WELCOME FROM THE PRESIDENT


Dear fellow NileTESOL members, colleagues, and conference attendees, It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the 18th annual NileTESOL conference under the theme of Navigating a Way Forward: Innovating and E-novating in TESOL. Putting together and managing a conference of this magnitude does not happen without inspired leadership, collegial cooperation from members of many institutions, both here in Egypt and abroad, and the dedication of many volunteer NileTESOL members serving on the conference organizing committee and in various capacities throughout the conference itself. This years Conference Co-Chairs, Mariah Fairley and Amira Salama, have done an admirable job of initiating and coordinating these diverse efforts. It is their unflagging dedication and efforts behind the scenes for the past year which are responsible for the splendid conference we are inaugurating today. The School of Continuing Education of AUC also plays a pivotal role in co-sponsoring the conference and without their logistical and financial support, we would not be able to hold this conference in such a beautiful and spacious venue. I would like to acknowledge the key role played by Hanan Fares, Director of the Career Development Department at SCE, for her constant involvement in preparations for the conference and her seemingly effortless resolution of matters both large and small. NileTESOL wishes to extend our deepest gratitude to our partners and sponsors in the endeavor of providing outstanding professional development opportunities to all those here in Egypt engaged with us in the field of English language teaching and teaching through the medium of English: the British Council, the American Regional English Language Office, International Language Bookshop , Middle East Publishing, Unlimited Press , the University of Cambridge, Oxford University Press, Nahdet Misr: Cambridge University Press, IDP Education IELTS, Leaders for Publishing and Distribution, Macmillan Egypt, Sphinx: Pearson Education, Nahdet Misr: Scholastic, and AMIDEAST. One of the most valuable aspects of an international conference is the opportunity to network with colleagues from around the world and to peruse the latest materials and services available from our sponsors and participating publishers. Do make time to stop by the many booths to see everything on offer. The next two days will hopefully encourage all of us to take on new challenges in our teaching, to investigate and perhaps adopt new technology, and to reflect on the complex pedagogical and social roles we fill each day. We have a stellar line-up of six distinguished invited plenary and featured speakers who will lead us in exploring the conference theme and I invite you to attend each of their presentations: Adrian Holliday, Deborah Healey, Hanan Khalifa, Nicky Hockly, Loubna Yousef, and Hend Khalil. Beyond the presentations from our invited speakers, I also encourage each of you to attend a sampling of the various formats on offer at this conference, whether it be a 20X20 presentation, a poster session, a publisher presentation, the assessment colloquium featuring a panel discussion, or a concurrent session or workshop by one of our own NileTESOL members. The diversity of formats will provide models for new ways of presenting that you may be able to incorporate into your own teaching or into your next workshop or presentation to colleagues. On behalf of the NileTESOL Board of Directors and the 2014 Conference Organizing Committee, I wish you an excellent conference experience and I am looking forward to interacting with many of you on a personal basis throughout the conference. Marilyn Plumlee NileTESOL President, 2013-2014

WELCOME FROM THE CONFERENCE CO-CHAIRS


Dear colleagues, fellow NileTESOL members and conference attendees, It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to the NileTESOL Conference 2014! Set against the backdrop of a country in the process of forging a new identity, we stand in gratitude for this opportunity to pay tribute to an attitude to which we in the field of education all aspire. This attitude is the attitude of learning. Egyptians, like the citizens of many other nations, are struggling to navigate their way in forming a healthier identity that all can embrace. This struggle may look jumbled, overwhelming and even chaotic at times, as a cacophony of voices collide, debating the definitions of justice, community, kindness, freedom, unity and other important principles. However, in viewing it from a different perspective, these voices are also the voices of innovation and change. Perhaps this struggle is simply what learning looks like and in that sense it is also exciting, inspiring and full of promise. Real learning is usually a messy process, involving toil and conflict as we struggle to expand our views to make room for new ideas; moving one step forward and three steps back, before finally moving five steps ahead again. Perhaps the yardstick of success in navigating our way forward is not necessarily how far we have come, but in the extent to which we employ an attitude of learning along the way. We as TESOL professionals are also navigating our way, grappling with an overwhelming (and ever-increasing) array of theories, methodologies, activities and tools available to us. The goal is always to build on, to improve, to make better. Yet, this is no easy task. We have to read, think, observe, try out, reflect, make changes and try out again. We may scrap new ideas entirely and go back to older ones that work better. We may suddenly realize that a completely new frame of reference is required. We innovate. We e-novate! Like Egyptians, we forge ahead with a determination to achieve our goals, adapting to our current surroundings in new and creative ways. All of these changes could not happen without a willingness to learn, to let new ideas in, to humble ourselves, to put in effort. Thus our identity as professionals evolves and is enriched proportionally to our attitude of learning. On behalf of the organizing committee, we are pleased to invite you to celebrate with us some of the outcomes of this attitude of learning. We have an exciting and diverse menu for this years conference, including distinguished plenary and featured speakers, panel discussions, 20x20 presentations, concurrent presentations and workshops, a testing colloquium, and for the first time ever at NileTESOL, a poster session event. Please join us in exploring and participating in what the NileTESOL 2014 Conference has to offer this year. It is only through your valuable participation that the conference is such a success every year. Wishing you a wonderful conference experience. Happy innovating and e-novating! Mariah Fairley & Amira Salama NileTESOL Conference Co-chairs, 2014

