For international students in higher education, proficiency in English is crucial for academic success. Language test scores play a pivotal role in critical decisions, ranging from admission into degree programs to placement in language support classes. These score-based decisions not only affect the students but also have broader implications for educational institutions. The determination of a minimum score, often referred to as the “cut score,” is essential in this process. This session will explore the multifaceted considerations necessary for setting appropriate and effective score requirements for English language assessments. The panel, featuring representatives from Canadian universities and colleges and a Principal Measurement Scientist from ETS will offer insightful perspectives into the strategies their respective institutions employ to navigate the complexities and duties tied to language proficiency within higher education.

ChatGPT in the Classroom: Students' Ranking of Argumentative Papers Using ChatGPT in the Writing Process

Julie Lee

This presentation will explore post-pandemic market trends in junior programs with a focus on accommodation preferences, nationality mixes, English language proficiency, and curriculum interests. Although the nationality mix in juniors programs remains diverse, there is a significant increase in students from certain international markets. English language proficiency upon entry to junior programs is higher than in the past, reflecting more advanced English learning in schools and an expectation of a more challenging and dynamic language program from international language program providers. There is also growing interest in interdisciplinary curriculum, combining language studies with other subjects that students are interested in. Overall, these trends suggest a dynamic and evolving landscape for junior programs with an emphasis on diversified learning experiences.

EAP Teachers' Assessment Literacy: Raising Awareness and Guiding Development in Assessment Practices

Dr. Fatma Ismail Mohamed
Assistant Professor and Academic Manager, English Language Centre
University of Saskatchewan

This session will share the outcome of an exploratory study conducted in an English preparatory program to understand, re-conceptualize, and possibly develop Teachers’/Assessors’ Assessment Literacy (TAL/AAL). It has been observed that the evaluation practices adopted in the described context depend mainly on tests and that the adopted Assessment Practices (APs) therefore do not fulfil one primary purpose of assessment, which is supporting learning. Exploring TAL provided an understanding of teachers’ assessment awareness and whether or not their APs was informed by solid assessment knowledge. The presentation highlights APs that can guide assessment improvement and development in similar contexts.

Globally Networked Learning: Internationalization at Home in English Language Classes

Francesca Boschetti
Associate Director

Learner Identity: Helping Students Find their Voice in English

Chia Suan Chong
Author, communication skills trainer and teacher trainer
National Geographic Learning

For many students, English is a tool for international communication. Students will need to mediate interactions with people from different cultural backgrounds while accommodating, adapting, and accurately interpreting other people, all in a second language. But how much ownership do they feel of English? How confident do they feel about speaking up in a group setting? Are they able to express their identity in English? This talk explores the importance of helping students develop their relationship with English, and considers the strategies and the practical activities we can use to help students make English their own.

Learning Journeys: English Language Teachers and the Calls to Action

Simone Hengen
PhD Candidate
University of Regina

This presentation describes preliminary findings from a doctoral study exploring how English for Academic Purposes (EAP) instructors are responding to the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action. EAP Instructors have an important role in implementing the Calls to Action for English language learners, since their classrooms are often the first point of contact international student have with the culture and values of their university and Canada (Sterzuk and Hengen, 2019;Walsh Marr, 2019). Using participatory action research methodologies (Fine and Torres, 2021), the researcher and each participant co-designed a meaningful learning event and discussed its impact. Their experiences will be of interest to English language educators and administrators.

Practical Applications of AI in ESL Classrooms

ILSC Education Group and Fanshawe College

Mardy Arenas
Director of Operations
ILSC Education Group, Vancouver

Livia Wolffenbuttel
Academic Manager
ILSC Education Group, Vancouver

Unless you have been living under a rock for the last couple of years, you have definitely heard about Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its massive impact on everything we do. While many compare the results of AI emergence to the impact of the Internet, the wide use of AI is being increasingly compared to the even more impactful invention of the wheel, by many others. The use of AI in education is often shrouded in a combination of mythical and sci-fi fearmongering and perplexed intimidation and insecurity. While it is impossible to cover the full impact of AI on different facets of the ELT industry in 45 minutes to an hour, the purpose of this talk is to demystify the use of AI in ESL classrooms by enumerating some of its practical applications in the context of ESL learning/teaching and explore its empowering potential for both learners and educators.

The Promise and Precarity of Critical Pedagogy in English for Academic Purposes

Jennifer Walsh Marr
Academic English Lecturer
University of Toronto OISE and UBC Vantage College

The ongoing push to recruit international students to educational institutions suggests there will be a persistent demand for English for Academic Purposes (EAP) to support multilingual students joining Canadian colleges and universities. This talk will revisit the principles of EAP and highlight parallels with Freire’s transformational Critical Pedagogy, namely decoding, contextualization, praxis, and critical thinking. Beyond the parallels, there are also deep divisions between the stated goals of international education, the positioning of EAP in the margins of the academy, and the enactment of critical pedagogy. This presentation explores both promising initiatives and tensions in the enactment of critical pedagogy in EAP.
