Please send proposals to Yolanda Medina


 

This strand focuses on multilingual education programs that successfully address students’ multilingualism, multilingual literacy, and sociocultural competence.

We seek proposals that focus on how language programs implement institutional policies and instructional practices that accomplish program quality and student achievement.

More specifically, presenters are invited to consider how one or more of the following principles can ensure quality multilingual programs: program structure, curriculum, instruction, assessment and accountability, staff quality and professional development, family and community involvement, and support from policy makers and resources.

 

 


 

For each of these strands, we are accepting proposals in the following categories:

  • Papers on concluded or ongoing research in intercultural education and related fields
  • Theoretical papers
  • Posters, particularly on intercultural educational experiences and/or pilot-projects
  • Book and audio/video presentations, particularly on didactical material relating to intercultural education and related fields
  • Art objects, theater and circus performances, films, etc.
  • Inspiring short workshops
  • Adaptive e-learning tools

For each of these categories, we are currently asking for abstracts, which should be sent to the respective strand chairs (see above).

 

  • The abstract should be between 200 and 400 words in length
  • Abstracts are to be submitted in English
  • The abstract has to specify the name, institutional affiliation and email address of the author(s) as well as the strand to which it is submitted.
  • Please specify also the equipment required for your presentation (PC, beamer, DVD player, Internet access, etc.).
Finally, you are asked to express your commitment to submit a complete version of your presentation once your abstract has been accepted

 

All abstracts should be sent by Sept. 1, 2019 directly to the Strand Chair(s). Also indicate a preference of day you would like to present.

We cannot guarantee that your presentation can happen on that day., but we will try our best.
Note that the presentations will take place within blocks of 90 minutes. We will attempt to keep the number of presentations to 4 per block, or less. This implies 15 minute presentations plus Q and A. Some strands will utilize a more dynamic World Cafe format at certain times, which will allow for longer presentations. This is at the discretion of the strand chairs.
Also note that we can accept  a maximum of 3 authors per paper and that one of those three authors has to attend the conference. If there are more than 3 authors, two authors need to attend and pay conference fees.
