Abstract:

Integrating creativity and autonomy at EMI Universities in China seems to be one of the main challenges of a successful curriculum and assessment design. The switch from the test teaching approach to content and language learning proves a significant difficulty, especially at those universities that offer UK degrees in China. As a practitioner teaching and designing modules for Chinese students for over a decade, I will aim at providing insights into successful curriculum and assessment design that takes into consideration not only students educational background, but also their prospective international MA degrees requirements. This presentation will demonstrate what creativity and autonomy can lead to if the right approach and tools are applied within the curriculum and assessment design.
