Abstract [en]

Nowadays, most universities have policies for internationalization, and in such policies, attention is increasingly given to internationalization as an aspect of students’ learning. However, there have so far been limited efforts to study how such student-centered internationalization can be carried out in practice. This article explores linkages between policy and practice, and it reports on a case study of how local policy goals of internationalization are carried out at the classroom level in a university in Sweden. Through fine-grained analyses of classroom interactions, it is demonstrated how a teacher and his students put policy goals into practice and what aspects stimulate them to do so. More generally, the results contribute to knowledge of how internationalization of higher education can be encouraged and practiced in local learning settings in the form of social actions and how it is carried out in a certain context at a certain time.

Abstract [sv]

Den här texten handlar om ett högskolepedagogiskt samarbete som syftat till att skapa en ämnesintegrerad introduktion i akademiskt skrivande för polisstudenter vid Södertörns högskola. I texten beskrivs hur samarbetet har sett ut och vad som har fått introduktionen att leva kvar i programmet. Vi diskuterar utmaningar som uppstått och avslutar med några råd till den som vill genomföra liknande satsningar och samarbeten.

Abstract [en]

In this chapter, five studies of language practice in Swedish higher education are compared and discussed with focus on how the policy of English-medium teaching is assumed to relate to practices ‘on the ground’. It is demonstrated that the earlier studies take a normative approach towards policy and practice, in the sense that practice is assumed to coincide with policy, while the later studies approach policy and practice from a dynamic point of view, assuming that other languages may be used in addition to the policy-prescribed medium. The underlying approach has implications for the studies’ design and focus, but also for their results concerning the use of Swedish and English in higher education in Sweden.

Abstract [en]

Analysing student interaction at an international university in Sweden, this article investigates how the transnational strategy of using English as a medium of instruction can be (re)constructed by students in a local context. The analysis focuses on students’ expectations—or norms—for when it is appropriate to use English, and shows that English medium-instruction does not necessarily mean that students speak English all the time. The local language Swedish is used in connection to teaching and students establish local norms for when, how and with whom it is appropriate—or inappropriate—to speak English. A conclusion is that although language choice at the international university is influenced by global factors, it is still firmly a local construction.

Abstract [en]

This chapter presents a study of the linguistic milieu that is generated when students from different parts of the world meet and interact in international university settings. The study is conducted in nominally English-medium courses at a Swedish university, and focuses on how students use Swedish and other non-authorised languages in addition to English. The multilingual characteristics of the milieu are exemplified and discussed, and it is demonstrated that the language of the surrounding society holds a special position. In the era of globalisation, universities are part of internationalisation processes, but yet situated in a local context marked by a certain history and specific linguistic resources.

Abstract [en]

As part of the internationalization of higher education, more and more European university courses are being taught in English. Exchanges between universities have grown, and students from different parts of the world now often study together. What does this international environment look like in linguistic terms? Do students and teaching staff speak only the course language English, or are other languages also used, and if so, in what situations and contexts? These questions are discussed on the basis of an ethnographic study of an English-medium university course in Sweden. Extended examples of interaction show that participants adapt their use of languages to place-bound needs and conditions, giving rise to local norms. The national language Swedish holds a special position, as the first language of the majority and the lecturer. The course language English is dominant as a de facto lingua franca, but local social and linguistic needs and conditions leave room for other languages as well. Overall, course participants orient to three competing principles of language use: (a) English as a lingua franca, (b) the speaker's orientation to her or his own language and (c) the special position of Swedish, as the first language of the majority and the lecturer.

Abstract [en]

In Swedish language planning the position of English vis-à-vis Swedish is attracting attention. This is due to the concern that the growing use of English in certain domains may result in Swedish loosing ground. Surveys have shown that English is frequently used in fields with extensive international collaboration, such as higher education, business and politics. Yet, knowledge about actual language use and patterns of language choice in international contexts is poor and studies on how the involved parties themselves understand the situation are lacking. This paper draws on data from an ongoing PhD project on the use of Swedish in English medium university education and discusses students’ language choice patterns in two English medium lectures in Sweden: the one taken from a faculty of social sciences and the other from a faculty of science and technology. Findings show that the use of Swedish differs between the two lectures and that the usage can be characterized as spontaneous. Interestingly, students speak Swedish in a number of study activities associated with the lectures. Even though Swedish is seldom heard in class, it dominates in study activities outside class. The number of exchange students in combination with students’ and teachers’ attitudes impact on language choices. Existing local language plans, however, do not seem to influence actual language use.
