The Diversity in Language and Culture Conference (DLCC) brings together educators, students, faculty, staff, and other community members to explore issues that are relevant and pressing related to education. Each conference includes a keynote speaker, breakout session options, and a closing remarks/Q&A time.
In this year’s 4th annual conference, Dr. Ramón Martínez from Stanford University will provide a keynote presentation entitled “Thinking Beyond the English Learner Label: Reframing Multilingual Learners and Re-imagining Pedagogical Possibilities.”
Other sessions during the day will include presentations from community partners who have received a grant from the Coalition for Diversity in Language and Culture entitled “Educator Learning Community: Rethinking Dual Language/Immersion Collaborative Planning & Instruction” and “Real World English: Expansion into Latin America.”
This event is offered virtually on Saturday, February 12 from 10:00am-1:00pm EST. Registration is free but required. All are welcome and encouraged to attend who have interests in education, language, and promoting equitable approaches to teaching and learning.
