OPENING PLENARY (POLINSZKY AUDITORIUM MAXIMUM)
Gregg Sotiropoulos: Why do I teach the way I do?

As teachers, we face many challenges of various natures on a daily basis. Many of us may feel overwhelmed and unprepared to cope with these challenges. Why is this the case? In order to find an answer, sometimes it is necessary to take a few steps back to rethink our professional development. We know that our professional development shapes us as efficient and effective ‘agents of change’ in education, but have you ever asked yourself ‘What kind of teacher am I?’ or ‘Why do I teach the way I do?’ Together, we will explore various questions that will help us reflect on our practices as teachers and, at the same time, help us create a ‘personal framework of reference’ to guide us and enable us to face our daily challenges with confidence.

CLOSING PLENARY (POLINSZKY AUDITORIUM MAXIMUM)
Kevin McCaughey: The Future of English and the Educational Space

The plenary discusses how English is changing: the perception of the language, and the way we teach English to meet the needs of a global market and to target skills needed for jobs of the future.  We will also take a critical look at the design of schools and classrooms, which have changed little in two centuries.  What changes are happening now and what will happen in the years to come?