PLENARY SPEAKERS DR. ADRIAN HOLLIDAY


What is new: Understanding what language learners bring with them January 28th Bassily Hall (Conference Center) 10:00 am This paper will explore why language learners everywhere may take so easily to elearning possibilities, but that even if this option is not available, we need to understand the human potential which is there anyway. I will explore how a new paradigm in the nature of culture indicates the massive potential contribution of home cultural realities for exploring the world and engaging with English.

DR. HANAN KHALIFA


Teaching reading skills or designing a reading test: What you need to know January 28th Bassily Hall (Conference Center) 2:00 pm In this plenary, I will take the audience through a journey of how views of the teaching and testing of L2 reading have changed over the last 50 years and what the latest trends bring to its teaching and assessment. Next, I will share a cognitive processing model of reading which shows the different mental processes that students go through in a reading classroom. In doing so, I will discuss aspects of cognition that differentiates between skilled and unskilled readers and will illustrate how readers at varying proficiency levels use different reading techniques. I will conclude by giving practical advice on developing tasks to assess students reading ability.

DR. DEBORAH HEALEY


Gamification: Communicating with "Digital Natives" January 29th Bassily Hall (Conference Center) 9:00 am Today's "digital natives" have grown up with the excitement and engagement of video and computer games. "Gamification" - using game elements to motivate and persuade - is moving into teaching. While games have long been part of language pedagogy, teachers can benefit from using gamification to connect to today's learners.

DR. LOUBNA YOUSSEF


TESOL: A way forward; English on the Nile: Same or different? January 29th Bassily Hall (Conference Center) 2:00 pm What is our purpose in teaching English in Egypt today? What are we educating our students for? At a time when the computer and mobile phones are facts of life, and communication via the Internet takes place in a femtosecond, the curricula of teaching English requires radical revision. The teaching of English to Egyptians needs to reflect the changes in society and address what linguists call mother language interference.

FEATURED SPEAKERS NICKY HOCKLY


Innovation in TESOL: Digital literacies January 28th CC P007 4:00 pm Digital literacies, the skills needed to effectively interact with digital technologies, are key 21st century skills, and are increasingly important in educational curricula. What exactly are these literacies, and where might they have a place in the English language classroom? We look at some of the theory underpinning digital literacies, and also at some practical classroom activities for teachers to try out with their own students in the EFL classroom.

DR. HEND KHALIL


Mobile learning: E-novating teaching tools January 29th CC P022 1:00 pm This presentation focuses on how to incorporate mobile phones into classrooms in spite of the fact that they have long been regarded as a threat against class discipline. They have always been deemed a hindrance to the teaching-learning process. Hence, teachers should turn their students mobile mania to their advantage.

