Call for Presenters for the 2020 Migrant Education Program and English Language Development Conference
The Center for Schools and Communities, in partnership with the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE), is seeking relevant and compelling presentations for the 8th annual Migrant Education Program and English Language Development Conference “Education Without Borders” that will be held March 3-5, 2020 in Harrisburg, Pa.
The conference is designed to provide a space for parents, teachers, administrators, scholars and PDE staff to engage in professional practices of knowledge sharing, discussion, critical analysis, and re-visioning of educational policies and practices for the purpose of advancing the quality of educational experiences for migrant education and English learner students and families.
Each conference session seeks to promote the conference’s broader goal of strengthening systems and building capacity at all levels. Following an ecological systems approach, the conference attends to both formal and informal learning across the lifespan, attending to students’ positive educational and developmental growth from birth through high school graduation by promoting strong partnerships between home, school and community contexts. The conference sponsors seek high-quality interactive workshops that explicitly draw connections between current theory and research and educational practice.Read More
