  3. 3. Welcome from the IATEFL President Dear Conference Delegate, Welcome to Harrogate! This is the third time we have held our Annual Conference in this beautiful former spa town in northern England and this year, with additional session rooms and a larger exhibition hall, we hope that your conference experience will be better than ever. As well as an impressive array of plenary speakers including David Graddol, Kathleen Graves, Michael Hoey, Sugata Mitra and Jackie Kay, we’re pleased to be introducing several innovative features. These include an opportunity to ‘Meet the Patron’, Professor David Crystal, and an Open Space event facilitated by Adrian Underhill. They also include an exciting new session format called ‘ELT Conversation’, involving discussion between two leading ELT professionals, Jeremy Harmer and Scott Thornbury, followed by questions from the floor. In addition to this, you also have over 500 sessions including Signature events, talks, workshops, forums, symposiums, poster presentations and early morning ‘How to …’ talks to choose from as well as the IATEFL Jobs Market and a fabulous Exhibition featuring over 50 exhibitors and packed with all the latest ELT books, products, services and resources. This year’s conference evening programme also offers a range of lively and varied events to suit all tastes. By popular request, these include old favourites such as Pecha Kucha, Open Mic and a Quiz evening. They also feature an evening of poetry and other writing in ‘Spoken Word’ and a play, ‘Hard Times for Teachers’. I’d like to extend huge thanks to our IATEFL Head Office staff, led by Glenda Smart, as well as to the Conference Committee, chaired by Eric Baber, and all the numerous volunteers who have made this event happen. Thanks also to the British Council whose partnership enables us to bring the conference to thousands of ELT professionals who will be joining us virtually through Harrogate Online. Whether you’re a first-time delegate or an experienced old-hand, we hope you have a professionally inspiring and highly enjoyable few days – and please remember to complete the feedback form we’ll be sending you at the end of the conference so that we know your views and can continue to make the conference even better next time! -2- Carol Read IATEFL President IATEFL is proud to present its International Ambassadors: Susan Barduhn, Madeleine Du Vivier, Peter Grundy, Jill Hadfield, Jeremy Harmer, Chris Kennedy, Alan Maley, Herbert Puchta, Adrian Underhill, Ron White, Marion Williams and Tessa Woodward These include many former IATEFL Presidents and two long-term members and supporters of IATEFL, Jill Hadfield and Jeremy Harmer, who have kindly taken on the role for 2 years.

Young Learners and Teenagers on Multilingual, multicultural and multilevel classrooms IATEFL Associates’ Day IATEFL has 120 Associate Members. An Associate is another Teacher Organisation (TA) that has entered into a manually beneficial relationship with IATEFL. A benefit of becoming an Associate lies in linking up to a network of international TAs, and through this, a network of language educators from all over the world and from a range of diverse backgrounds and nationalities. The Associates’ Day on 1st April was a chance for representatives of these TAs to get together and discuss matters of common concern. One of the overarching aims of most TAs is to build professional communities. We thank our sponsor, Cambridge English (Cambridge University Press & Cambridge English Language Assessment). -4-

You must keep your cloakroom ticket if you wish to redeposit your item on the same day at no further cost (for example, if you collect your coat at lunch time and wish to put it back in the cloakroom in the afternoon). IATEFL jobs market Now in its fifth year, the IATEFL Jobs Market offers a unique space where top ELT employers can find and recruit highly-qualified teachers and ELT professionals from around the world. Whether you are actively looking for a new role or simply just want to see what’s out there, the IATEFL Jobs Market is the perfect place to start. Jobseekers can review current vacancies from a range of employers, discuss a career or location move with company representatives, submit formal applications, and have interviews onsite during the conference. Visit us in Hall D to explore the latest opportunities. To mark our 5th anniversary the Jobs Market is sponsoring a Signature Event on Wednesday at 1710 in King’s A: ELT Training and Recruitment in the Digital Age. This is a panel discussion event which is open to all delegates. For more information please see pages 13 and 85.

