WELCOME TO 2012 FAAPI CONFERENCE

Dear Colleagues
APIZALS would like to welcome you all to FAAPI 2012. This annual conference has represented a great challenge and at some points an unattainable dream. However, here we are, once more, with a shared aim: Our professional development. We have designed a high- quality agenda under which you will have the opportunity to meet excellent national and international speakers in the field of research on autonomy and motivation. We are sure you will return home with fresh ideas and renewed energy. Working in the name of those who were true to their ideals has provided us with boundless strength to keep going. Indeed, THEY have been the ones to guide us along this difficult path. It has been a very difficult year for the ELT community and particularly for FAAPI. It is impossible not to remember our president, Daniel Fernndez. When we started planning the conference in the south and pooling ideas about the main theme, his generous professional advice was of fundamental importance. He suggested options, clarified concepts and provided warm support. Knowing that he would no longer be with us was a tremendous shock. Nevertheless, we knew that it was not the moment to give up. The whole FAAPI Committee encouraged us to continue steering this boat. We would like to thank the FAAPI and scientific committees, our presenters, and sponsors and all the community of San Martn de los Andes. We would also like to express our gratitude to Cristina Mayol, our president in-office, for supporting us unconditionally. Thanks to each of you that contributed to make this dream come true. Hope you enjoy being here, in our beautiful town, surrounded by friends, colleagues and the whole ELT community. The Organising Committee

Profesora ANA MARA ARMENDRIZ (1950-2012)


Ana Mara, Ana for all of us, was also a beautiful mind. A graduate from Instituto Superior del Profesorado Dr. Joaqun V.Gonzlez, where she later held different tenure chairs. She excelled as a teacher in Grammar, Linguistics, Methodology, Applied Linguistics and Curriculum Design. She fell ill in December 2011 and left for Eternity on February, 9th 2012. A dedicated teacher, a warm person to everybody, almost obsessively devoted to correcting with attention to detail, her students always admired her smart matching clothes. They remember her as a nice, outgoing teacher, quick for intelligent confrontation, who challenged her students to think. With high professional standards, she left her indelible mark on the whole country through her post as Coordinator of the Foreign Languages team for the National Reform in the nineties, a tenure position, where she was a leading voice for teachers, teacher educator and administrators. She devoted her life, her stamina, and perhaps her health to this endeavor. She travelled around the country creating networks of teachers, either in person or by email. She was an indefatigable scholar, who wrote innumerable documents, which constituted a landmark in the teaching and learning of Foreign and aboriginal Languages in this country. Ana Mara had a distinguished scholarly career, and could build bridges between theorists and practitioners from her professional standpoint. The best tribute to Ana will be a heart-felt decision for professional development on our part, for quality in education,for perfection. She was a perfectionist herself, a real illuminator for her students, able to instill the scientific spirit in each of them. Of strong personality and determined as a Basque descendant, she might be telling us the following:

IN MEMORIAM
Dr. DANIEL JOS FERNNDEZ (1954 2012)
It should not be hard to attempt to write about the significance an undisputed giant in the field of ELT has had in his community, bearing in mind the countless contributions he made in Argentina and abroad. What makes it difficult is to put in black and white such an account, without signs of emotion. Daniel Fernndez was born in Santa F, where he generously participated in many public and community services; he graduated as a teacher of English at the history-laden Profesorado de Paran. Throughout his esteemed professional lifetime and career, he obtained different degrees as a specialist in Didactics of Foreign Languages, M.A. in Applied Linguistics at Durham University and Doctor in Language Sciences at Universidad Nacional de Crdoba, Argentina. A recognized scholar, he was a member of multiple associations and bodies devoted to FLs in this country and abroad, like Nucleo PELSE as an example. A research fellow, a beautiful mind, he was a full time member of faculty at Universidad Nacional del Litoral, where he played a leading role as head of the Centro de Idiomas, head of the on-line Journal INDICE among others. As a national leader in research, policy, and practice in Language Teacher Education and Foreign Languages, he was highly respected by his peers throughout the nation and abroad. He embodied all of the values and commitments of a good teacher. He was reelected as President of FAAPI on March,31st 2012 but unfortunately he passed away on May, 9th. A great loss for FAAPI and the community of English teachers, indeed. Far beyond his further studies and laurels was Daniel Fernndez, the human being, a loving husband, father and grandfather, and a dear friend. All of us will remember him for his generosity,his humble attitude, his way with people, his attitude to sharing, his eternal smile, his enthusiasm and passion for teaching, and definitely, for learning. At the moment of his untimely death, he was beginning a postdoctoral programme. At FAAPI he will be honoured as a revered teacher and mentor of many colleagues. He will be missed, and remembered with great fondness for his dedication, integrity and collegiality. Daniel, as APIZALS wrote, you WILL be in FAAPI 2012. His lively attitude and outlook on life makes one recall some lines from a poem by Henry Scott Holland (1847-1918), which run:

