Conference workshop "Multilingualism and Diversity Education"

A cooperation of the Center of Diversity Education, the CeLeb and the IdSL

25 to 29 July 2016, University of Hildesheim

Due to their relevance for contemporary developments in our society, the topics multilingualism and diversity are of great research importance in both higher education and daily interaction. This conference workshop aims to present, discuss, and look further into the latest international research about these topics. The Summer School: Multilingualism and Diversity Education invites international speakers to enter into a dialogue with students, graduate students, and researchers.

The conference languages will be English and German.

Die Summer School: Multilingualism and Diversity lädt international und national sehr ausgewiesene Referenten ein, die mit Studierenden, externen und lokalen Promovenden und Wissenschaftlern in einen Dialog eintreten. Damit werden die Ziele verfolgt, Niedersachsen als Region der Forschung, der Förderung des wissenschaftlichen Nachwuchses und des Studiums darzustellen und ein Forum für internationale, hochkarätige Diskussionen in Niedersachsen zu schaffen.

Die Thematik Multilingualism and Diversity ist von großer Aktualität und Brisanz – sowohl in der universitären Lehre als auch bei der Arbeit und im alltäglichen Leben. Mit der ersten Summer School soll die Möglichkeit geboten werden, aktuelle, internationale Forschungen zu Multilingual and Second Language Acquisition kennenzulernen, diese zu diskutieren und weiterzudenken.

Die Referenten werden jeweils an einem Tag ihre Forschung präsentieren und gemeinsam über den gesamten Zeitraum diskutieren. Referenten der Stiftung Universität Hildesheim werden den vierten Tag gestalten. Am fünften Tag werden die Teilnehmer und Teilnehmerinnen ihre Projekte präsentieren und erhalten dazu ein Feedback der lokalen Organisatoren und der Referenten. Das Ziel ist, ein hochkarätiges Begegnungsforum zu schaffen.

Die Konferenzsprachen sind Englisch und Deutsch.
