Research to Policy: Critical Conversations in Language Education

r2p:cc2021(1)

The virtual migration of student learning & interaction from the classroom to the cloud is leaving many behind.

Almost one year since the pandemic began, policymakers now have access to the latest studies, research, and resources on the current status as well as best practices in digital education for our most vulnerable learners.

Throughout 2021, CAL will host live, open discussions with policymakers on the status of Digital Equity in U.S. Education.

Each episode of our 30-minute webinar series, “Research to Policy: Critical Conversations in Language Education,” examines education for multilingual learners and culturally diverse populations through the lens of digital equity. Topics range from student assessment, teacher education, students with disabilities, early childhood education, and more.
