Target audience: Teachers of English from Primary to Secondary levels of education

The EU has declared 2009 as European Year of Creativity and Innovation. In the following quote from an EU site “Creativity” could be seen as a key concept or as an umbrella key word able to articulate innovative perspectives on TEFL: “The modern world puts emphasis on better use of knowledge and rapid innovation. It therefore requires a broadening of the creative skills base involving the whole population. In particular, there is a need for skills and competences that enable people to embrace change as an opportunity and to be open to new ideas in a culturally diverse, knowledge-based society. Education and training are determining factors in this.”

Main focus:

This conference proposes to address the following questions:

  • What does it mean to speak of creativity in teaching-and-learning EFL?
  • How can we recognise and assess/evaluate creativity in TEFL?
  • In what ways can foreign language education be creative and enable students to work creatively in any of the following areas: intercultural education and (intercultural) citizenship education; translation; CLIL; action research; classroom practice?
  • In what contexts are teachers and students encouraged to be creative?
We must go with the flow. We don’t want to miss the “lorries” of

Keynote speakers:
  • Professor Do Coyle (University of Aberdeen)

Do Coyle is Professor of Learning Information at the University of Aberdeen. She has been involved in developing CLIL research and pedagogies for many years having led and participated in a wide range of European CLIL projects in teacher education. She has many publications on CLIL theories and practice and is passionate about involving both teachers and learners in action enquiry to achieve the highest quality learning and teaching contexts. She researches CLIL learning communities and innovates in both pre-service and in-service CLIL teacher education. She is an international advisor and consultant for national governments and agencies. Her special interest is in technology-enhanced learning and the use of video conferencing to build ‘borderless classrooms’. She also researches the role of thinking skills and intercultural learning in CLIL. Her focus within the CLIL Consortium is action enquiry, classroom practices, learning & teaching, materials development and teacher education. She is a researcher, advisor and consultant.

  • Professor Alison Phipps (Faculty of Education, University of Glasgow)

My research interests focus on languages and intercultural studies, with a particular critical concern for the different ways in which people learn to live and communicate together. My work is often interdisciplinary and draws on the resources of social and cultural anthropology, folklore, theatre and cultural studies, theology and education. My Ph.D. research and training as an anthropologist focused on an ethnography of outdoor and environmental community theatre in Germany. More recently I have been working on tourist language learning and the role of tourism in cultural change.

I am concerned to address the question of how it is that people of different languages and cultures encounter each other and how the contexts of their everyday encounters – formal education, tourism, theatre, environment – shape these encounters. I am a passionate linguist and lucky to have been able to collaborate with colleagues and students equally keen to explore creative ways of addressing the complex and changing landscape in modern languages and intercultural studies. My present research is concerned with a study of the elements: Air, Water, Fire, Earth and their relationship to language, lore and pedagogy. I continue to develop my research into languages and intercultural pedagogy as an education for peace, with a growing focus on constructions of faith and on the contribution of theological perspectives.
