e-learning symposium 2015 | Call for contributions | 10 years anniversary e-book

We are planning the publication of a selection of case studies showcasing the excellent and inspiring work of language teachers using technology in the classroom and to support the learning of their students. This collection will form a snapshot of good practice as we celebrate our 10th anniversary symposium, and will accompany articles from invited contributors describing how technology has changed and transformed their own professional practice over the last ten years.
This open access e-book will be freely available for download and will be aimed at practitioners in secondary and tertiary education. The focus of the book will be around practical experience ‘in the field’ and reflective practice, rather than research.  It will be officially launched at the 10th LLAS e-learning symposium, to be held in Southampton on 22-23 January, 2015.

Possible themes include:

Technology-related projects which were inspired by community activity or engagement with the LLAS elearning symposiumEngaging in CALL researchMOOCs and other types of large-scale or online teachingSocial media in language learningBest practice in telecollaborationOpen educational resources and their use in teaching and learning languageThe use of innovative tools in language teachingMethods of online and computer-aided assessmentUse of mobile technologies for language learning

We anticipate case studies to be c.3000 words and we will issue a template to all accepted authors to work to, which is likely to include Context/rationale, aims/outcomes, what you did, evaluation/impact and conclusion. Case studies may also link to papers to be presented in the 2015 symposium (event call for papers due in September).

We invite all former and yet-to-be e-learning symposium attendees to contribute examples of your good work to this publication by sending an expression of interest to the co-editors at LLAS: Kate Borthwick, Alison Dickens and Erika Corradini.
