About the Conference
With a continued history of supporting Immersion and Dual Language Educators & Scholars, we are excited to announce that the Seventh International Conference on Immersion and Dual Language Education will take place in Charlotte, NC, USA, February 6-9, 2019. With the incredible history passed to us by the Center for Advanced Research on Language Acquisition at the University of Minnesota, we are proud to gather 10+ school tours, 100+ sessions, and 20+ workshops focused on the Dual Language and Immersion education world.
In 2016, the conference welcomed over 40 sponsors and exhibitors to Minnesota (see who). We are pleased to offer over 15 sponsorship levels and 30+ exhibitor tables for organizations to share with attendees. Exhibits should offer materials and services related to PreK–16 immersion and dual language teaching as well as texts and resources for immersion/dual language researchers and teacher educators. Content materials (math, social studies, science, language arts) in non-English languages as well as professional development materials for immersion teachers are welcome.
The Sixth International Conference on Immersion and Dual Language Education was proud to host over 1,100 educators and professionals from across the globe. #NCDLI2019 is looking forward to meeting the challenge of bringing the same quality of presenters, sessions and invited guests to North Carolina. We extend an invitation to you to join us in Charlotte with over 1,100 dedicated educators supporting second language teaching and research.
The conference will be held at the Westin Charlotte located at 601 College Street in downtown Charlotte. More information, including hotel reservations can be found here. Special conference rates in effect until January 6, 2019.
