The School of Education at the University of Texas/TSC in Brownsville is proud to announce the 17th Annual Bi-National Conference for educators in all areas of learning. This event will be held at the Teatro Reforma in Matamoros on Friday night, October 29th and on Saturday, October 30th. Teatro Reforma is located at Calle 6 S/N , Col. Centro, C.P 87300, in Matamoros, Tamaulipas, Mexico and will be transmitted live to UTB/TSC in the building EDBC , room 1.224.
The purpose of this conference is to unite educators from Matamoros Mexico, Brownsville Independent School District, the University of Texas/TSC and the surrounding school districts in order to find ways to help students of all ages maximize their learning potential by exploring topics such as the history of education in both sides of the border, educational technology, the evolution of the teaching profession, research in pedagogy, ethics, the importance of bilingualism, among many other current issues. The successful integration of this knowledge can become the leading factor determining the students’ success.
Students are not encouraged by UTB/TSC to go to Matamoros for safety reasons. Therefore, for the convenience of students from UTB/TSC, as well as teachers and administrators from BISD, the inauguration event and the sessions planned for Saturday October 30 will be transmitted live in EDBC building room 1.224 of UTB/TSC. If students or teachers still want to attend the Matamoros event at their own risk, the directions are provided in the “Directions” section of this website.
We are eager to make this year’s conference a rewarding and worthwhile event for all.
Dr. Elva Cerda Perez, Committee Chair,
Dr. Janet Martinez, Committee Co-Chair, and
