About the Conference

The Conference

The Exhibition

The IATEFL Conference is a four-day event with over 500 sessions which takes place in the UK every year. In 2020 it will run from Saturday 18 April to Tuesday 21 April. The conference brings together ELT professionals from around the world to discuss, reflect on and develop their ideas. 14 Pre-Conference Events (PCEs), organised by our Special Interest Groups (SIGs) will take place on Friday 17 April.

The Exhibition is a lively centre for delegates to discover the latest products, services and trends in EFL. With a fantastic mix of exhibitors, special areas including the internet station and catering facilities, it is always a fun and exciting aspect of the conference. The Exhibition will be open on each day of the conference, is also open to members of the public, and is free to enter.

The Venue Our venue for 2020 is Manchester Central, a wonderful space converted from a former railway station. This is where all the action takes place, including: the registration desk, Exhibition, Careers Fair, plenary hall and all the presentations. You can find out more about Manchester itself by visiting www.visitmanchester. com.

Plenary Sessions

Educational inclusion - is it possible? The myths, challenges and realities with Marie Delaney, Saturday 18 April at 09.00 Inclusion is a popular concept now in education in many countries. Many governments are following policies of educational inclusion for all, particularly for students with special educational needs. This presents challenges and opportunities for language institutions and for teachers. This talk will look at some of these challenges, some of the myths around inclusion and some of the possible ways forward. Issues covered will include: • Why does inclusion matter – morally? Professionally? Personally? • What does inclusion mean in your school and community? Who should be included? Who isn’t included? Is it a process or a place? Thinking beyond students with special educational needs. • Access to education vs. engagement in education – what are the real barriers? Poverty? Privilege? Entitlement? Attitude? Resources? Training? • The gap between policy and practice – is inclusion the ‘cheap’ option? What can teachers, trainers and managers do? How do we avoid only paying lip-service to inclusion? • The need for self-awareness and self-reflection – recognizing our unconscious biases and limitations. • The power of language as a tool for inclusion and exclusion: the important role of language teachers and language hierarchies • Moving from the teacher as the ‘expert’ to the teacher as a cooperative partner with the student and family. Marie Delaney is a teacher trainer, educational psychotherapist, author and director of The Learning Harbour, Cork, Ireland. She worked for many years with students of all ages with challenging behaviour and other special educational needs, both in mainstream and special educational settings. She has taught English and trained teachers in many countries across the world. She is one of the writers of the British Council’s online course for teachers in special educational needs and the Language for Resilience report on the language needs of refugees. She is the author of Attachment for Teachers, Teaching the Unteachable and What can I do with the kid who... (Worth Publishing UK) and Into the Classroom: Special Educational Needs (OUP). Her main interests are engaging those students who seem unreachable, supporting teachers in dealing with challenge, and creating truly inclusive classrooms.

Integrating teaching, testing and technology: where angels fear to tread with Thom Kiddle, Sunday 19 April at 09.00 This plenary presentation will address the areas of language teaching, testing, and digital technology, with the language teacher at the centre of the interaction between the three. We will ask and suggest answers to the questions of whether we are measuring the right things when

10


There will be a particular focus on the assessment of spoken English, and we will address the question of whether inter-language mediation may be a better and more useful benchmark of linguistic competence than the traditional measurement of oral proficiency in English. With practical experiments, special guests, and insights from research and from learners, the session will entertain, challenge and engage participants to re-examine their assumptions and beliefs, and propose how we can take principled decisions, and avoid being the fools who rush in. Thom Kiddle has been a language teacher, tester and teacher trainer since 1997, though his involvement in teaching started much earlier in a very different arena! He was awarded the Cambridge Delta prize in 2004 as the first person to achieve a distinction in all modules of the Delta, and the IELTS Caroline Clapham award in 2011 for his MA dissertation on Language Testing. He is currently Director of Norwich Institute for Language Education (NILE), involved in teacher training, organisational management and strategic development projects worldwide, including the NILE Online teacher development programmes. He is also Vice Chair of Eaquals and founding director of AQUEDUTO (the Association for Quality Education and Training Online).

