Seventh International Conference on Immersion and Dual Language Education


February 6-9, 2019
The Westin Charlotte
Charlotte, NC

Conference Description

Immersion and dual language education continue to evolve as highly effective program models for launching students on the road to bi- and multilingualism and intercultural competence. School-based immersion, bilingual, and dual language programs involve a minimum of 50% subject-matter schooling through a second, world, heritage, or indigenous language at the preschool and elementary levels (PreK–5/6). Secondary or post-secondary continuation programs for elementary immersion/dual language graduates include a minimum of two subject courses.

We are currently seeking proposals for papers, discussion sessions, laptop poster sessions, and symposia on aspects of immersion and dual language education related to five conference strands

Strand I: Pedagogy and Assessment
Strand II: Advocacy & Policy
Strand III: Program Design, Development and Leadership
Strand IV: Culture, Identity and Community
Strand V: Professional Preparation and Learning 

In addition to basic, applied, and evaluation research, conference organizers welcome a range of practitioner perspectives including those of immersion and dual language teachers, administrators, curriculum coordinators, pedagogical coaches, parents, and specialists who work in these programs. Best practice sessions, discussion sessions, research paper sessions and symposia may report on data-based research, theoretical and conceptual analyses, or best practices in immersion and dual language classrooms. Laptop poster sessions will offer opportunities for informal, face-to-face discussions of research.

For full details of the call for proposals, please see the 2019 Immersion Conference Call for Proposals webpage.
