Debate 1
16th September Saturday 3.00 pm Room 120

Dr Waldemar Martyniuk, Dr Marcin Smolik, Dr Grzegorz Śpiewak

Nowe CEFR – rewolucja w dydaktyce językowej?!
Dobiegają końca prace zespołu ekspertów Rady Europy, których celem jest szczegółowy opis mediacji - piątej obok mówienia, pisania, rozumienia ze słuchu i czytania sprawności językowej przedstawionej - dotychczas jedynie w zarysie - w Europejskim systemie opisu kształcenia językowego (ESOKJ). Powstał pełniejszy teoretyczny opis tej sprawności, testowane są wyskalowane zestawy przykładowych wskaźników biegłości. Zapraszamy do rozmowy na temat konsekwencji, jakie z tych prac wynikają dla uczenia się, nauczania i oceniania biegłości językowej."

Debate 2
17th September Sunday 12.40pm Room 120


Teachers of English are constantly confronted with new approaches and techniques. Some of them call for abandoning traditional coursebooks as they seem to be an obsolete tool in the 21st century. What is the rationale then for abandoning coursebooks? What is the rationale for keeping them in the classroom? Would authentic materials be an suitable replacement for coursebooks? Should we base our teaching on role-playing games? The purpose of the BOOK OR NO BOOK debate is to answer these questions and examine the role of coursebooks, authentic materials and alternative materials in modern ELT.
The participants are Hugh Dellar (Lexical Lab, National Geographic Learning) – advocate for coursebooks, Joanna Łucka and Daria Domagała (Authentic Teaching) – advocates for authentic materials, and Monika Bigaj-Kisała (Empik School Rzeszów) – advocate for RPG and alternative materials. The discussion will be moderated by Roman Ociepa (IATEFL Poland). Active participation from the audience is strongly encouraged.