Plenary Sessions

we test students’ language; whether we are measuring in the best ways; why teachers mistrust tests and examinations; and how developments in digital technology are impacting on both classroom-based assessment and the world of international high-stakes language testing. The empowerment of teachers in terms of decision-making, competences, and confidence will be the central theme in an exploration of teacher fears and expectations of how teaching relates to testing, and whether digital technology offers solutions or threats for the classroom and beyond.

ELT in underserved contexts: empowering young learners through life skills with Sameh Marzouki, Monday 20 April at 09.00 In a dramatically changing world, the gap between privileged schools and underserved ones is expanding to the point where the process of education and its outcomes are incomparable. My talk is going to unpack those divides, starting from the conditions of schools and the materials used, to the methods and strategies adopted to keep learners engaged and motivated. Using authentic photos and videos from my 15 years of experience in low-resource contexts, I’ll demonstrate how we collaboratively transformed underserved schools in deplorable conditions into well-equipped, comfortable spaces where learning could occur in a non-threatening environment and where a quality education could motivate learners to acquire a wide range of life skills and implement them in different contexts. I’ll specifically focus on how teaching life skills improves the well-being of underprivileged children and promotes a positive mindset and healthy behaviour, as well as how they enhance the socialization processing of learners, who move from being able to act collaboratively to promoting their communicative and problem-solving skills. Teaching life skills helps both teacher and learners to build resolution and take positive steps towards changing conditions, rather than giving in to complaining, discontent, or resentment. While this transformation is particularly dramatic in hardship conditions, the skills are equally useful for learners and teachers worldwide, and I hope you’ll leave the plenary session full of ideas to benefit your own learners and the enthusiasm to carry them out.

Embedding a culture of empathy in English language teaching with Kieran Donaghy, Tuesday 21 April at 09.00 Over recent years, empathy has become something of a buzzword. Numerous articles have argued that empathy in individuals is essential to healthy social and emotional functioning, and contributes to the enrichment of civic society and education. However, the concept of empathy, which is a complex construct, is usually not defined clearly and is rarely discussed in depth. In this plenary, we will start by exploring what empathy is, its neurological foundations, and its three main components: cognitive empathy, affective empathy and empathetic concern. I will draw on general education literature to present what research findings suggest about the role of empathy in education. I will then draw on language education literature and research to support my argument that empathy is particularly important in language education. I will propose that in contemporary language classrooms, which focus on communicative competence, cultural diversity and the centrality of social interactions, positive teacher-learner and learner-learner relationships and positive group dynamics are vital. We will try to determine whether there is an empathy deficit in language teaching and look at hindering factors which may make it challenging to embed a culture of empathy in the profession. Moving from theory to practice, we will explore how we could explicitly develop empathy as a skill among learners, teachers, teacher trainers and researchers. We will explore how a variety of techniques and approaches from diverse sources such as cognitive behavioural therapy, humanistic education, the Slow Education movement, literature, drama and the visual arts can be used to help to embed a culture of empathy in language education. In sum, this talk aims to show that empathy is central to successful language learning and to making language teaching a more compassionate and fairer profession. Kieran Donaghy is a freelance writer, conference speaker and trainer. He was a full-time classroom teacher for 30 years and now trains teachers at The School for Training, his small specialist teacher development institute in Barcelona. He also writes books for students and teachers of English as a foreign language. He is the author, co-author and co-editor of several books on the use of images in language education including, Film in Action, How to Write Film and Video Activities and The Image in English Language Teaching. His materials website Film English has won a British Council ELTons Award, the MEDEA Award and an English-Speaking Union Award. Kieran is the founder of the Image Conference and the co-founder of the Visual Arts Circle. He was awarded fellowship of the Royal Society of Arts in 2017.

