Kia Ora and welcome to the LED 2011 conference.
|Keynote presentation recordings now available!|
The 3rd International Conference on Language, Education and Diversity (LED 2011) is the next conference in an international quadrennial conference series which focuses specifically on the impact of increased cultural linguistic diversity, at both national and supranational levels, and its consequences for the theory, policy and practice of language education. As such, LED provides an international forum that brings together the latest academic and policy discussions, and promotes critical debate, on the often-complex interconnections between diversity and language education.
As you will see, the draft LED programme is now available. You will notice that we have adjusted slightly the start and end times of the conference. The pre conference workshops are to be held on Tuesday 22 November. This will be followed by the formal conference opening, now on the Tuesday evening, with a pōwhiri (formal Māori welcoming ceremony), the first keynote address, and an extra function, with wine and canapés provided.
