Multilingualism and Multimodality in Higher Education - 6th ICLHE Conference (call for paper)

Zuletzt aktualisiert: 2 Feb 2019

The 6th ICLHE Conference, entitled ''Multilingualism and multimodality in Higher Education'', will take place in Castellón (Spain) from 15 October to 18 October 2019.

Call deadline: February 17th 2019

ICLHE conferences have traditionally addressed issues related to teaching and learning in an additional language, including student and teacher perceptions, teacher training, staff effectiveness, learning effectiveness, and program development. This 6th ICLHE Conference will continue to address how focused language instruction/assessment can be utilized as a foundation for disciplinary content learning, with specific consideration to the multimodal nature of languages and of today's teaching and learning practices.
