CoDesigns. Envisioning Multi-sited Language Education Policies



Jyväskylä, Finland



University of Jyväskylä



June 20-22, 2016



**Deadline extended to January 24, 2016**





Welcome to the international conference on CoDesigns. Envisioning Multi-sited Language Education Policies in Jyväskylä, Finland, June 20-22, 2016.



The Conference is organized and planned as a collaborative effort of the University of Jyväskylä Language Campus and by one of the University’s national tasks; i.e. The Finnish Network for Language Education Policies. The Language Campus actors, the Network, and the research projects working within these contexts aim at increasing our awareness of the significance of language related questions within education and the society at large. Further, the conference aims at increasing dialogue between researchers, policy makers, practitioners and other actors in the field of language education.



The Conference encourages the participants to submit innovative panels, workshops and other presentations that aim at promoting empowering designs and approaches to language education policy. Hence the theme of co-designs: rather than focus on “producers” and “users” of language education policy, we would like to turn our attention towards policy formation as a two-way co-operative process.



The Conference combines Finnish and international expertise in applied linguistics, mother tongue and foreign language education, educational policy and classroom research among others.



The Conference is aimed at all language and education researchers and professionals who wish to deepen their expertise in questions addressed at the conference: academic researchers, graduate and PhD students, language teachers, and special education teachers.

We are now inviting proposals for presentations in the international conference on CoDesigns. Envisioning Multi-sited Language Education Policies.
