9.30               Understanding and developing foreign language teaching for better learning
                     Hanne Leth Andersen, Rector, PhD Language & Learning, Roskilde University
Language pedagogy is a complex composition of a great number of specific choices made both while preparing and during the actual teaching. Language teaching therefore heavily depends on the teacher’s (and the learners’) underlying overall understanding of what a language is, what the specific target language is, and how it is learned. 
At the same time, it is influenced by teacher and student roles and motivation. As such, language teaching may include communicative tasks, reading, grammar, differentiation, media and digitalization, role plays, and direct or hidden reference to learning strategies and learning styles, etc. 
In Hanne Leth Andersens's presentation she will show how you can develop your teaching by reflecting, individually or with colleagues, on your own deep understandings and the many choices you make. In this way, she will refer to theories on teacher cognition, language acquisition, grammar and language description, pedagogy, and motivation.

13.00            Keynote: Intercultural Competence
                    Michael Byram, Professor – Universities of Durham (England) and Sofia (Bulgaria)
Foreign language teaching has a natural focus on communication with those who speak other languages.                 
Traditionally this implies people in other countries, although today in our multicultural societies, there are many who speak other languages in our immediate environment. 
Communication is however not just a matter of exchanging information or opinions. It should involve a deeper understanding of others – and they of us. 
Communicative competences need to be complemented by intercultural competences and in this talk Michael Byram will describe intercultural competence, its relationship to language teaching
- and other subjects in the school curriculum - and illustrate what this means in practice, both language teaching practice and the practices needed in exchange visits focused inter alia on language acquisition.

14.00            Break