IATEFL’S Annual General Meeting (AGM) We invite all IATEFL members to attend the AGM. It will take place on Sunday 19 April from 1300 to 1400. The agenda will be available on the Key Documents page of the IATEFL website, when logged in as a member, nearer the time.

Hornby scholars The name of A.S. Hornby is highly regarded in the ELT world, not only through his publications and ideas on teaching methods but also through the work of the A.S. Hornby Educational Trust. This was a far-sighted and generous initiative to improve the teaching and learning of English as a foreign language, chiefly by providing grants to enable English teachers from overseas to come to Britain for professional training. Owing to the generous support that the Hornby Trust has afforded IATEFL over the years, we continue the tradition of featuring this year’s Hornby Scholars within our conference programme. They will be presenting: Promoting multilingualism while teaching English in the Global South on Saturday 18 April. The discussion will be facilitated by Martin Lamb, University of Leeds, UK.

ELT Journal Debate This house believes that the job of the English teacher is to teach English rather than values

Is this your first IATEFL Conference? If you have not attend an IATEFL Conference before, you are invited to visit the IATEFL stand in the Exhibition during the morning break on Saturday 18 April. Come along to meet with other first timers and start some new friendships!

Tribute session This is an opportunity for you to remember colleagues who have died during the year since the last conference. If you’ve lost a colleague or former colleague, you’ll have an opportunity to say a few words in their memory and, if you wish, to bring along a memento (book, teaching materials, etc.). Or you may just want to come to the session to hear about colleagues who are no longer with us, and perhaps to add any memories you may have. The Tribute Session will take place on Sunday 19 April.

Sunday 19 April We live in a bitterly divided world with polarised opinion over issues of crucial importance to individuals, societies and the planet. Identity, nationalism, religion, sexual orientation, ethnic differences, the origin of life, environmental protection and climate change are all contested areas. Teachers, like other people, often have strong views on these issues; they also have a platform to express these views, and a more or less captive audience. The debate will consider if, and to what degree, teachers and other educators (materials, curriculum designers and so forth) should use their position to promote their own values. Our two speakers will debate the issues surrounding teaching values in ELT. Please come along and join the debate. Speakers: Guy Cook and Melanie Cooke

British Council Saturday 18 April

Developing expertise through experience: exploring teacher narratives for professional development

According to Prabhu (1987), teachers form their ideas of what works or doesn’t work in the classroom by interpreting information through the unique lens of their experiences, values and beliefs. This results in the development of a set of intuitions about teaching which Prabhu called a ‘teacher’s sense of plausibility’. In light of this, a recent British Council publication, Developing expertise through experience, collects together the stories of 20 professionals worldwide and invites them to explicitly examine what has influenced them and how those influences have had an impact on their teaching practices and choices. Join us in this event, where we invite Alan Maley, the editor of the book, and five of the contributors to look at how teachers can develop the ability to analyse their own influences, challenge their assumptions and enhance their pedagogical repertoire. We will also explore how to incorporate this experiential component into teacher development programmes. Speakers: Alan Maley (The C group, UK); Fauzia Shamim (Ziauddin University, Pakistan); Claudia Ferradas (NILE - Norwich Institute for Language Education, Argentina); Shelagh Rixon (University of Leicester, UK); Jane Spiro (Oxford Brookes University, UK); Harry Kuchah Kuchah (University of Leeds, UK).

