OPENING PLENARY - The Dictionary as Data: What the Online Dictionary Tells Us About English
What makes a person look up a word? When do you use a dictionary? Looking up a word in a dictionary is an intimate act for each of us as individuals, but the words sought by millions of users put together tell us a surprising story about the English language. By watching trends of lookups on a heavily consulted online dictionary, lexicographers track which entries are being consulted at any given moment. Some words are perennial sources of curiosity, while others show spikes of interest triggered by news from the worlds of politics, entertainment, and sports. Some words express the general mood of the culture; others reflect a poignant specificity. At the same time, this Web traffic tells a story about the changing business of dictionaries -- and what is expected of a dictionary in the 21st century.

20/20 Vision: Future Planning for the Academic Success of International Students
Research shows that international students have a difficult transition into universities; their needs are unique and involve not just the issue of using a second language to navigate the academic world but they must also learn how to integrate into the social, cultural and multidimensional educational system in the United States. IEPs need to serve as a bridge – a transition period during which students acquire English language skills, the requirements and expectations of academia, and the intercultural nuances of the American university. This presentation demonstrates how we can use research to inform future planning by revealing the appropriate tools and support structures necessary to equip students with the intercultural skills needed for success in academic, linguistic and multiple settings. It also highlights how IEPs and host/partner institutions can establish productive dialogue and collaborative mechanisms to provide ESL students with enriched campus integration opportunities.

Idioms, Usage, & Habit: Why Learners Need a Learner’s Dictionary
Learner’s dictionaries differ greatly from traditional monolingual dictionaries, and are changing the way English teachers think about using references in and out of the classroom.

This is a tour of a learner's dictionary from the inside out, with ideas for exercises for classroom use or homework.

FRIDAY PLENARY - 2020: Where Hindsight and Foresight (might) Meet
Predictions about the future, even over relatively short timeframes, such as the next few years, between now and 2020, are notoriously unreliable. However, if we look at where we are now, and how we got here, we can consider where we might be headed in the near-future. For example, according to the Nielsen market research group, the “most distinguishing characteristic” of people in the USA in 2020 “will be their ethnic and racial makeup”. They predict that: “In only a few short years, by at least 2025, over half of all families with children will be multi-cultural. Less than half will be native born non-Hispanic white”. Another major driver of change, especially in the last 20 years, has been access to new technologies. This plenary will, then, look at how these kinds of changes – cultural, linguistic, technological and others – might impact on the work of language teachers and learners, here and elsewhere.

Plenary sponsored by TESOL.

SATURDAY PLENARY - Stuck in the Past, or Embracing the Future? Preparing L2 Students for Academic & Professional Writing Contexts
Being able to write effectively for academic and professional purposes is more important than ever for L2 students, especially those educated in California. Are L2 writing programs stuck in the past when it comes to college preparatory writing (and reading) instruction? This plenary session will review the past, spotlight the present, and forecast the future with regard to L2 academic literacy instruction, focusing particularly at the postsecondary level. It will highlight the lingering controversy around the role of the “five-paragraph essay,” discuss the importance of reading and vocabulary strategy instruction, and discuss the always lively issue of grammar instruction and error feedback in the writing class. This will be a highly practical session with (it is hoped) something for everyone.

Using Film to Link Languages and Cultures
“Little has been done in the utilization of moving pictures in the teaching of foreign languages, but the moving-picture industry in this country [USA] has made our students so familiar with films for entertainment that the adaptation of their use to another field would be simple.” As it turns out, it was not so simple. But those were the assumptions and expectations expressed by W.S. Hendrix, in 1939, in his article entitled ‘Films in the Learning of Foreign Languages’ in The Journal of Higher Education. In this workshop, we will, then, look at where we are nearly 80 years after Hendrix’s claim, and see how film cans be used to make more explicit the links between Language and Culture, in ways that print-media, such as traditional textbooks, cannot.
