Bridging Academic Traditions to Build Multilingual Communities

11:00 - 11:50am
Presented at: Immersion Conference 2014

This presentation will explore what the foreign language (FL) and English as a second language/bilingual education worlds have to share with each other, and how understanding both traditions is critical for effective two-way immersion (TWI) implementation. Participants will have an opportunity to reflect on their own professional identity and that of their colleagues, and to consider what concepts from the partner field would enhance their own practice and the implementation of their program.