How to teach one:one (with Rachel Appleby) This session will look at ‘threes’ in three key areas: strategies to run dynamic one:one classes, ways of responding on-the-spot to changing student needs, and how to provide meaningful and varied language practice during class time. It’ll be suitable for those new to one:one teaching, as well as those with experience. How to teach online (with Andy Johnson) An increasing number of teachers are moving into online teaching, but for many it still feels a bit daunting. In this presentation, you’ll hear about three key areas: 1) the main differences between face-to-face and online teaching; 2) strategies for delivering effective online lessons (both pedagogically and technologically); 3) tips on becoming a successful online trainer. How to write CVs that get results (with Peter Panayotou) This presentation provides a blueprint for the perfect CV. It includes a simple, step-by-step guide with advice on how to present your skills and experience in the best possible way and a list of dos and don’ts to avoid all the classic mistakes. How to decide what to do after your TEFL Certificate (with Will Nash, University of Sheffield) You’ve recently qualified in TEFL, and may have a first job teaching. What next? The next few years can shape your future and there are lots of choices of jobs, professional development and further qualifications. Come along to this talk to find out what those choices might be and how to maximise your early career prospects.

Evening Events A full and varied programme of events is being arranged for delegates to relax and meet new people during the evenings of the conference. Details of the exact times and venues of these events will be available nearer the time but for now, here are provisional details of what we have planned.

Additional Sessions and Events

Additional Sessions and Events

Saturday- Monday (days to be confirmed) The epic history of Manchester Writer, guide and broadcaster, Jonathan Schofield, will inform and amaze you with an engaging talk full of fascinating facts about this most significant of cities.

International Quiz (sponsored by Express Publishing)

The popular quiz is back again! A multimedia extravaganza under the management of Gavin Dudeney. You’ll need a global team (you can come along and join one on the night!) with diverse interests and knowledge, a sense of humour and a desire to meet new people, have some fun, network and work together to score more points than any other team. Music, fun... maybe a drink or two and the chance to be crowned quiz champions of Manchester 2020.

Music Night (sponsored by Express Publishing)

Come and sing, play and entertain at a beautiful international evening of music. Anyone with performance-ready material can join in and offer a song or two, depending on demand. This ever-popular event is a wonderful opportunity to relax, enjoy music and songs in English or any other language, and join colleagues from around the world. Email smount222@gmail.com and tell us what you would like to do. But hurry! Space is limited!

Pecha Kucha

Originating from the word “chitchat”, a Japanese term describing the sound of conversation, we again offer you a Pecha Kucha evening. Each speaker is allowed a slideshow of 20 images, each shown for 20 seconds, giving a total presentation time of six minutes and forty seconds before the next speaker is up, keeping presentations concise and fast-paced. It promises to be as exciting as ever so don’t miss it!

Sharing stories

This evening, why not relax and simply listen to stories or tell a few yourself if you feel like it? By stories we mean myths and legends from your own culture or anecdotes from your life experiences. David Heathfield and Andrew Wright will be telling a few stories themselves and, new this year, Mario Rinvolucri will be leading a 20-minute session on listening to stories rather than telling them. We are sure it will be another lovely evening of story sharing. ‘People forget things but not stories. Into even the simplest story they learn to pour their understanding of each other and of the world around them.’ Brian Patten ‘I gave peace to the bereft and the forsaken, merriment to the meek. I gave hope to ragged men who had no lord: Will you hear me? For those that will, your hearth will not be lonely.’ Widsith the Gleeman

The C Group - creativity for change in language education general meeting

We will be meeting to report on what has been done since last year in Liverpool and to discuss possible initiatives for the coming year. We will also present the group, its goals and current activities. Existing C Group members are asked to contribute actively. If you are not a C group member, come anyway and find out more about the group. All are welcome!

This year’s scholarship sponsors We would like to say a very big thank you to all of this year’s scholarship sponsors. Without your generous contributions and support, these scholarships would not be possible.

If you would like to make a contribution to an IATEFL sponsored scholarship, you can do so though our online Donation Form at any time.

Conference Scholarships

Each year IATEFL offers a range of conference scholarships to enable teachers, trainers and other ELT professionals the opportunity to attend the IATEFL Annual Conference.