NILETESOL TESTING COLLOQUIUM SPECIAL EVENT


Classroom-based assessment in TESOL: Benefits and challenges January 29th Bassily Hall

4:00 pm

In the past two decades, the field of educational assessment has witnessed a paradigm shift in regard to the role of assessment in the learning process. Educators and educational researchers across disciplines (e.g., Shepard, Wiggins) praise effective classroom-based assessment (CBA) for its potential benefits, such as increased authenticity, better alignment with course learning outcomes, and accessibility of results (including meaningful feedback) to various stakeholders. On the other hand, some researchers are quick to point out some very important criticisms, such as a lack of objectivity of teachers as evaluators, inexperience of teachers to construct effective CBAs, and the difficulty in interpreting results and making comparisons to other student cohorts. These issues may be even more critical in the field of TESOL, as the construct of language proficiency is often difficult to define, not to mention measure. This interactive panel discussion will explore the following issues: What exactly is CBA? What format do CBAs take and for what purposes are CBAs used? In what ways does CBA differ from standardized testing? How can CBA enhance teaching and learning? What kinds of resources and support do teachers need to select or develop effective CBAs? Can CBA prepare students to perform well on external standardized assessments? What can teachers do to minimize the tension between CBA and external standardized testing? Where do self- and peer assessment fit into CBA? What are some of the drawbacks or criticisms of CBA? Each panelist will give a brief presentation and then respond to participants questions and comments. Local and international views will be presented. PANELISTS: Elizabeth Arrigoni (Moderator) Atta Gebril Deborah Healey Deena Boraei Hanan Khalifa Marilyn Plumlee

NILETESOL 20X20 EVENT


January 28th What is a 20X20 Event? This is an event where speedy presentations are given by professionals in the field of education to encourage innovative professional development ideas. Presenters will be given seven minutes to speak on a subject accompanied by 20 auto-advancing slides. Each slide is displayed for 20 seconds. This event will be moderated by Rania Jabr, Senior Instructor at the American University in Cairo, who has been conducting 20x20 sessions in international conferences and has included this new tech tool in academic English language classes to teach both content and language skills. Session 1: Title: Becoming tech savvy teachers: Ignite, 20x20, & Pecha Kucha Rania Jabr - Event Coordinator Session 2: Jim O'Neill A collaborative approach to speaking in the classroom Dalia Helmy Ahmad Sedky Facebook for e-novating classroom activities Hoda Mounir AminInspiration: EFL learning through creative writing Susanne Rizzo Critical Friendship Circles: Effective feedback in teacher training CC P006 (Mary Cross) 3:00 pm

NILETESOL POSTER SESSION EVENT


January 29th SSE CP17 10:00 am

What is a Poster Session? A poster session is an informal event in which presenters share research or new ideas via paper posters. The posters are accompanied by 10 minute explanations and time for questions. The session is set up in a gallery walk-through style, where posters are displayed and presentations are going on simultaneously in different parts of the room. The audience moves from poster to poster according to individual choice, gathering around each poster in small groups to hear the presentations. This allows for intimate interaction with the audience in a more casual format. Presentations
Kariman Mohsen Bahgat Teaching speaking using mice and dice "Mice and Dice" is a board game that makes students engaged, motivated and inspired. The presenter will share a new idea that encourages students to speak freely in conversation classes. All attendees will get a handout on how to apply the game in their language classrooms. Hager Gamal Ahmed Labib Al-Tonsi Blended learning Blended learning makes use of the best features of online and face-to-face learning. The proportion of online to face-to-face depends on learners, instructors, and facilities. The presenter will illustrate different blended learning design models and infrastructure tools to help participants adapt them in their classrooms. Maha Hassan Abd El Latif Tempting teachers in using technology to develop their skills Moving from traditional to modern ways of teaching needs patience and time. The best thing about it is that time helps teachers gain professional maturity. This is enriched with modern ways of teaching as well as applying new technology both to help students learn better and to develop teachers' skills. Shaimaa AbdelFattah Ismail AbdelHafez Global gurus in the making This poster is a display of students engagement in technology-related activities and international projects. Students are shown in action while video conferencing, blogging and using other presentation tools. It also includes reflections and feedback from parents and international partners. Waleed Nureldeen Disabled Access Friendly: Do more than just teaching English In this session, the presenter will introduce the idea behind the Disabled Access Friendly ELT campaign which aims to sensitize students to issues affecting people with mobility disability. To this end, the session will showcase how teachers can use lesson plans, graded readers and videos to achieve the campaigns aim. Sanaa Khattar Teaching excellence from an EFL perspective This talk draws on self-reflection as how excellence in teaching in an EFL context can be supported or hindered. The focus is on three thorny issues both Egyptian and Yemeni TOTs debated, i.e. how curriculum affects TEFL in countries, how exams are implemented and how far the classroom size is influential. Positive and negative effects will be explored drawing on TOTs concrete experiences.

