One school many languages: bridging research and school practice through plurilingual education

The conference is the closing event of the project and aims to be a venue for exchange and dialogue on recent qualitative- and/or quantitative-oriented research within the realm of plurilingual primary and secondary education, with a focus on the following thematic orientations:

  1. Practices, challenges and opportunities for reciprocal learning and knowledge transfer between researchers and educational stakeholders;
  2. Empirical evidence of the sustainability and impact of in- and pre-service training in plurilingual education on teachers’ competences, attitudes and teaching practices.
  3. Projects, initiatives and best practices aimed at valorising language diversity, developing curiosity and interest towards languages, cultures and linguistic phenomena in diverse educational contexts.

At this conference, there will be only one category of presentation:

  • Full paper: 20 minutes plus 5-10 minutes discussion

Authors are welcome to submit more than one contribution, but can be the first author of only one contribution. While we highly welcome contributions relating to any language and combination of languages, proposals should be submitted in English, German or Italian. All presenters will be kindly asked to prepare their slides in English if presenting in another language.

The conference is an on-site event and will be held at Eurac Research in Bolzano/Bozen (Italy).
