Welcome to this October edition of our IATEFL eBulletin which brings you news and information about upcoming events from our Head Office and Special Interest Groups (SIGs).

In this edition of the eBulletin, 14 of our 16 SIGs share information about their ongoing and upcoming professional development events. Apart from plans for the PCEs in Manchester next year, our SIGs will be bringing you face-to-face and online PD events over the next weeks and months. There are also opportunities for IATEFL members to submit articles to SIG newsletters and journals and to join our conversations on professional matters via our different SIG social network platforms. Read on to find out more about these opportunities.

If you missed our annual Web Conference organised in partnership with the British Council on World Teachers’ Day this year, you can still watch recordings here. And when you have watched the recordings, please leave us your feedback here.

Finally, we would like to thank all our members who took part in the elections of our new Vice President/President. Gabriel Diaz Maggioli will be joining us at PubsCom immediately and will be eventually introducing future editions of the eBulletin.

17 April 2020: PCE Manchester 2020

Please join us on 17 April 2020 for our pre-conference event entitledESOL: 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 pre-conference event 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 in general. We will also explore how publishers, materials writers, and teachers are meeting the increased demand for 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. Please check the IATEFL website for more details about the conference, and how to register.


Call for contributions: please consider submitting articles for our newsletter, send to [email protected]. We want to hear from you!

25-27 Oct: Annual Web Conference

The 2019 YLTSIG Web Conference will take place over three days: 25, 26, 27 October between 14.00 – 22.00 GMT each day. This year’s theme is “Opening the ‘YL’ umbrella: fostering age-appropriate pedagogies in ELT” featuring nine plenaries, two panel discussions, one Q&A session and fifteen talks focused on early years, primary, lower and upper secondary ELT as well as two sponsor showcases. The web conference aims to move away from ‘YL’ as an umbrella term and showcase fresh pedagogies for different age ranges. You can register here for free.

17 April 2020: PCE Manchester 2020

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 pre-conference event 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 can now confirm the line-up of speakers:

  •  Nayr Ibrahim’s opening plenary will set the scene by outlining key current issues in multilingualism in YL ELT
  • 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) to access the curriculum in English as an Additional Language contexts
  • Leketi Makalela’s closing plenary will provide delegates with a focus on translanguaging via a holistic lens to foster connection and solidarity (including the concept of ‘ubuntu’).

We will also have an open space format to provide an interactive opportunity for delegates to reflect on the pre-conference event contents in relation to their own contexts. To provide creative inspiration for the pre-conference event, the venue is Manchester Art Gallery, a very short walk away from the main Manchester Central venue. For more information and to register, please visit the IATEFL Manchester website.

2 Nov 2019: Webinar

LitSIG’s next webinar of 2019 will take place on 2November at 17.00 GMT: “Designing photo essays when reading short stories”. Dr Barbara Roosken from the Netherlands will demonstrate how designing photo essays will improve their creative abilities and may also be used for assessment. This will be a practical session with plenty of examples of good practice. More details here.

In January next year we will host Thom Robb for a webinar. Thom became a member of the LitSIG committee earlier this year. He has long been a committee member of the Extensive Reading Foundation and his webinar will focus on reading material. More details nearer the date.

17 April 2020: PCE Manchester 2020

Our pre-conference event in Manchester, a joint event with the Global Issues SIG, will be on ‘Migrant Narratives in the EFL and ESOL Classroom’.

We will examine migrants’ experiences as narrated in ‘diaspora literature’, works written by authors living outside their native country. As well as written and oral storytelling, we will include other media, such as song and music. Pedagogy will be an important feature: how to bring migrant narratives into the classroom, and how to use migrant narratives to promote intercultural awareness and social inclusion. To this end, we will talk about using and creating materials, and we will suggest techniques suitable for teaching that involve migrant narratives, notably storytelling.

Speakers already confirmed are Jeremy Harmer, David Heathfield, Alan Maley, Judith B. O’Loughlin, Alan Pulverness and Andrew Wright. There will be more! We are also interested in creating opportunities for participants at the pre-conference event to share their experiences: we will update you later on how we intend to do this.

The OLLReN annual conference took place on 28 September. This highly relevant and informative event drew on research into investigating the impact of technology to support language learning. The LTSIG was involved in promoting and moderating the event. There were presentations on fostering resilience and perseverance in young learners with game-based learning, piloting authentic Open Educational Resources (OERs) in MOOCs, language learning in digital contexts, increasing students’ oral practice through collaboration and technology-enhanced peer feedback in the EAP classroom.

All the slides and recordings from the presentations can now be found on the OLLReN conference 2019 website.

Position paper from OUP – exclusive access for ESPSIG members

Oxford University Press has very kindly offered ESPSIG members exclusive access to their upcoming position paper, ‘Global Skills: creating empowered 21st century citizens’. This paper has been researched and developed by OUP’s panel of ELT experts, and provides practical recommendations and advice for teaching global skills (sometimes known as 21st century skills) in the classroom. Given our focus on disseminating good practice in ESP, EAP, and EO/PP, OUP believes the paper would be of great interest to our members, and we have therefore been included in this exclusive pre-release.

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.