When you awaken in the mornings hush I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circling flight. I am the soft star-shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there; I did not die. Mary Elizabeth Frye (1932) Prof. Cristina Emilia Mayol, M.A. - FAAPI President

Adriana Alvarez (1951- 2012)


Adriana was born in La Plata and attended primary and secondary school there, at Escuela Normal N.2. She graduated as an English Language and Literature teacher from Universidad Nacional de La Plata, where she also began her teaching career. She moved to General Roca and it was in 1984 when she started work at Universidad Nacional Comahue. It would be this same institution which would, years later, grant her an MA in Linguistics. For more than 25 years she was a teacher trainer deeply committed to the professional development of future teachers. At Universidad Nacional del Comahue she occupied varied and numerous postsDirector of Escuela Superior de Idiomas, Research Secretary, Director of the Masters in Linguistics- showing a sustained and admirable professionalism. Her contributions to the field of ELT both on Methodology and Language Acquisition were invaluable. Her liveliness, warmth and passion for the profession were some traits of her outstanding personality. She was an extremely generous and supportive colleague, a loyal friend and a passionate teacher trainer. Adriana will be missed by all her workmates, she will be missed at professional meetings but above all, she will be missed as having been a GREAT human being.

Call me by my old familiar name, Speak to me in the easy way you always used. Put no difference in your tone, Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Prof. Cristina Emilia Mayol, M.A. - FAAPI President

PLENARY SESSIONS
Plenary 001
Ushioda, Ema (University of Warwick) with the support of the British Council Plenary 1 - Motivation: Is L2 learning a special case? Motivation is widely recognized as a variable of importance in the L2 learning process and as a key factor that distinguishes first language acquisition from second language acquisition. Put simply, while motivation is not really an issue in the case of infants acquiring their mother tongue, being motivated or not can make all the difference to how willingly and successfully people learn other languages later in life. Yet motivation is similarly critical to all forms of conscious and intentional human learning and has been a major pedagogical and research issue across the field of education. A question we might therefore ask is whether L2 learning represents a special case in the psychology of learning motivation, giving rise to distinctive motivation theories and concepts specific to this domain of learning; or whether L2 motivation can broadly be explained in terms of general theories of learning motivation. As I will explore in this talk, the answer to this question has changed over the years, and tracing these changes offers a useful framework for examining past, current and future theoretical and research perspectives on L2 motivation.

Thursday 20th 18:00 19:00 Opening Plenary Gimnasio Escuela 134

Plenary 002
Little, David (Trinity College Dublin, Ireland) sponsored by APIZALS Plenary 1: Two views of learner autonomy and their implications for applied linguistics research It is generally agreed that autonomous learners take charge of their own learning. There are, however, two distinct views of what this implies for autonomy in L2 education. One view is chiefly concerned with learner self-management; it implies a theory of formal learning in general but has little to say about the relation between learner autonomy and the development of L2 proficiency. The other view also equates autonomy with agency the individuals capacity to make choices and act upon them but it argues that L2 learner autonomy is a matter of channelling the learners agency through the target language from the very beginning. This implies a theory of L2 learning that coincides with the recent social turn in theories of L2 acquisition. My presentation will summarize both views of learner autonomy and the kinds of research they invite, and will argue that only the second view and the research it stimulates are likely to make a significant different to L2 learning outcomes.

