    Posted 14 days ago

    Dear Colleagues:

    We are kicking off our webinar series with the following;
    Date/Time: Wednesday, July 22, 2020, 10:00-11:00 PM Eastern Time
    Title: Designing for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: Exploring Innovative Curriculum Models of Bilingual Education and Beyond.

    "A complete model of bilingualism must capture the diversity of language use in this ecosystem, and the field has now recognized that it is insufficient to simply talk about "monolinguals" vs. "bilinguals" in terms of cognitive control and the advantage or disadvantage therein." (Ping Li, 2015).

    At this panel, we will explore an array of perspectives, experiences and strategies about leveraging campus diversity to foster intercultural understanding and multilingual awareness. The B-MEIS Webinar Series is dedicated to re-imagining bi/multilingual education in the era of changing linguistic landscapes. The webinar will be recorded and shared with a broader TESOL community.
