The Border Learning Conference (BLC) is a program of practical teaching demonstrations, round-table discussions, and forums that address issues of learning along the border. Professional educators and administrators involved with issues of teaching and learning along the border bring their concerns and expertise to this continuing, dynamic program now in its 17th year. This year’s theme will discuss “Opportunities and Challenges of Educating Students in a Liminal Place” and includes a keynote address by Dr. Keith A. Erekson, followed by Crossing Borders Award Winner Cynthia Horton, director of the Paso del Norte Center of Hope, a local organization that works to protect the victims of human-trafficking and helps lead anti-trafficking efforts in the Paso Del Norte region through outreach, education, and victim-centered services. We hope to see you there!
