This year for the first time we will be hosting a virtual Policy Dialogue alongside the face to face conference in Delhi 18-20 November 2009. We hope to reach a wider audience, who will be able to follow the conference, in India and internationally, via the internet. We also hope that delegates and speakers will take part in the online event by interacting with each other and the online audience. English for Progress online goes live on 1 November.
There will be four official bloggers who will be covering the conference by posting to these pages. They will be writing on the sessions and their impressions of the conference. Our bloggers would love to read your comments, so check out their posts and write something back! You only need to input your name and email address to leave a comment.
The Third Policy Dialogue aims to highlight challenges and reveal best practices in English language teaching and learning that can benefit the education system, teachers and learners in India and Sri Lanka. The dialogue will feature the launch of ‘English Next: India’, which is being published by the British Council and written by David Graddol, a well-known U.K. writer, broadcaster and lecturer. The publication will highlight the status and issues in English language education in India. Read more on this and previous Policy Dialogues.
