International Conference on Research in Multilingualism: Innovation and New Challenges – Oviedo, 14-16 March 2018

Organized by members of ALCE (Applied Linguistics in Language and Culture Acquisition) at the University of Oviedo, this multilingual international conference (English, Spanish, German, and French) connects the world of actual teaching in the classroom to that of educational design and linguistic policy, and all of them to the empirical research in the learning and acquisition of one or several languages and cultures in linguistic immersion contexts. For this reason, the congress is of interest to those who are in contact with any aspect of learning one or several foreign languages in any educational level, or those who wish to do so in a near future.

Keynote speakers:

  • ‘ROAD-MAPPING’ as a (re)framing tool for EMI interactional research by Ute Smit (Universität Wien, Austria)
  • Researching language policies & professional development in the international university by Emma Dafouz (Universidad Complutense de Madrid)
  • Repensar el multilingüismo desde la investigación intercultural (Rethinking multilingualism from intercultural research) by Ana Ruiz (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid)
  • What are the key factors in effective bilingual (or CLIL) programmes: What we’ve learned over 20 years by Mark Levy (British Council, Madrid)

One workshop:

Common Framework for Digital Teaching Competence by Arantxa Ruiz (U. de Cantabria)

Symposium: Internationalisation of Universities and the National Language

On 4 May 2018, KU Leuven will organise this international symposium. During this symposium, we want to learn from testimonials from mainly European universities that are confronted with the (apparent) contradiction between internationalisation and the protection of their own language and culture. We should not expect one ultimate solution or a one-fits-all approach. What we do hope to find are guidelines on how to stay a leading international university without losing an important strength: the commitment to the own identity.
