9th Cambridge Conference on Language Endangerment - Language Revitalisation: New speakers, new challenges, new linguistic forms

The main aim of language revitalisation is to set an endangered language back ‘on its feet’. Revitalisation strategies may be developed and implemented by linguists, the State, language activists and the speakers themselves. However, these strategies, which attempt to make the endangered language an attractive and useful resource for modern users, may result in the transformation of the endangered language rather than restoring it to its old self. 

Venue

University of Cambridge

Alison Richard Building, 7 West Road, Cambridge CB3 9DT

Information

The standard fee is £45 with a reduced fee of £30 for students (proof of student status will need to be presented). This includes lunches and refreshments at the conference and a wine reception.

World STEM Education Conference - Istanbul, Turkey

WSEC 2018 ISTANBUL

Stem Istanbul 2018.png

Istanbul Aydın University (IAU) and The International Council of Associations for Science Education (ICASE) organize the World Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Education Conference.

The term “STEM education” refers to the teaching and learning associated with the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, and typically includes educational activities across all grade levels and in both formal and informal classroom settings.  The integration of STEM disciplines aims to develop the “four C’s” of the 21st century skills: creativity, critical thinking, collaboration and communication.

The primary goal of STEM education is to prepare students for their future lives and careers, and to create problem solvers that are prepared to engage in design and production. Therefore, its culture of inquiry leads to important contributions to the country’s economic developments since students will be better prepared to use high-level critical thinking skills in innovative ways.
