*** Event Postponed ***

In view of the global situation regarding Covid-19, we have decided to postpone our forthcoming conference, originally scheduled for 22-24 April 2020, to 28-30 April 2021.

The ALTE Board of Trustees and Secretariat, and the team at Instituto Cervantes, believe that this is the only responsible decision, given the increasing level of risks to health, restrictions on travel and gatherings and the high probability that a large number of presenters and delegates would be unable to attend the event.

We are disappointed that we will not be able to meet with you all in Madrid in April 2020. We have attracted an unprecedented range and quality of plenaries and conference papers, but we are confident that we will be able to hold an even more exciting conference at a rearranged time.

ALTE’s Trustees and Secretariat will of course continue to monitor the situation and provide regular updates to you about the postponed event.

ORGANISATOR

ALTE is delighted to work with its member Instituto Cervantes to run and host the 7th International Conference. Please visit our sponsors page to learn more about Instituto Cervantes and find out more about our sponsors for the event, to whom we are extremely grateful for their support.

    


LOCATIE

De conferentie zal plaatsvinden in het hotel Novotel Madrid Center, in de centraal gelegen buurt Salamanca, zo'n tien minuten wandelen van het park El Retiro.


THEMA

Safeguarding the Future of Multilingual Assessment

Het is ALTE's missie om richtlijnen uit te schrijven voor toetsing en evaluatie van taal, om taaldiversiteit te bevorderen (zowel gesproken talen als gebarentalen) via meertaligheid, en om de impact van taalonderwijs en de toetsing en evaluatie van taal te maximaliseren, in Europa en ver daarbuiten. Tijdens onze zevende internationale conferentie bestuderen we hoe we faire, valide en ethische praktijken kunnen waarborgen in het licht van de nieuwe ontwikkelingen in ons meertalig studiegebied.



SUBTHEMA'S

De plenaire presentaties, lezingen, workshops en posterpresentaties zullen inzoomen op een van de vier subthema's van de conferentie:

  • Het construct definiëren van meertaligheid in taaltoetsing
  • Innovaties in taaltoetsing
  • Faire en valide toetsing en evaluatie
  • Bedenkingen bij de ethiek en rechtvaardigheid in de meertalige evaluatiecontext

CONFERENCE PROGRAMME

An outline of the conference programme is now available to help plan your time in Madrid. A more detailed programme will be ready in February 2021.

LAMI-FORUM

De internationale conferentie zal opnieuw plaats bieden aan het LAMI-forum. De sessie is gewijd aan migratie en integratie, twee belangrijke en actuele onderwerpen in ons studiegebied.



MEERTALIGHEID BEVORDEREN

While the main conference language is English, some paper presentations and workshops will be given in Spanish, French, German and Italian too.

Plenary sessions and the LAMI Forum will be simultaneously interpreted into both Spanish and International Sign Language. Other sessions will be interpreted into International Sign Language on request.

ALTE - the Association of Language Testers in Europe, is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO), registered in England, charity number 1184799.
