III ELT Conference Rionegro Bilingüe 2019

Inclusive Bilingual Education: Making English teaching and learning sustainable through the adaptation of a language policy

Date: September 12, 2019
Place: Centro Comercial San Nicolás. Auditorio, segundo piso. Rionegro, Antioquia.

Rionegro Bilingüe has marked a milestone in language teaching and learning for Antioquia. Not only has it managed to generate a sustainable program that has spearheaded the four years of the current administrative term, but also the significance of this program is visible in the city as a whole. Generating programs of this type for the region, which go beyond the school system, seek to generate impact on society and take into account the interests of the learners, the school community, and the region to show how advancing in English can positively impact the economy, science, culture, and education. Nonetheless, programs like this need to evolve and leadership on language policy is needed to ensure that long-lasting programs can continue to be a priority in ensuring that all students have equitable opportunities to learn, through meaningful participation and engagement which in the end generate successful outcomes. In the III ELT Conference Rionegro Bilingüe 2019, participants will explore national language and education policies and how Rionegro Bilingüe has generated such a positive impact on the region and its inhabitants. Plenary discussions, panel debates, and workshops will provide an arena to analyze policies and practices so that they can be adapted for social development.