The Scholarship Process... Each year, a month or so after the previous Conference, we open up the IATEFL Scholarship process to ELT professionals across the world. The applications are open for 6 weeks, in which time around 1000 applications are submitted. Once the deadline has passed, the applications are sent to the Scholarship Committee and divided amongst various reading panels chosen by the scholarship sponsors. It can take about 6 weeks for every application to be carefully considered and the winners to be chosen. Once every panel has reached a decision, each applicant is emailed to let them know the results of the panels’ deliberations before the winners are officially announced on the Conference website. If you have any questions about the Scholarship process, please contact conference@iatefl. org. Someone from the Scholarship Committee will also be available on the ‘IATEFL Stand in the Exhibition during coffee and lunch breaks to answer any questions you may have. So whether you are a current or past scholar, or a potential applicant or sponsor, do come along for a chat.

About 2020’s Pre-Conference Events Business English Stepping Outside Our Comfort Zone Business English is often described as an “umbrella term” that covers a wide range of communication skills, teaching contexts and disciplines. Learners’ needs often differ widely, as do the approaches used by teachers and trainers, who may come from very diverse backgrounds and have different levels of experience. This means that as business English trainers we are often confronted with the requirement to step outside our own comfort zones and develop new training activities in order to meet our learners’ or our clients’ specific needs. These activities will typically range from task-based approaches, which focus on simulating real world business communication, to more language-based approaches which focus on areas like contextspecific lexis or pronunciation.

IATEFL member

This pre-conference event aims at bringing together business English professionals who are interested in exploring a wide range of business English training activities. The day will begin with three sessions led by experienced practitioners who will explore advantages and disadvantages of various approaches and different types of business English training activities. After a lunch break, attendees will take part in a swap shop where they will have the opportunity to share ideas which they have developed themselves. The swap shop will be split across different tables, with each table focussing on a specific theme - needs analysis activities, vocabulary and lexis building, intercultural perspectives, business English as a lingua franca (BELF), replicating the “real-world” of business English, soft skills, online resources and promoting learner autonomy.


ESOL ESOL - Sidelined No More The field of ESOL is growing exponentially as is the global human crisis of forced displacement and migration. ESOL teachers, many of whom are volunteers, are having to navigate the complexities of this crisis head on. Our PCE day will look at how we are training ESOL teachers, especially volunteer teachers, to ensure that they are equipped with the tools and techniques necessary to be able to address their learners’ multidimensional needs. We will also examine the role that ESOL has in the field of English language teaching. Traditionally ESOL has been viewed as playing a minor part; however, with the increase in demand for ESOL classrooms, teachers, and relevant materials ESOL is now seen as having a significant role to play at the intersection of education, migration and integration policies. The need for pedagogies and materials that reflect the reality of learners’ lives is greater than ever. The day will be a combination of examining policy issues and practical ideas for the classroom. Join us to look at how we can move ESOL forwards and make a difference both in terms of practice and policy.

English for Specific Purposes ESP in the World of Tomorrow: Academic and Professional Perspectives The world in which we are living, studying, teaching and researching is constantly evolving. This is particularly true for the field of English for Specific Purposes (ESP), where there are constant changes in the professional context upon which our ESP input is based. This means that the methodology and activities we employ to meet the specific needs of our learners must also evolve to be We would like to thank

sure of achieving the status quo. In order to examine this issue further, our PCE theme this year considers the field of ESP and the changes, opportunities and challenges it may face in the future from two main perspectives: - ESP in tertiary level education contexts - ESP in professional contexts.