Thursday 20th 19:00 20:00 Gimnasio Escuela 134

Plenary 003
Lpez Barrios, Mario (Facultad de Lenguas - Universidad Nacional de Crdoba) sponsored by APIZALS Research in Foreign Language Learning and Teaching: Engaging, Inspiring, Empowering FAAPI Conferences over the last decade have witnessed a significant growth in EFL teaching and learning related research in Argentina. From its beginnings as a teacher development seminar gathering less than one hundred participants and with master classes by renowned local and foreign specialists, the FAAPI Conference turned into a massive event where, apart from plenary presentations by keynote speakers, local teacherresearchers take the floor to make their research accessible to colleagues. Who are these researchers and where do they work? What types of research do they carry out? What research topics are the most frequent ones? Have these changed over the years? My presentation will explore these questions in the belief that research is engaging, inspiring and empowering - both for those who produce it as well as for those who consume its outcomes.

Friday 21st 09:00 10:00 Gimnasio Escuela 134

Plenary 004
Ushioda, Ema (University of Warwick) with the support of the British Council Plenary 2 - Motivating the person rather than the L2 learner As my first plenary will conclude, current thinking emphasizes the importance of self and identity concepts in the analysis of L2 motivation, and in particular, the need to consider how L2 motivation fits within a persons overall motivational self-systems and current and future self-representations. This entails a shift in conceptual focus from abstract L2 learners to a more holistic perspective on real persons, with particular identities, personalities and histories, situated in particular sociocultural contexts. As I will highlight in this Friday 21st 15:00 16:00 Gimnasio Escuela 134

Page 21

talk, this shift in focus has significant implications for classroom practice. To date, theory and research on L2 motivation have yielded generalizable models and strategies for motivating certain types of L2 learners, but have not helped teachers deal with the complex and uniquely individual people in their classrooms. I will discuss in practical terms what motivating the person rather than the L2 learner means, in light of current theorizing. However, in doing so, I will also make the case that good language teachers have long known the importance of motivating the person and found ways of doing so, and that it is motivation theory that has lagged behind effective classroom practice in this regard.

Plenary 005
Wilkinson, Susan sponsored by Canadian Embassy - APIZALS / Ferradas Claudia, with the support of the British Council - APIZALS Motivating intercultural readers: classroom experiences on the work of Susan Wilkinson In this session, author Susan Wilkinson will be interviewed by Claudia Ferradas and will read from her works about Argentina. Intercultural classroom experiences based on those texts will be presented, focusing on how students were motivated to look critically at their own reality while learning the vocabulary which empowered them to express their own meanings in English. Saturday 22nd 09:30 10:30 Gimnasio Escuela 134

Plenary 006
Little, David (Trinity College Dublin, Ireland) sponsored by APIZALS Plenary 2: Language learner autonomy in practice: dynamic, tools, activities and research This presentation will focus on classroom practice that is informed by the second of the two views of learner autonomy explored in my first plenary. It will begin by describing an interactional dynamic calculated to support the development of learner autonomy as an integral part of the learners target language proficiency. Then, with particular reference to general language learning at lower secondary level, it will explain how simple tools and learning activities can be used to launch and maintain this dynamic. It will also suggest ways of adapting the approach described to the needs of other educational levels. The presentation will argue that in the autonomy classroom teachers are co-learners and learners are co-researchers, and will conclude by proposing that the key role played by documentation of the learning process provides a powerful stimulus to action research.

SEMI-PLENARY SESSIONS
Semi-Plenary 001
Ingraham, Nissa sponsored by Fulbright Motivating the 3.0 ELL Student This 60 minute presentationwill center on current research being ensued in the ELL field. Topics to be discussed include increasing student motivation through professional development for pre-service and current mainstream teachers in the field. Another research area touching on intrinsic motivation of ELL students will be research on student preference of perceived nationality of ELL teachers. This will be bolstered by the concept of ethnolinguistic vitality in the school setting. Friday 21st 10:40 12:10 Gimnasio Escuela 134

Semi-Plenary 003
Banegas, Dario sponsored by APIZALS Motivation and Autonomy through CLIL. A collaborative undertaking In this presentation I describe and discuss how motivation and autonomy emerged from a research project which focused on developing language-driven CLIL through collaborative action research at a secondary school in Chubut. During one school year, three teachers and their students engaged in infusing content in their EFL lessons. By developing context-responsive CLIL didactic transposition, teachers and students explored how their motivation and autonomy improved by negotiating contents, sources of input and activities.

