DRONGO Talenfestival

October 2 - 3, 2020
Online event (based in Nijmegen)

Het thema van het DRONGO talenfestival 2020 is lezen. Lezen is leuk en het is goed voor je. Jaarlijks verschijnen er honderden prachtige boeken en er is een heel actieve leescultuur in Nederland. Lezen leidt tot een betere woordenschat, zorgt voor een betere focus en concentratie, traint de verbeelding en maakt je slimmer. Maatschappelijk gezien zorgt een gezonde leescultuur voor beter werk, minder schulden en een betere volksgezondheid. Lezen is een onmisbare competentie om maatschappelijk mee te draaien.

Het festival heeft dit jaar een hybride karakter: een ijzersterk offline programma dat wordt gelivestreamd, en een ongeëvenaard online programma. Registratie

HLSE organized an event to bring together heritage language programs and Dutch primary school teachers. See all details here.

Raising Multilingual Children

September 15, 2019
Eindhoven Library

Eindhoven is becoming increasingly international, and both children and schools go through a process of adjusting to this intercultural and multilingual environment. One of the first and most important tasks of expat children is to master the Dutch language. Many of these children are already born into multilingual families, exposed to at least two languages from their parents.


This talk by Elif Durgel will help parents become informed about the benefits of multilingual development and importance of mastering the local language for their children. Parents will leave this session with a clear understanding of which strategies they can to use to ensure  happy and healthy language development of their multilingual children.

October 3, 2019
Eindhoven

This conference brings together professionals in the field of language development and education on current topics. In a diverse society like the Dutch you meet children daily who grow up multilingual. Children of migrants and refugees often speak a different language at home than at school. However, children are often assumed to have Dutch as their mother tongue.

How does the language development of multilingual children work? How do you arrive at an integral pedagogical-didactic approach within multicultural classes?

This congress is intended for higher professional education (HBO) and academically trained professionals who are (jointly) responsible for contributing to the language development of multilingual children and teenagers. Think of speech therapists, linguists, teachers, education advisers, remedial teachers, ambulatory counselors, VVE employees, behavioral experts, psychologists, and pediatricians.

October 30, 2019
Amsterdam

The event Thuis in Taal: De meerwaarde van meertaligheid in het onderwijs is organized in collaboration with Faculty of Humanities at the University of Amsterdam and Stichting Platform Sociale Binding.  The event will take place from 20:00 - 21:30 at Spui 25 in Amsterdam. Registration is free, but cancellations must be reported.


Mother tongue lessons help children learn Dutch. Nevertheless, the government decided in 2004 to abolish this type of education. Instead, heritage language schools were established where children are taught in their own language. In the current situation, the migrant communities themselves have been made responsible for education in their own language, with certain inconveniences. During this program we reflect on the role and responsibility of national and local government when it comes to a vision of language skills in education and beyond.

October 28, 2021
Online event (based in the Netherlands)

Diversiteit en kwaliteitsvol onderwijs kunnen perfect samengaan. Daar bestaat voldoende wetenschappelijk bewijs voor. Het blijkt ook uit de vele voorbeelden van scholen in binnen- en buitenland. Helaas vind je die nauwelijks terug in (o.a.) de lerarenopleidingen. Met zijn boek “Onderwijs in een gekleurde samenleving”, wil professor Orhan Agirdag (KU Leuven & UvA) dat veranderen op basis van een empirisch onderbouwd verhaal. 
Het lectoraat Meertaligheid & Geletterdheid organiseert een online symposium, waarin dr. Orhan Agirdag als gastspreker zal optreden. Dit symposium is opengesteld voor iedereen die belangstelling heeft voor ‘Onderwijs in een gekleurde samenleving’. Deelname is gratis.

Online event (based in Eindhoven)

De werkgroep Leesoffensief Eindhoven organiseert een Webinar over taalvaardigheid en ouderbetrokkenheid. Er bestaan grote verschillen tussen de taalvaardigheid van kinderen als zij starten op school. De invloed van ouders is onmiskenbaar. Maar het is niet voor alle ouders vanzelfsprekend om met hun kinderen te lezen, spelletjes te spelen of gesprekken te voeren.

Kun jij, als manager, directeur, leerkracht, mediacoach, pedagogisch medewerker of ondersteuner, bijdragen aan de thuistaalomgeving van de kinderen? Hoe doe je dat? En welke rol speelt meertaligheid hierin? Dr. Martine van der Pluijm, docent en onderzoeker bij Hogeschool Rotterdam, deed hier onderzoek naar en deelt haar inzichten met ons op dinsdag 2 november van 15.30 tot 17.00 uur tijdens een webinar. Wanneer je je hebt aangemeld, ontvang je na afloop een link om het webinar terug te kijken.

