Ana Ruiz participates in the I International Conference on Research in Multilingualism: Innovation and New Challenges, held at the Universidad de Oviedo (Spain). She has been invited to present her work in a plenary session, with the title “Rethinking multilingualism from the perspective of intercultural research“.
The conference is focused on the fact that the expansion of bilingual and multilingual education in an increasingly globalised world involves a series of intrinsic challenges to which both teachers and students respond with changes and innovations –technological, methodological or procedural– with respect to the traditional model of teaching-learning. In parallel with this, it also offers an interesting field of study to undertake research in the learning of a language in all its domains. The conference would like to connect 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.
