"How Digital Literacies are Reshaping the New Oratory: Implications for Teaching Language and Literature"
The 21st century has ushered in a new era for oral and visual communication. TED talks, sales pitches, conference keynotes, and virtual webinars have become the new forms of public speaking. But few of these forms are included in school curricula. How do we equip young people for a future where competence in this ‘new oratory’ is the norm? This keynote identifies themes of the ‘new oratory’ and shows practices that educators can use.

"Learning Strategies and Learner Autonomy in the Digital Literacy Era"
My talk will cover issues on the 21st century education, then I’ll address the question of why learning strategies and learner autonomy become crucial in the digital age. Important points on T-pack will be highlighted, especially about its potential in making teaching and learning activities more effective and efficient. Afterwards, we’ll see what research on learning strategies has to say in the Indonesian context, and also how learner autonomy has taken place in the educational contexts of Indonesia. What all these mean to language teaching and learning will be put forward before the conclusion of my talk.

"MODERN INDONESIAN SHORT STORIES: DIDACTICAL LITERATURE REVIEW"
This study focused on the study of the dictatorship pf modern Indonesian short stories. This needs to be conducted in order to support the reference for selecting learning materials of literary appreciation, especially those related to dictatorship values of Indonesian short stories. As one of the literary genres, short stories furnish moral values, instances, and life reflections that can be immediately understood by the readers. This study used mixed methods through stages. The first stage was collecting data on Indonesian short stories based on their periodization from any prints and electronics. The second stage was examining the dictatorship values of Indonesian short stories through the framework of literary dictatorship studies. The result of the study denoted that the mapping of Indonesian short stories consisted of 10 periodizations, which are: Melayu Rendah period, the 1920‒1932 period, the 1933‒1941 period, the 1942‒1944 period, the 1945‒1952 period, the 1953‒1960 period, the 1961‒1965 period, the 1966‒1969 period, 1970‒1999 period, 2000‒2020 period. The most productive publications were in 1953 – 1960 period. The number of Indonesian short stories that were successfully recorded from 1920 – 2020 was 16.821 short stories which are found in various magazines, short story books, and other media. Dictatorship values of Indonesian short stories covered a lot of aspects such as religious, moral, social, ideological aspects of Indonesian, and various other aspects. The results of the study are expected to bridge the implementation of national education based on dictatorship values by referring didactic learning sources. They are also expected to build a better national moral through literary learning, especially through Indonesian short stories that are convenient with the character of Indonesian people.
Key words: Indonesian short stories, periodization of Indoensian Literature, dictatorship of Indonesian literature

"A contextually sensitive professional learning model: bridging the divide between the ‘program’ and practice"
Teacher professional learning programs often aim to support teachers to develop new knowledge or instructional practices in order to improve students’ learning outcomes. However, connecting these knowledge and skills - often externally developed - to the teachers’ specific context remains a challenge. The gap is even wider in contexts of teaching English as a foreign language (EFL), such as Indonesia, where pedagogical frameworks adopted for English language curriculum have been developed for use in language settings a long way from most EFL situations. As such, the contents of professional learning are commonly perceived as propaganda for vested interests, and unrelated to local classroom realities. This paper presents a contextually relevant professional learning model that aims to bridge the gap between the aspirations of curriculum reform and teachers’ realities. The model emerged from a recent PhD study investigating the potential of a professional learning program based on genre theory from a Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL) perspective. While this theory is familiar to Indonesian teachers, its application required recontextualisation for the local school settings in terms of: available class resources, official curriculum demands, and teachers’ preparedness for engaging in professional dialogue. All of these aspects informed the development of the proposed professional learning model.

"Sundanese Time Expression in the Perspective of Language and Culture"
Like humans who are the speakers, language is bound by space and time. This paper describes the various meanings of the time expression in Sundanese as cultural phenomena show that arise based on the time expression. In this study, researchers classify and analyze data structurally through testing techniques in the form of substitution, permutation, paraphrasing, and expansion. Next, the researcher interprets the values of local wisdom about the concept of time in Sundanese society. The researcher also concludes the cultural implications of these values. The results showed that the Sundanese language has the features of time statements based on natural conditions, based on worship times, based on days, based on seasons, based on community conditions, based on rice fields, and based on planting time in the fields. The pattern of statements at that time shows that the Sundanese always try to keep up a harmony between humans and humans, humans and nature, and humans and their God. In terms of culture, Sundanese people show high creativity in choosing time references because their time references represent various things. The concept of time is not only constructed through formal lingual constructions (words, phrases, and clauses) alone but also involves everyday phenomena that are found and carried out. This is an important clue to understanding how Sundanese people perceive time.
Keywords: Sundanese, the perspective of language and culture, time expression

"JAPANESE LEARNING MATERIAL MODEL WITHIN TOURISM CONTEXT BY USING CONTENT AND LANGUAGE INTEGRATED LEARNING APPROACH (CLIL)"
The research was carried out due to students’ dissatisfaction with the existing Japanese learning materials used in the Course of Introduction to Japanese Language in Tourism context. Therefore, this research aims to design a model of Japanese learning materials in Tourism context by using Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) approach. The research focuses on the needs of Japanese learning materials in Tourism Context, Japanese learning materials in Tourism context used in the class at present, design of Japanese learning materials in Tourism context, the eligibility of the learning materials and the effectiveness of Japanese learning materials in Tourism context. The research employed mixed methods, qualitative and quantitative, and used R&D approach. The research was carried out within three semesters, done every even semester year of study. The research was conducted in the Study Program of Tourism Marketing Management, Faculty of Social Science Education Indonesia University of Education to students the Study Program of Tourism Marketing Management batch 2017/2018, 2018/2019, and 2019/2020 registered in the Course of Introduction to Japanese Language in Tourism. The research results showed that the contents of learning materials needed were those related to the field of Tourism. This is contrary to the fact that Japanese learning materials in the context of Tourism used at present in the course are not aligned with the needs of the students. The outcome of this research was model of learning materials that had been revised for three times, namely draft 1, draft 2, and draft 3/ final. The eligibility of the learning materials model was done by peer-evaluation and experts’ judgment, and effectiveness test result using N-Gain formula. The results demonstrated that model of learning materials developed in this research has high effectiveness. This research has limitation with respect to the data collection from the stakeholder and content diversity and thus, in the future, it is recommended that next researchers can involve interview or questionnaire distribution to stakeholders regarding themes or topics of learning materials needed by students to learn.