Online event (based in Dublin)

Are you a primary school teacher or a post-primary language teacher?  Do you want to provide your students who have a migrant or refugee background with more opportunities to use and develop their home language(s) at school, all while supporting raising proficiency levels in the language of schooling? 

Then join us for a thematic seminar that will address such issues as literacy development, overall student well-being and motivation to engage in the learning process. The seminar will put a special emphasis on the classroom practices that can achieve simultaneous support for home languages and the languages of schooling.

Over the last eighteen months, the ECML’s Professional Network Forum has led an initiative focusing on the impact of the pandemic on language education. Co-funded as part of the ECML-EC Cooperation Agreement, this series of activities began with a Europe-wide survey on language teachers’ experiences during Covid and on lessons learned.

The colloquium will look back in order to move forward: it will report on the results of the survey which attracted over 1750 responses and on the activities which have followed it. These include two online think tanks, case studies by teachers, and a draft guide for language educators on how to cope with the kind of challenges caused by the pandemic.

Radboud University, Nijmegen

Nederland is een meertalige samenleving. Volgens het CBS spreekt 25% van de bevolking in Nederland thuis meestal een andere taal dan standaardnederlands. In de meeste steden in Nederland worden naar schatting honderden thuistalen gesproken.  

De middag staat in het teken van de dilemma's waar de toegenomen meertaligheid de samenleving voor plaatst. Zonder gezamenlijke taal kunnen we elkaar niet verstaan. Maar hoe meer talenkennis, hoe beter de superdiverse samenleving functioneert. Hoeveel ruimte kunnen, willen en moeten we maken voor andere talen? Die vraag is heel actueel in het onderwijs en de kinderopvang, maar ook op het werk, op straat en eigenlijk overal.   

In het eerste plenaire deel zoomen we in op het onderwijs. Drie deskundigen met verschillende visies op deze kwestie gaan met elkaar en met het publiek in gesprek. In het interactieve gedeelte maak je kennis met inspirerende materialen, en kun je in discussie gaan over de diemma’s rond meertaligheid in en buiten het onderwijs. Adriaan van Dis vertelt over de invloed van verschillende talen op zijn leven en op zijn werk als schrijver.

Hybrid event (based in Bangkok)

Global research has demonstrated that children who speak ethnic minority languages at home yet study in majority languages at school exhibit lower levels of literacy and numeracy than their peers. More recently, with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic these ethnolinguistic minority children have fallen even further behind, partly due to their inability to access distance learning materials in languages they understand. In addition, many of these children are representative of a ‘digital divide’ in their lacking electronic devices or internet access in low socioeconomic or geographically remote communities.

The side event, ‘Building Back Better: Mother Tongue-Based Multilingual Education for Ethnic Minority Children’ will discuss how mother tongue-based multilingual education (MTB MLE) can significantly help such learners. Our expert panel will address fundamental issues with guiding questions, such as:

What is MTB MLE and how does it improve students’ learning outcomes?
How does MTB MLE help students learn other languages, including English?
What digital learning tools are most helpful for children who don’t speak the school language and have limited internet access?
How does MTB MLE engage local communities and promote social harmony and inclusion?
How would endorsing UNESCO’s Bangkok Statement on Language and Inclusion help a country achieve Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG 4)?

This webinar will explain the background to this Recommendation - where it came from, how it is structured, and why it was adopted.  It will focus on key messages and what these mean for decision-makers, drawing on the seven principles that underpin the Recommendation's conception of plurilingual and intercultural education. It will conclude by outlining the series of follow-up events planned for the academic year 2022-2023 that will explore specific aspects of the Recommendation and their implications for different target groups.

Modern societies host a superdiverse population where social exclusion or marginalization may prevent people's wellbeing and health. For instance, most public administrations make important efforts in implementing policies aimed at teaching the majority language to the newcomers (Dutch, German, or English), but most practitioners know that there is more than that to do to foster social cohesion. In certain schools, the student population is so diverse that dozens of languages from local and migrant minorities are spoken in the schoolyard, to the point that some schools have adopted restrictive policies about language use in class and in the school area. What are the best policies for addressing this diversity? This interdisciplinary school is meant for graduate students, PhD students, early career researchers and professionals with an interest in diversity management and social justice.

This is a joint conference of the EECERA SIG “Multilingual Childhoods” and the AILA ELLReN (Early Language Learning Research Network), organised by the Department of Languages and Literature Education of the University of Granada. It aims to facilitate a forum of discussion for researchers and practitioners on language learning and multilingual education in the early years (0-12 years olds). It is planned in a hybrid format so that possibilities of physical and virtual participation will be offered.