Global Issues and Literature Migrant Narratives in the EFL and ESOL Classroom In our joint PCE, we want to address a phenomenon which is an ever more pressing part of our contemporary world: migration. Alan Pulverness: ‘Deprived of history’: films and novels in third places The talk will explore the immigrant experience, both literally and as a metaphor for the experience of the language learner. Varinder Ulu: A better life? Varinder wasn’t a migrant through choice. It was her parents who made that decision for her. In her talk she will look at the events which lead her father to move away from his homeland and go through the struggles of a migrant in order to provide his children with better opportunities. Andrew Wright: Graphic design, illustration and migrant stories Some migrants want to keep their stories private but many are ready to share their stories and poems within the group and within society. Effectively, it is publishing and the teacher from being the sole reader becomes the consultant and editor. Aiden Yeh: The stories they don’t tell: Documenting modern diaspora using digital storytelling and (im)migrants’ narratives By learning how to create powerful digital narratives, we are empowering our students to take part in changing perceptions and changing lives, including their own.

David Heathfield: “Everything is lost. Why is this happening to me?” Creative storytelling for resilience, empathy and change. The old folk tales give us knowledge about how to face the unknown and are therefore ideal for engaging with challenging topics. Judith B. O’Loughlin: From trauma to resilience: the power of stories Resilience isn’t a specific program, but a process. Helping students develop resilience connects teachers to learners, including newcomers and other at-risk students with limited and/or interrupted formal education. Alan Maley: Migration: language and silence Alan will remind us of the ubiquity of human migration and the multiplicity of groups which have moved since the beginnings of human history. Jeremy Harmer: Migrant music Singers have always written about the experience of migration, but how useful is such music for us as teachers of English? How appropriate, then, are other kinds of songs for language teaching: songs of migration, songs about immigrants and immigration etc?

neurodiverse learners for assessments? This PCE explores these crucial and intriguing questions and brings together researchers, exam writers, classroom teachers and exam boards to share their expertise and good practice. It also offers us all a chance to learn from one another how to apply some of these in our own contexts. The programme can be found on both the IP&SEN SIG website and the TEASIG website.

Leadership and Management Engagement - a New Model of Management and Leadership Employee engagement has become the top issue on the minds of many leaders in ELT, pointing towards an entirely new model of management and leadership. But what does employee engagement even mean? What do these new models look like? How can they be known, shaped and implemented? And once implemented in the institution how do we measure engagement and set benchmarks. and perhaps even “kitemarks”, to follow, and promote our institution as an employer of first choice. This PCE day for LAMSIG investigates these issues and provides a forum for discussion, understanding and action. It will allow managers and leaders to hear from sector experts who have experience of building institutions where passion is valued and staff are proactive about adding value in their work while aligning with the institution’s mission and goals. Specific questions to address: • How can we raise the level of personal investment staff bring to work every day? • What are the qualities we want to develop in engaged staff? How can these qualities be promoted, rewarded and valued? • What can LTO leaders do to create a positive environment where decision making and


Learner Autonomy Defining and Contextualizing Language Learner Autonomy: Theory and Practice There seems to be a growing tendency for ‘autonomy’ and ‘autonomous’ to be used without much awareness of their history in language teaching theory and practice. The 2020 PCE will address this issue. Our plenary speaker, David Little, of Trinity College Dublin, will define language learner autonomy for the 21st century, explaining where his definition comes from, how it is supported by empirically grounded theory, and what it implies for language teaching and learning, whether in classrooms, self-access centres or online learning environments. The remainder of the day will explore the challenges that this definition is likely to pose in different educational contexts and geographical locations. An interactive poster session will provide opportunities to find out about learner autonomy projects in different countries; a workshop will introduce tried and tested approaches to motivating and empowering learners of all ages, from all backgrounds and at all proficiency levels; and a world café will give participants a chance to discuss possible solutions to the challenges they face in their particular context. We’re looking forward to interactive discussions and to generating new ideas with you in Manchester.

