VIth International Conference on Bilingual Education
in Educational Institutions
The University of Granada, the English Teachers Association of Andalicía, together with the Asociación Enseñanza Bilingüe is organizing the VIth International Conference on Bilingual Education in Educational Institutions –CIEB 2019– that will be held in Granada on October 18th,19th, 20th, 2019, at the Educational Sciences Faculty of the University of Granada.
Languages. Bilingualism. Bilingual Education
CIEB 2019, under the motto “Languages. Bilingualism. Bilingual Education”, will continue analysing bilingual education within the Spanish Education system; the different bilingual programmes in the country, their advantages, disadvantages, how they develop, how they are implemented and managed, and what the results are. The Conference also seeks to pay a special attention to the differences between language teaching, bilingualism and bilingual education, taking into account the discussions raised at the previous 2017 and 2018 Conferences. All of these are well defined terms but they produce confusion, specially among families, when they are not appropriately used.
Generating a forum for discussion where ideas are exchanged among bilingual education and language teaching professionals is a prior objective. Primary and Secondary teachers deserve a strong support so that they continue providing the best bilingual education to their students by means of mastering the language instruction and by being as competent as posible. Technology and an updated methodology become essential tools for their teaching practices.
CIEB 2019 counts with the presence of national and international experts on the theory and practice of bilingualism.
The Conference offers plenary sessions, communications and workshops. It combines academic and educational aspects and fulfills speakers and participants’ expectations by reinforcing the analysis and the reflection on bilingual education. This, and the presence of eight other universities will allow to analyse problematic aspects in order to provide answers and solutions for them.
