Dual Language Conference is Multi-Day, Multi-Venue Celebration of Multilingualism
The San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) is happy to bring back the San Diego Dual Language Conference as a live, in-person event. Designed for teachers, teacher candidates, administrators, and other family/community champions of language learners, this conference invites educators and their partners to strengthen their resolve, knowledge, and joy.
“For more than 20 years, this conference has successfully brought together excellent speakers, panelists, sessions, and networking to renew the commitment of local, regional, and national advocates of multilingualism,” said Jorge Cuevas Antillon, SDCOE district advisor for curriculum and instruction, dual language, and English learners. “We are excited to welcome back people in person for this professional learning and celebration of dual language, biliteracy and second language learning.”
This year, participants will enjoy a multi-day, multi-venue in-person experience, joining other dual language educators and partners from throughout California and across the county.