Learning Technologies 2020 Vision into Artificial Intelligence Artificial Intelligence (AI) – machines designed to act “smart” – has become ubiquitous in many aspects of our daily lives. From smartphone assistants such as Siri, to spam filters in our email, to smart sensors that help us take better photos, AI is all around us. One sector where AI promises to make big changes is education; and while the human presence of teachers is irreplaceable, experts believe there will be many changes to learning and teaching. The LTSIG would like to invite you to join us for a day focused on AI in language education. Throughout the day we will look at what AI is, what can be done now with AI and what the next ten years or so look like from here. The day promises to offer a mix of theory and practice from various industry perspectives, and of course a fantastic chance to network with like-minded individuals. As always, we will take a critical look at the technology and make informed and pedagogically sound suggestions on the way forward. If you would like to take a glimpse of AI’s present and future seen through (almost) 20/20 vision, don’t hesitate to join us. Hope to see you there!

needs. Jill Hadfield: Covert syllabuses: How to avoid them, how to include them Covert syllabuses – the unintentional messages that materials contain – usually have negative associations. However, positive covert syllabuses can also be created within an overt language learning syllabus. Helen Holwill & Jemma Hillyer: Rejuvenate your manuscript submission toolkit In this fast-moving and practical presentation, we will help you to hand over clear, complete, efficiently presented manuscripts. We will also help you to avoid unnecessary work! John Hughes: 50 ways to avoid gap-fill fatigue A gap-fill is the first exercise a teacher ever learns to write. And as writers, we fill our materials with them. But why do we write them? Can we write them more effectively? And how do we avoid gap-fill fatigue? Colin Morton: Bring your ideas to life using mood boards A mood board is a quick and easy way to find inspiration, explore themes and organise ideas. In this session we’ll find out how to create one, helping you visualise your ideas for a project, spark new ones, or resolve a creative block. Rachael Roberts: Strategies to survive overwhelm Plenty of work is a nice problem to have, but not if you’re stressed out of your head. In this talk I will help you deal with stress by changing your mindset, and by giving practical tips that can help you to be more productive without sacrificing your personal life. Robert Campbell & Ben Goldstein: Starting with an image As materials writers, we often start with an idea and then try to find the right artwork or photo to enhance it. However, whether it’s an image to accompany an exercise or a ‘high impact’ visual, using the image as a starting point can take us in new, unexpected directions. Practical tips will be offered on how to do this.

Pronunciation Pron-tech collaborations: the Role of Technology in the Pronunciation Classroom Technology has the potential to be a great ally in our lessons, so how can we optimise its use when teaching pronunciation, and avoid possible pitfalls? With easier access to mobile devices, the internet and a range of apps, learners (and teachers alike) may find it rather challenging to make wise choices when they want to study English, and more specifically, when they need to improve their pronunciation. With such a wide range, how can we choose what is aligned with learners’ needs and help them achieve their objectives more effectively? Moreover, when selecting tech resources to be used in our lessons, how do we make sure they are actually going to add value to the learning experience? How can we ensure the use is pedagogically sound, and not mere entertainment? Throughout the day in our Pre-Conference Event, participants will be invited to look into ways in which they can make the most of what is available in terms of tech resources – including podcasts, apps, and online tools to name a few – and critically analyse their relevance and applicability to help improve learners’ pronunciation in English. Participants will be invited to share their experiences within their own unique teaching contexts, to help develop this into a productive learning experience for all. You are welcome to bring your own device to join us in our PCE! Let’s discuss ideas and share good practices with colleagues from across the globe!


Teacher Development

The Role of Research in English Language Teaching and Teacher Education

Outside the Hub: Exploring Underdog Forms of TD

The IATEFL ReSIG PCE 2020 brings together researchers, language teachers and teacher educators who are interested in the role of research in English language teaching and teacher education. The event has two strands. While Strand A focuses on research in language teaching as part of developing research-related pedagogical competences in school or university classroom settings, Strand B considers research in the context of formal teacher education, highlights practices around research in various teacher education programs, and considers the role of research in continuing professional development. The PCE aims to explore these topics in-depth. The PCE starts with Strand A, with the plenary by Sarah Mercer on ELT research followed by poster presenters. In the afternoon, after the plenary talk by Maggie Kubanyiova on research in teacher education, presenters deliver their posters on the same topic.