  19. 19. General information Your feedback Your feedback on this conference will be a great help in planning next year’s conference. We would be grateful if you could complete a short survey to let us know what to keep and what to change. We will email a link to the online survey to all delegates at the end of the conference. All completed feedback entries received by Friday 18th April will be entered into a draw for a free registration for the next IATEFL conference in Manchester in 2015 (prize not transferable to another conference). General ‚ Please turn your mobile phone/cell phone to silent during sessions. ‚ Since 2007, smoking is prohibited inside all buildings in the UK. ‚ We regret that no responsibility can be taken by IATEFL for the loss of personal belongings or for accidents. Important Programme note This Conference Programme contains full information on the academic sessions. This information replaces the provisional Preview of Presentations listed in the Preview Brochure that was available online earlier this year. The information contained in the Preview Brochure is no longer current. Programme changes and cancellations Changes made to the programme after the printing of this Conference Programme will be displayed on notice boards located in the Level 4 Foyer. Please check the presentation message boards frequently for last-minute changes and cancellations. Session timings We are pleased to offer a programme of over 500 sessions. However, to enable the smooth running and prompt start times of all sessions, speakers and delegates must vacate session rooms immediately at each session end time. IATEFL and the venue require time between sessions to change the set-up in rooms, delegates must be allowed to reach their next session on time, and the next speaker in the room needs time to set up. Thank you for your cooperation. Interactive Language Fair Introduced in Harrogate 2010, this is our 5th Interactive Language Fair, taking place on Friday from 1335 to 1535 in King’s A. This is an event not to miss ... and is the conference format of the future! 19 presenters race through thumbnail outlines of presentations on a wide variety of topics and then invite you to explore their interests with them. The presenters will have individual tables and participants can then join them to discuss their presentation in more detail. The presenters will use posters, realia, handouts and a wide range of interactive computer and paper-based materials. A feast of presentations in a single two-hour interactive format. Tribute session The tribute session is an opportunity to remember colleagues who've 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 Thursday 3rd April from 1710 to 1815 in Hall Qa. -9- -9-
  20. 20. General information Open Space event Thursday 1405-1635 in King’s A. Developed in the 90s and employed both in management and academic spheres, Open Space is a new format to the IATEFL conference this year. A mini-conference in itself, Open Space gives you the chance not only to flag up and explore the topics that matter to you, but also to discover a new conference tool for use elsewhere in your professional life. Facilitated by Adrian Underhill, participants will be invited to convene a session on whatever is professionally significant or important to them at that moment. The whole point is to come without notes or preparation and work with what fires you up at that time. After a brief introduction to the Open Space format, those who wish to will write their proposed topic(s) on post-it notes and read them out. Then by a show of hands a number of parallel sessions are immediately formed, allocated a meeting space, and participants go to the one of their choice. Afterwards in plenary the convenors feed back to the rest of the group, and then a second round of new sessions begins, either growing out of a previous session or starting afresh. Again people go to their preference, and a plenary sharing follows. The convener can lead a session if they wish, or simply host a session, which might be an exchange of views, a collecting of ideas, a new idea, a sounding off… Whatever it is, the other participants will know and have chosen to attend. This Open Space lasts for 2½ hours which includes an overview of the methodology; setting up the first round of sessions; conducting them; feedback to all; setting up and conducting the second round of sessions, feedback and close. It is set to be the talk of Harrogate 2014. Because of the nature of the event, it is important to join the session from the beginning and stay until the end in order to appreciate how it develops and contribute to it. In order to preserve the integrity of this complete 'conference within a conference' it won't be possible to enter after it has begun. So, come prepared to talk about the latest (or the oldest) burning issues for you in ELT – be that the future of mobile learning, the flipped classroom or teaching the phonetics of ELF, etc. – and leave having acquired new contacts, new perspectives and a new ELT conference methodology! British Council / IATEFL ‘Harrogate Online’ Online coverage of the 2014 Annual IATEFL Conference We aim to make the conference accessible to a large global community of teachers and educators, both members and non-members, through Harrogate Online. Remote delegates will be able to watch live video sessions