Keynote: Ricardo Romero [British Council]
Equality, Diversity and Inclusions: From the teaching practice to the Colombian reality.
The presenter will introduce a possible model for the implementation of issues relating to equality, diversity and inclusion, three themes already included in the Colombian Constitution, but whose practical implementation is not made clear, paradoxically, in the educational setting. Some possible implementation challenges will be presented for the audience to discuss.
