This two-day conference at Columbia University’s Teachers College will analyze the development, implementation, and transformation of intercultural bilingual education across Latin America. Through presentations, panels, and discussion, participants will trace the trajectory of concepts and policies shaping intercultural bilingual education, paying special attention to the ways in which these were adapted and appropriated at local, national, and transnational levels.

The conference will also host a professional development workshop in which participants will explore comparative experiences in bilingual intercultural teacher professional development in Latin America and the United States, as well as experience and discuss practices for implementation.

The conference is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Please register at