Typically, when our profession thinks of development opportunities, we often default to certification courses, post-graduate programs, and conferences. Without question, these can be valuable modes for a teacher to develop professionally. However, they can have barriers to access that are out of our control. Additionally, these formalised approaches may leave participant contexts largely out of the equation or be organised from a more top-down perspective.

In this PCE, we seek to highlight the ‘underdog’ alternative forms of teacher development: those that utilise a localised approach to methodology, focus on teacher-driven needs, and create sustainable impact on curricula, attitudes, or practices. Key questions we aim to address: What teacher-driven approaches to TD are our community doing already that provide accessible alternatives to formalised training?

Research

How do we create or adapt TD initiatives through a local lens? What impacts do these alternative forms of TD on us that perhaps differ from more traditional approaches to TD?

Teacher Training and Education Trends in Teacher Training: The needs of trainers in different contexts TTEdSIG invites trainers from around the world to a day filled with engaging topics on current trends in teacher training, as we aim to help trainers apply new insights into the particular needs and constraints of their training contexts.

Stannard and Briony Beaven. Our remarkable line of speakers will share their knowledge, experience and thoughts with the teacher trainers and educators. Our PCE participants will be able to discuss pertinent issues such as dealing with the training needs of experienced teachers, training in-service teachers to help with the skill development of new generations (or address the needs of new generations) and how to best meet the needs of pre-service teacher candidates in general and/or in particular whose first language is not English.

Young Learners and Teenagers Sharing Languages: Celebrating Children’s and Teenagers’ Multilingualism in ELT Please note, this PCE is being held at Manchester Art Gallery, Mosley Street, Manchester, M2 3JL. Delegates are required to register at Manchester Central before making their way to the PCE venue. The IATEFL Manchester 2020 Young Learners and Teenagers SIG Pre-Conference Event will explore children’s and teenagers’ multilingualism in ELT from a variety of sociolinguistic, cognitive and affective perspectives. The day-long event will unpack ways children and teenagers develop and manage their multiple languages, consider the benefits of multilingualism for ELT and identify classroom strategies to value children’s and teenagers’ linguistic repertoires. The 2020 PCE aims to help YL ELT professionals to move from a ‘monolingual’ to a ‘multilingual’ mindset by being inclusive of linguistic diversity in the YL classroom and ultimately, by celebrating the rich skills of multilingual children and teenagers. We are thrilled to confirm the inspiring line up of speakers:

• Nayr Ibrahim’s opening plenary will set the scene by outlining key current issues in multilingualism in YL ELT

42

• Lijuan Shi’s keynote talk will share

classroom-based examples of translanguaging in early years settings

• Hamish Chalmers’ keynote talk will

explore ways children can create linguistic landscapes at primary school, particularly those learning in multilingual environments

• Constant Leung’s keynote talk will

demonstrate how teenagers’ languages are included (as well as to what extent) in order to access the curriculum in English as Additional Language (EAL) contexts

• Leketi Makalela’s closing plenary will

provide delegates with a fascinating focus on translanguaging via a holistic lens to foster connection and solidarity (including the powerful concept of ‘ubuntu’) Following the three keynote talks, we will have an open space format to provide an interactive opportunity for delegates to explore and reflect on the PCE contents in relation to their own YL ELT contexts.


Poster presentations

The poster presentations will be on display throughout the conference. A dedicated 10-minute slot will be programmed each day for poster presenters to be at their poster to discuss it with delegates and to answer any questions.

From the speaker proposals submitted for the conference, each SIG chooses presentations related to their SIG area. These presentations make a ‘SIG Showcase’ within the programme. If you are interested in a particular SIG area, you have the opportunity to follow this track of selected sessions throughout the day. One session in each SIG Showcase is the SIG’s Open Forum.