and recorded highlights of the conference on the Harrogate Online website. Online delegates will also be able to participate in discussion forums linked to the main conference themes and interact with conference presenters via the website. Harrogate Online will also feature video interviews with conference presenters and at-venue delegates, who will share their thoughts and experiences with the online community. As coming to the conference in person isn't possible for all members, we hope that Harrogate Online will be a very good alternative for those unable to attend. This initiative started at the 2007 Annual Conference and is brought about by collaboration between IATEFL and the British Council in line with our aim of linking, developing and supporting ELT professionals worldwide. Our sincere thanks go to the British Council for providing the infrastructure and human resources as well as the generous support without which this initiative would not be possible. How you can get involved By either accessing the web via the Internet Centre or the conference Wi-Fi, do consider playing an active part in the day-to-day proceedings by sharing photos, tweets (#IATEFL) or your reflections if you have a blog of your own; get involved with the forums, especially if you have a special interest dear to your heart. Last year, over 80,000 teachers watched our online conference coverage. This year we hope that remote participants will get involved via the Harrogate Online website or other social media channels. A number of Associates offer the chance to attend a local event around the online conference with a teacher training focus. We look forward to offing all our remote delegates a chance to follow the conference online. We hope you join in with IATEFL Harrogate Online to share your ideas on the IATEFL Harrogate Conference with teachers from all over the world and be a part of one of the biggest online events for teachers of English. Join in and follow all the action as it happens at http://iatefl.britishcouncil.org/2014 Please note that no other filming of sessions is allowed. -10- -10-
  21. 21. General information Hornby scholar alumni presentations 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, set up in 1961. This was a far-sighted and generous initiative whereby a large proportion of Hornby's income was set aside 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. The Hornby scholars this year will present How assessment influences the classroom teaching and learning of English. Research over several decades into the test washback and impact agrees that the content and format of English language assessment may influence classroom English teaching and learning in complex ways. This talk will investigate how English language learning is assessed in schools in countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America. It will discuss the influence of assessment on classroom teaching and learning, examine common factors and differences between the countries, and propose how assessment practices might be best used to promote learning in these contexts.

  23. 23. General information Signature events The signature events are hosted by major ELT institutions and publishers. They are designed to showcase expertise and throw light on state-of-the-art thinking in a key area which is relevant to the particular institution or publisher. The signature events provide a unique opportunity for delegates to find out about upcoming trends, learn about new areas of research, and engage with well-known, international experts in exciting and often controversial topics. The signature events vary in format and include talks, panel discussions and debates. There are five signature events during the conference: BRITISH COUNCIL SIGNATURE EVENT English Medium Instruction: Cure or Curse? Panellists: Jennifer Jenkins (University of Southampton, UK), Naz Rassool (University of Reading, UK), Y.L. Teresa Ting (University of Calabria, Italy) Eddie Williams (Bangor University, UK) Facilitator: John Knagg (British Council) While English Medium Instruction (EMI) in education systems has been the norm in former British colonies for many years, recent years have seen large growth in EMI in many other countries around the world. Universities from Italy to Indonesia, from Rwanda to Kazakhstan, rush to teach more and more courses in English medium, driven by the desire to recruit international students and to prepare home students for an international future. At school level EMI is popular not only in the traditional private sector, but is finding its way into public educational systems. What are the driving forces behind this? Is this trend inevitable in the long-term, and a good thing? When is EMI appropriate and how can it be made successful? Who are the winners and the losers, in terms of people and languages? This session will surface some political and educational issues and controversies, drawing on the views of an expert panel, with ample time for contributions from the floor. (See page 66) IATEFL JOBS MARKET SIGNATURE EVENT ELT Recruitment and Training in the Digital Age Moderator: Nik Peachy (Learning Technology Consultant, Writer, Trainer) Panellists: Aisha Walker (University of Leeds, MA in TESOL and ICT Programme Director) Pete Sharma (Pete Sharma Associates) Wayne Jones (Director, Academic Bridge Programme, Zayed