Conference Description

The fourth international conference on immersion education brings together researchers and educators from one-way world language immersion, two-way bilingual immersion, and indigenous/heritage immersion for language and culture revitalization to engage in research-informed dialogue and professional exchange across languages, levels, learner audiences, and sociopolitical contexts. This unique conference includes five plenaries, many paper presentations and symposia, two lunches and a fun dinner-dance. And, for an additional fee, participants can choose from the following options:

Wednesday School Visits: choice of 6 different immersion education contexts

Thursday Pre-conference Workshops–9 options in the morning and 10 in the afternoon such as:
• Biliteracy Development and Strengthening Bridges Between Languages,
• LinguaFolio and Student Self Assessment of Oral Proficiency,
• Introduction to Project GLAD (Guided Language Acquisition Development),
• and many more!

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to learn from an exceptional roster of researchers and educators whose work is specifically focused on immersion education!
