All new lecturers at AAU taking the University’s pedagogical training course are to be certified in English as part of the course. This step has been taken to ensure the high quality of English language instruction at AAU. The AAU Centre for Language and Communication Services, LACS, will be in charge of the certification procedure.
At the request of the AAU management, AAU Language and Communication Services (LACS) has developed and implemented the programme ‘Certification for new Lectures in English as the Medium of Instruction’. AAU is the first Danish university to make certification in English language instruction a compulsory part of the course in university pedagogy for assistant professors (Adjunktpædagogikum). Certification assesses university instructors’ competences in lecturing and supervising in English. Founded on fair and transparent principles, it also provides an internationally recognised certificate of English competence.
In 2016 LACS started offering the EMI certification of other lecturers at AAU. This programme is identical to the programme for new lecturers: an initial screening, preparatory courses and the final certification.
Please contact LACS if you are interested in knowing more about language certification.