Saturday 22nd 11:30 12:30 Gimnasio Escuela 134

Semi-Plenary 004
Allan, Dave Director NILE sponsored by NILE - APIZALS Managing to motivate: what makes language education professionals work better? This session will explore some of the key factors underlying effective performance by professional practitioners involved in the field of language education. Since the time when I researched the motivational factors involved in foreign language learning as a postgraduate in Cambridge, I have been fascinated by what makes people tick, what makes individuals and groups give of their best in particular contexts both in the shorter and the longer term. I have been fortunate in having the chance not only to research how things like effective leadership and team building can have dramatic impact in fields apparently as far removed from the world of language teaching as trade unions and professional football, but also to explore the reality of how particular policies, processes, attitudes and actions work out in practice in the context of managing an organisation that has had direct contact with over 30,000 teachers from some 60 different countries and from widely varying cultures. While there may be no universally valid answers to the questions I have posed, there are undoubtedly key principles which should underpin how we behave with the people we want to enable to do their best, some of which are perhaps surprising in the light of widely accepted beliefs in the literature of management in professional contexts.

PANELS
Panel 001
ESP English for specific purposes The state of the art at university level Moderator: Aguilar, Mara Elena sponsored by APIZALS Panel Members: Montemayor-Borsinger, Ann / Zuain, Silvia / Tavella, Gabriela - sponsored by APIZALS In this panel we will present different perspectives concerning the state of the art in the teaching of English for Specific Purposes. The issues dealt with will give us a general panorama of the main topics that worry ESP teachers today. Each panelist will have a 15 minute presentation on different aspects related to the field: academic discourse approach, motivation, integrated skills and the use of new technologies in ESP. After the presentations there will be ten minutes for questions from the audience. Thursday 20th 10:00 11:30 Cotesma Sala Auditorio

Panel 002
ICT - Information and Communications Technologies ICT in the classroom: motivator or distractor? Moderator: Dr. Claudia Ferradas, with the support of the British Council - APIZALS Panel Members: Chrobak, Erika / Garca, Aurelia / Zuain, Silvia - sponsored by APIZALS In this panel we will discuss the impact of ICT on literacy in general and foreign language learning in particular. It is believed that a technology-rich lesson will be more motivating than one which does not rely on ICT. But is technology a motivator per se? Or does its contribution to learning depend on content and pedagogic strategies? Are students developing multiliteracies and multitasking skills or just being lured by attractive (and expensive!) distractors? Thursday 20th 14:00 15:30 Cotesma Sala Auditorio

Panel 003
Language Policies Panel Discussion Teacher education, language policies, autonomy and motivation: Do they meet? Moderator: Corradi, Leonor with the support of the British Council - APIZALS Panel Members: Liruso, Susana / Dr. Masullo, Pascual Jos / Prsico de Stadler, Mnica - sponsored by APIZALS Motivation and autonomy are central themes in ELT. Even though they do not form part of the main issues at play in the field of teacher education, connections exist between them, which can be seen in the number of people who want to take up teaching, among other examples. This panel will address this topic, presenting different cases related to the policies implemented at this level.

Friday 21st 10:40 12:10 Teatro San Jos

Panel 004
CLIL - Content and Language Integrated Learning To what extent is CLIL an innovation to promote motivation? Moderator: Banegas, Daro Luis sponsored by APIZALS Panel Members: Bell, Paula / Renart, Laura / Rettaroli, Silvia - sponsored by APIZALS In this panel we will discuss the links between CLIL and motivation. First, we will share personal explorations based on CLIL. Second, we will react to different quotes from a recent paper presentation at IATEFL which raised controversial issues about motivation and innovation in CLIL. Third, the panel members will answer the title-question of this panel discussion before a general conclusion. Last, there will be room for questions from the audience.