NILETESOL SPECIAL EVENT PANEL DISCUSSION


The ideal teacher: A declaration of nativeness or excellence?
January 28th CC P008 (Shafik Gabr Hall) 11:00 am EFL/ESL teachers have been categorized using the NS/NNS (native speaker/ non-NS) dichotomy into NESTs and NNESTs (native English speaking teachers and non-NESTs). Researchers (Liu, 1999; Medgyes, 1992; Rampton, 1990) have provided evidence of individuals that cannot be categorized using this dichotomy. This inaccurate and inequitable categorization of teachers into NESTs/NNESTs can affect students perception of their EFL teachers. This perception may influence students attitudes, learning, students evaluation of their teachers and the demand of a certain category of teacher resulting in unequal job opportunities in the EFL market. Due to the above mentioned reasons, and despite the fact that there are a large number of NNESTs teaching ESL/EFL, the NEST has always had a superior status (Liu, 1999). Canagarajah (1999) discussed the political and economical consequences that stem from the NEST/NNEST dichotomy such as unequal job opportunities and unequal pay. Moussu (2002) stated that the dichotomy exists in hiring practices and some teachers are not hired because they are not native speakers (NSs). Moreover, some online EFL/ESL job advertisements even specify being a NS as a qualification. Furthermore, TESOL published A Position Statement against Discrimination of Nonnative Speakers of English in the Field of TESOL (TESOL, 2006) which states that employment decisions based solely on native speaker criterion is discriminatory against well-qualified individuals. It also states that TESOL is against such discrimination and that employment should be based on language proficiency, as well as other criteria, without any reference to nativeness. This statement shows that TESOL is well aware of the existence of this problem in the EFL/ESL job market. This supports the notion that the equality principle among EFL/ESL teachers in hiring practices might not be implemented as effectively as it should, where fair job opportunities are not provided for all EFL/ESL teachers in respect to their ethnicity, nationality or nativeness. This interactive panel will discuss the issues mentioned above, possible reasons and suggest promising approaches that might help raise awareness of the problem. DISCUSSION QUESTIONS How do students categorize EFL teachers? Do students prefer a NEST, NNEST or a bicultural teacher? Do they associate the image of the NEST with the image of the ideal teacher? Do students perception of their teachers affect teachers perception of themselves? Do students influence the demand for EFL teachers with their teacher preference? Does the EFL job market offer unequal job opportunities and unequal pay for different categories of teachers (NESTS/NNESTs/BCTs)? If so, then to what extent? Is there a bias towards NESTs in educational establishments hiring practices in the Middle East? Are discriminatory practices toward NNESTs - such as unfair advantages given to NESTs in the workplace by administrators/colleagues- common in the Middle East? How can we help minimize discriminatory practices in the EFL market? How can we raise awareness about this issue? PANELISTS Heba Fathelbab (Moderator) Hossam El Din Attiah Mariam Osman Susanne Rizzo

NILETESOL SPECIAL EVENT PANEL DISCUSSION


E-novation in online EFL teacher training
January 28th CC P008 (Shafik Gabr Hall) 1:00 pm

Though utilizing games in the English language classroom has long been a common and accepted practice, the instructional power and effectiveness of using digital games in education is still being investigated and questioned (McClarty, Orr, Frey, Dolan, Vassileva, McVay, 2012). In a cooperative effort to prepare teachers in using 21st century computer games as part of sound pedagogical practice, the Regional English Language Office (RELO) of the U.S. Embassy, Cairo and the University of Oregons American English Institute offered twenty-two Egyptian ELT professionals Trace Effects: An online EFL Teacher Training Course using the U.S. Department of States computer game Trace Effects and its supplemental materials. Taught by one of the Trace Effects creators at the University of Oregon, the course focused on understanding how and when to best integrate game activities into lesson plans and curricular goals, using the teachers manual for supplemental activities and integrating Trace Effect into local classrooms. In this panel discussion, participants will share their experiences and opinions on course design and organization, outcomes of team building between and amongst instructors and students, responses to the pedagogy of gaming, and the results of participant action research projects and other assignments. Ample time for questions and audience input will follow. McClarty K. L., Orr A., Frey P. M., Dolan R. P., Vassilev V., McVay A. (2012). A Literature Review of Gaming in Education. Pearson.

