VII International Conference on Bilingual Education
in Educational Institutions
The University of Valladolid and the Bilingual Teaching Association are organizing the VII International Congress on Bilingual Education in Educational Centers –CIEB 2020– which will be held in Valladolid, in the Faculty of Philosophy and Letters of the University of Valladolid on October 16, 17 and 18, 2020.
Towards an international education
CIEB 2020, under the slogan “Towards an international education”, aims to continue analysing the functioning of bilingual education in the Spanish educational system, the programmes, their advantages and disadvantages, their development, their management, their results, in Spain, in Europe and in the world and to adopt a view towards international education that prepares for the global and interconnected society. Globalization requires the preparation of our young people for a future without barriers and without limits in which a solid linguistic training will undoubtedly be a necessary and valuable tool.
A priority objective is to generate a forum for discussion, debate, the exchange of ideas and experiences among professionals in bilingual education and language teaching and, at the same time, to support teachers who strive to offer bilingual education to their students, and who work tirelessly, striving to acquire the greatest possible mastery of the language of instruction and the highest possible skills, trying to incorporate the latest technological advances into their teaching and to use, in language teaching, the various methodologies in vogue today.
One of the objectives of the CIEB 2020 Congress is to promote the presence of national and international experts in both practical and theoretical aspects of bilingual education.
The VII CIEB Congress maintains the configuration of Plenary Lectures, Plenary Sessions, Plenary Panels, Communications and Workshops, which combines academic and educational aspects, fulfils the expectations of speakers and attendees, and reinforces a path of analysis and reflection on bilingual education which, with the participation and support of the ten universities that make up the Congress, will allow for the continued analysis of various aspects that are currently of concern in order to provide answers and solutions.
The VII International Congress on Bilingual Education in Educational Institutions – CIEB 2020, is aimed at:
Teachers, secondary school teachers, university professors, university students, educational managers, researchers and educational administrations, experts from any educational sector or related to education who are interested in everything related to bilingual education and language teaching in public, subsidised or private centres, in immersion programmes (AICOLE/CLIL) in foreign languages or in any other modality.