PAPERS
Paper 001
Martino, Mara Gabriela Gender differences: do they matter at school? Over the past years, many ELT experts have tried to find explanations for pupils differential success. There are also calls for learning opportunities to be differentiated in the classroom, to match the pupils needs. Experts on education and gender claim that students success is influenced by innate and socio-cultural gender differences and urge us to raise the awareness of gender within the classroom, coed or single-gender, and bring best practice into the classroom for boys and girls. Friday 21st 10:30 11:10 Escuela del Sol Room 1

Paper 003
Azua, Marcela Moodling the students moods Blended learning through Moodle gives teachers the opportunity to cope with their students ambivalent moods. The digital natives who crowd and sparkle the classrooms look for spaces to show their tech abilities and their imagination. Moodle is a learning platform with resources which may foster enthusiasm and participation. Webquests, portfolios, glossaries, wikis and built-in web 2.0 activities give teachers the tools to engage students and give them the chance to show and share. Friday 21st 10:30 11:10 Escuela del Sol Room 3

Paper 004
Barbero, Melina Developing reading skills at university level: how to make the most of texts The development of reading skills at university levels has proven to be of paramount importance for the successful future professional. This presentation has a two-fold purpose: on the one hand, to show the results of action research carried out at a medical college and on the other hand, to provide the audience with some learning/teaching strategies which may help learners make the most of the texts.

Placci, Graciela / Barbeito, Mara C. / Valsecchi, Mara I. Eap students motivation to learn english: what do they believe in? Motivation is important when learning a foreign language. An exploratory study was conducted with students in two EAP reading classes in the fields of Humanities and Exact Sciences in order to: a) explore whether these students were motivated to learn English, and b) find out whether and how motivation in the two groups compared. This presentation will describe the process of creating the scale developed for our study, the methodology used and the results obtained. Pedagogical implications will be presented Friday 21st 10:30 11:10 Escuela del Sol Room 6

Paper 007
Dalla Costa, Natalia / Gava, Ileana / Gonzalez De Gatti, Marcela / Kofman, Gustavo Towards learner autonomy in EFL academic writing: peer feedback and self-monitoring The objectives of this investigation are to assess whether the use of specific social/affective and metacognitive strategies for EFL academic writing, namely cooperation through peer-feedback, and self-monitoring, leads to changes in students self-perceptions. The results showed that social/affective and metacognitive strategy training lead to improved performance on EFL academic writing and greater learner autonomy. This study concludes with limitations, pedagogical implications and avenues for further research. Friday 21st 10:30 11:10 Escuela del Sol Room 7

Paper 008
Tuero, Susana / Gonzlez, Mara Paz Lexical cohesion: its use in expository and narrative texts by advanced EFL students A research study was carried out to examine whether the rhetorical type of text determines the use of lexical cohesion and the semantic-lexical relations used in each case. An analysis of the data collected will be presented and the conclusions will be discussed. The presentation will end with a discussion of the pedagogical implications of the findings: how raising students awareness as regards the use of lexical cohesion in academic writing can promote autonomous learning. Friday 21st 10:30 11:10 Escuela del Sol Room 8

Paper 009
Grant, Alastair An autonomy open to debate: dogme as sustainable educational development For over ten years, Dogme ELT has been a hotly debated approach. What has been completely overlooked, however, is that it is this debate itself which is changing the way we teach today. We will focus on how the Dogme debate has produced the only process approach we have in ELT; an approach able to evolve with the needs of both students and teachers, motivating the students to teach each other and become more autonomous. Friday 21st 10:30 11:10 Escuela del Sol Room 9

Paper 010
Walsh, Mara Cecilia / Duarte, Paula L1-L2 read right: motivating the huge leap - On how EFL might (de)motivate literacy development This presentation focuses mainly on the literacy development of young learners in bilingual educational programmes, exploring the potential drawbacks to the simultaneous acquisition of skills in L1 and L2 students might encounter. The fundamental role played by motivation and fostering literate environments will be described. Metacognitive strategies will also be addressed as a key to enhancing progress and engaging learners positively as active agents of their own learning experience in the English classroom and beyond. Friday 21st 11:20 12:00 Escuela del Sol Room 1