University UAE) Julian Kenny (Head of Teacher Development, Trinity College London) Mark Simpson (Business Development Director, Immerse Learning [formerly Language Lab]) Digital and online material has become an essential part of the ELT mix and publishers invest millions to introduce ever more sophisticated ways of taking learning in new directions. There are real benefits to this, but are we in danger of ignoring a very important person in the room: the teacher? More to the point, are we investing in the right amount of training, not only to help teachers understand new technology but, crucially, to ensure digital materials support rather than distract from the fundamental process of English language learning? In this panel discussion with leading specialists in this area, we will address these questions and more. We’ll explore how the age of digital ELT is affecting the skills and capabilities employers need when recruiting new staff… and look to the horizon to assess how technology will continue to change teaching and learning in the future. (See page 85) -13- -13-
  24. 24. General information ELTJ / IATEFL SIGNATURE EVENT The motion: Primary ELT does more harm than good To propose the motion: Fiona Copland (Aston University, UK) To oppose: Janet Enever (Umeå University, Sweden) Chair: Graham Hall (ELT Journal) The ongoing expansion of English language teaching into the primary sector has been a notable feature of ELT in recent years. Is it now time to call a halt to this trend and prevent any further damage to our children? Our two speakers will debate the issues surrounding primary level ELT. Please come along, have your say, ask questions - and join in the vote! (See page 99) CAMBRIDGE ENGLISH SIGNATURE EVENT Bringing Learning Oriented Assessment into the ELT Classroom Speakers: Nick Saville (Director, Research Validation, Cambridge English Language Assessment) Miranda Hamilton (Consultant, Cambridge English Language Assessment) Stephanie Dimond-Bayir (Teacher Training Programmes Manager, Bell International) Barkan Tekdogan (Head of English Department, Terakki Foundation Middle School, Turkey) Learning Oriented Assessment seeks to maximise the value of the formative and summative feedback which classroom learning and testing tasks can generate. It helps teachers to target instruction and monitor progress, and learners to set goals and manage their progress towards achieving them. It is a framework for achieving measurably better learning. But how will LOA work in practice in the ELT classroom? In this session our panel will discuss the issues which might be encountered when introducing a learning oriented approach to assessment and the positive effect it can have on students’ progress if implemented effectively. (See page 99) PEARSON SIGNATURE EVENT Test Teach Test What tools do teachers currently have at their fingertips to be able to objectively and accurately measure a student’s level of English? How can teachers identify what they need to focus on in order to help students make progress? How can they test their students again using the same standard assessment to see the impact of their teaching on students’ progression? Currently, teachers often use self-prepared tests that they need to create and grade themselves, which is very time intensive and difficult to replicate. The alternative is to use practice tests from internationally recognised tests which are not self-scoring, or for students to take high-stakes tests, which is not a cost-effective solution to use solely as a progress measure, or informative about remediation. In this session, David Hill, item writer for Progress, Pearson’s new and innovative all skills test, and Antonia Clare, author of Speakout, will discuss the merits of using an automated testing tool like Progress to objectively and accurately assess students’ competence and progress across a given course. They will look at how teachers can use the results from this test and apply them in a classroom setting with a coursebook to inform teaching and learning and improve learning outcomes.

This is my morning job; I teach English in the evening.’ In effective teaching, three things play a crucial role: the teacher’s voice, body language, and presence. These factors come together powerfully in dramatic techniques in which language is activated in memorable ways. This performance will show these principles in action. The presenters perform satirical sketches originally written and performed in collaboration with students. The sketches are about everyday topics, including language teaching, and are designed to teach and entertain. We will also perform a short one-act play, Me and Him, about how walls go up and how walls come down. All of the pieces provide opportunities for engaging learners, promoting second language acquisition and raising issues for discussion. ‘A performance which tackled contemporary problems in an innovative way and which was universally applauded’ ELT News, Greece ‘Loved it! Very inspiring!’ Teacher, TESOL Arabia David Gibson Luke Prodromou - http://davenluke.wordpress.com Guest appearance: Maria Sachpazian Luke Prodromou is sponsored by ELI Publishing British Council-hosted evening From 1900 in The Royal Hall Join the British Council for an exciting evening in the elegant surroundings of The Royal Hall, a stunning Edwardian Theatre built in 1903.
