Colloquium on Interdisciplinary Teacher Education in Foreign Languages

Presentation |

The Bachelor of Arts Program of Modern Languages with a Major in English and French of the San Buenaventura University in Cartagena is organizing the Fifth Colloquium on Interdisciplinary Teacher Education in Foreign Languages (CIFLEX). The colloquium was first established as an event for Colombian researchers and faculty. However, since the second event, it has turned into an important gathering where pedagogy, science, research, and technology meet, and where experts in the field from different countries are able to share their knowledge and experiences with both faculty and students from a variety of foreign language programs.

| Objectives |

To reflect on the goals of higher education, oriented primarily towards educating professionals who will be integrated with the socioeconomic and political structure of a particular context. As a result, the programs should respond to that need: providing curricula that reflect the historically integrated character that both society and the world have.

  • To share experiences that are examples of how rigid borders can be erased through practices of integration, scientific and humanistic culture, academic integration, and the integration between disciplines, which in turn becomes flexible as the new paradigm that identifies social, economic, and cultural realities is created.

  • To provide evidence of the relevance of conducting research in Foreign Languages from an interdisciplinary perspective.
