Dr. Fernando Naiditch, Associate Professor in the Department of Teaching and Learning, was recently invited by the National Association for Bilingual Education (NABE) to be the keynote speaker at the upcoming NABE Research & Evaluation Institute, which will be held during the Annual NABE Conference in New York City, February 8-10, 2022.
This year, participants to the NABE Research & Evaluation Institute are coming from various US states and abroad. Their research projects include aspects of pedagogy, program implementation and development, policy, and advocacy.
Since 1975, the NABE has been a non-profit membership organization that works to advocate for educational equity and academic excellence for bilingual/multilingual students in a global society.
NABE’s priorities include: Improving instructional programs and practices for linguistically and culturally diverse children; providing bilingual and dual language educators with high-quality professional development opportunities; securing adequate funding for quality dual language programs serving English Learners (ELs); and keeping the rights of ELs clearly in focus as states and communities move forward with sustainable educational reforms.
