  • The sessions are built around the sharing of your expertise as a TWBI/DL teacher, or administrator or teacher trainer who works directly with both Native Speakers and English Speakers in your TWBI program.
  • Reference the “Guiding Principles of Dual Language Education” within the framework of the presentation.
  • Submit titles, descriptions, and workshop materials that are error-free, edited for grammar, punctuation and capitalization. ATDLE reserves the right to edit titles and workshop descriptions.
  • Include time for a formal workshop presentation that includes group discussions, a small break if necessary, and group work so that participants are fully engaged in your work.
  • Indicate whether or not you will present the workshop in a language other than English.
  • Please note that if you do not send in your handouts for uploading by the deadline you will be responsible for your own duplication and distribution.