NILETESOL SPECIAL EVENT PANEL DISCUSSION


Beyond teacher training: Innovation in professional development for EFL teachers January 29th CC P022 10:00 am
Technology can offer innovative ways to make EFL teachers professional growth a shared endeavour, and this panel discussion will focus on two major techniques that can be of a great help to do so, namely Electronic Portfolios and Online Teacher Learning Communities. An e-portfolio is a multimedia file that includes a variety of formats, such as audio, video, graphics, and text that a teacher can create to document aspects of his/her work. The file can be published on the world web or simply put on a flash drive for other teachers to consult, comment, and learn from. The e-portfolio is therefore a suitable instrument that can encourage the teacher to reflect on his/her own teaching experience and make it shared with distant peers for the sake of collaboration. An Online Teacher Learning Community on the other hand, is a cyber space that addresses the learning needs of its members by facilitating peer-to-peer learning as a means to support teacher professional growth. Through social networking and computer-mediated communication, teachers work as a community to achieve a shared learning objective as proposed by the participants, reflecting personal interests. In an online learning community, teachers can share knowledge via textual discussion, audio, video, or other Internet-supported media. Technology within EFL is having an increasingly large role because it provides opportunities to interact with a wide array of English content that was not achievable earlier. Thus, such techniques should enable the development of a technology-integration plan, and guide the appropriate professional development. PANELISTS: Dr Ezzeddine Saidi (Moderator) Seyfeddine Mohamed

NILETESOL SPECIAL EVENT PANEL DISCUSSION


The Disciplined Classroom
January 29th CC P022 12:00 pm

Within the Disciplined Classroom, a dynamic environment is created in which students are aware of their duties and responsibilities. They are not passive learners who need to be managed but rather active learners who take responsibility for their own suc cess. Ideally, through implementing this approach, students will become masters of the self-access skills they need for autonomous learning. Creating this type of classroom requires that teachers teach students how to learn, not just what to learn. A Disciplined Classroom does not simply refer to classroom management, but requires that the teacher consider a number of factors, such as teaching style, motivation techniques, feedback strategies, and rapport-building activities. In addition, student autonomy is not just a buzzword; with the Disciplined Classroom, it is a central ingredient which helps to develop the attitude of life-long learning. This interactive panel discussion will explore the following issues: What do we mean by the Disciplined Classroom? What does the Disciplined Classroom refer to? In what ways does it differ from a regular classroom? How can teachers apply the success criteria for such a classroom? What can teachers do to perform well in the Disciplined Classroom? Where do students fit into the Disciplined Classroom? What are some drawbacks or pitfalls to avoid?

Educational material which fosters fundamental human values can be an important part of learners development. At the HILLSIDE PRESS educational seminar and workshop, we will discuss how we can change the old Ho-hum! reaction into the desired Ah-ha! experience.

Innovation in TESOL: Digital literacies


Nicky Hockly Director of Pedagogy The Consultants-E

Digital literacies, the skills needed to effectively interact with digital technologies, are key 21st century skills, and are increasingly important in educational curricula. What exactly are these literacies, and where might they have a place in the English language classroom? We look at some of the theory underpinning digital literacies, and also at some practical classroom activities for teachers to try out with their own students in the EFL classroom.

In the past two decades, the field of educational assessment has witnessed a paradigm shift in regard to the role of assessment in the learning process. Educators and educational researchers across disciplines (e.g., Shepard, Wiggins)praise effective classroom-based assessment (CBA) for its potential benefits, such as increased authenticity, better alignment with course learning outcomes, and accessibility of results (including meaningful feedback) to various stakeholders. On the other hand, some researchers are quick to point out some very important criticisms, such as a lack of objectivity of teachers as evaluators, inexperience of teachers to construct effective CBAs, and the difficulty in interpreting results and making comparisons to other student cohorts. These issues may be even more critical in the field of TESOL, as the construct of language proficiency is often difficult to define, not to mention measure. This interactive panel discussion will explore these issues.