Paper 011
Omar De Temperini, Myriam Meeting the needs of EFL learners is crucial for motivation This presentation will analyse the validity of Abraham Maslows position in the learning process of English as a Foreign Language (EFL). It will show that only those learners whose needs are met are able to reach the following higher category in Maslows Hierarchy of Needs, becoming in this process self-motivated independent learners (Gross Davis, 1999). Friday 21st 11:20 12:00 Escuela del Sol Room 2

Paper 012
Portilla, Maringeles English and special needs: a possible marriage that breeds autonomy This presentation introduces projects that have been carried out in different state primary schools in the City of Buenos Aires from 2010 to date.

Paper 013
Perez De Pereyra, Alicia / Aguilar, Norma / Belmonte, Andrea / Tossi, Cecilia / Lauria De Gentile, Patricia The study of macrostructure as a way to develop student autonomy in the reading of research articles In academic discourse, the Hypothetical-Real Pattern is a recurrent binary relation existing between what is known which constitutes the Real component and what is not known, is controversial or could be defined as hearsay or simply as reported which constitutes the Hypothetical component. We will refer to how the application of a macrostructural approach to reading has enhanced our students reading capacity in a discerning mode and contributed to their becoming autonomous readers.

Paper 015
Valenti, Viviana Helping young learners to learn grammar and become autonomous - A Theoretical Foundation How could we adapt our techniques so that our young students can learn grammar and become autonomous? This paper will present and analyze the way in which 8, 9 or 10 year old students think and generate linguistic knowledge with the ultimate aim of discussing an approach to teaching that respects such characteristics and, thus, optimizes the possibilities of helping students become autonomous since an early age. Friday 21st 11:20 12:00 Escuela del Sol Room 6

Paper 016
Kofman, Gustavo / Gonzlez De Gatti, Marcela / Dalla Costa, Natalia / Gava, Ileana Towards leaner autonomy in EFL academic writing: teacher feedback and student self-correction strategies The main objective of this study was to assess the impact of different types of teacher feedback on student self-correction and rethink classroom practices to enhance learner autonomy. The discussion focuses on the analysis of students perceptions in light of their preferences regarding explicit indirect feedback and minimal indirect feedback (Ferris, 2006). Results demonstrate that most students valued opportunities for the enhancement of learner autonomy, which will be used to improve the ways in which specific types of feedback may facilitate increasing self-sufficiency in writing.

Paper 018
Regueira, Ana La / Caielli, Elisabet / Williams, Jenifer / Berardo, Liliana When academic literacy is taken for granted The paper discusses autonomy in relation to learners who enter the ELT academic world to pursue higher education studies. To become part of this academic culture, learners are expected to adopt new values and behaviours. Among other things, students have to adapt their nature as readers to become members of a new discourse community. The paper delves into how the lack of academic literacy affects learners autonomy and, therefore, hinders progress in higher education. Friday 21st 11:20 12:00 Escuela del Sol Room 9

Orta Gonzlez, Dolores / Cardozo, Andrs Exploring the motivation of students entering teacher and translator-training courses at university level The issue of motivation has been in the light of debate in recent decades. Although the concept of motivation has not always been clear, different kinds have been proposed, with the purpose of finding ways to improve L2 learning. This session aims at shedding light upon the role of motivation in L2 learning at a high academic level, where students face an unfamiliar environment which requires a completely different level of commitment.

Castro, Silvia / Manzur, Graciela / Atienza, Ana / Arrabal, Myriam Interactive narratives as a means to develop motivation, autonomy and sociocultural comprehension in pedagogical experiences Many scholars, such as Prince (2011), contend that narratives can foster motivation and autonomy. In the digital era, narratives are also constructed through cyberspace. Thus, interactive narrative is deemed meaningful in education. This paper, based on a blended learning course addressed to teachers of English, aims to promote reflection upon the influence that constructing and de(re)constructing our own and others narratives may have on autonomous and engaging pedagogical experiences as well as on our worldviews.
