Typical subjects for submissions include theoretical debate on language learning in technology-rich learning environments and their influence on design; practical applications at developmental stage; evaluative studies of the use of technology in the teaching and learning process; assessment of the potential of technological advances in the delivery of language learning materials and enactment of language learning activities; exploitation of on-line information systems; and discussions of policy and strategy at institutional and discipline levels.

Call For Papers | EUROCALL 2016

The 23rd EUROCALL Conference will be held at the Cyprus University of Cyprus in Lemesos (Limassol) Cyprus from 24th to 27th August 2016.

CALL Communities and Culture

The theme of EuroCALL 2016 is CALL Communities and Culture. It offers a unique opportunity to hear from real-world CALL practitioners how they practice CALL in their communities, and how the CALL culture developed in local and global contexts. CALL has moved from traditional drill-and-practice programmes in the 1960s and 1970s to more recent manifestations of CALL, such as the use of interactive whiteboards, corpora and concordances, Computer-Mediated Communication (CMC), to the applications used in virtual learning environments and e-learning, virtual worlds, gaming and Mobile-Assisted Language Learning (MALL). Keeping an eye on the latest changes and on the future, and being well informed, are critical success factors for the CALL community. So the questions are:

Analysing conversational engagement in online discussion tasks: Breffni O'Rourke

A discourse analytic framework for conversational engagement in online discussion tasks
Shona Whyte's insight:

I heard this presentation at EuroCALL in the Netherlands this summer.  Very interesting work on the characterisation of online interactions in discourse analytic terms.  One practical goal is a framework that allows teachers and researchers to distinguish successful from less successful online interaction, which at present we feel intuitively but struggle to demonstrate.

EUROCALL 2015: Call for papers

EUROCALL 2015: Call for papers | TELT | Scoop.it
Critical CALL

The theme of this year’s conference is Critical CALL, fostering the notion that we now want to step back and critically appraise the field of CALL, to unpack and examine some of the assumptions that may have become ingrained in our practice, and also to reflect on the state of CALL and language pedagogy. There is also a need to take a critical stance and question what it is we are doing and whose interests we might be serving, since technology is not neutral, and nor is education. Inspired by those who advocate critical approaches to second language teaching, learning and assessment, especially when mediated by technology, we are particularly interested in contributions that look at the interdependence between language learning, power relationships and social change.
Shona Whyte's insight:

Conference is in Padua at the end of August.

The annual EuroCALL conference was held at one of the oldest and largest universities in The Netherlands, the University of Groningen (Rijksuniversiteit Groningen), which is celebrating its 400th year in 2014. The main Academy building, built in 1909 in the style of the Northern Dutch Renaissance, made an impressive venue with its stained glass windows and modern additions. The conference began on Wednesday, August 20th with workshops on using Machinima videos for teaching and learning, agile user-centered design for CALL, the SpeakApps system for enhancing oral skills online, and mobile devices used in the classroom. After the interesting workshops, attendees were greeted by Professor Elmer Sterken, Rector of University of Groningen.
