ASP-GERAS CFP: SAES, Toulon, juin 2015

Appel à communications


Atelier Anglais de spécialité–GERAS

 

Co-présidents : Michel Van der Yeught et Anthony Saber

 

Dans le cadre du congrès annuel de la SAES, les présidents de l’atelier Anglais de spécialité–GERAS, Michel Van der Yeught de l’Université d’Aix-Marseille et Anthony Saber de l’École normale supérieure de Cachan, lancent un appel à communications sur le thème choisi par la SAES : « L’engagement ».

Les propositions, de 300 mots maximum et de préférence accompagnées d’une brève bibliographie, sont à envoyer par courrier électronique avant le 15 décembre 2014 aux présidents de l’atelier :

 

Michel Van der Yeught <michel.vanderyeught@univ-amu.fr>Anthony Saber <anthony.saber@ens-cachan.fr>


Texte de cadrage

 Le 55e congrès de la SAES nous invite à réfléchir sur la thématique de « L’engagement ». Or, malgré leurs efforts, les responsables de l’atelier ASP-GERAS reconnaissent honnêtement qu’ils n’ont pu problématiser cette notion, de façon suffisamment satisfaisante à leurs yeux, pour lui faire jouer un rôle stimulant pour la réflexion en anglais de spécialité. À défaut, et en suivant une suggestion du texte de cadrage du congrès, il ne leur semble pas totalement illégitime de déplacer la notion et de la faire passer du domaine de recherche aux chercheurs eux-mêmes en les sollicitant dans leur engagement. Nous les invitons donc à se pencher sur les problématiques en anglais de spécialité qui mériteraient qu’on s’y engage. Dans tous nos champs d’études, la question peut concerner des démarches déjà largement abouties, comme des intuitions qui n’en sont encore qu’à l’état de projet mais qui semblent porteuses de promesses. Inversement, certaines directions de travail ont peut-être perdu de leur pertinence et appellent donc au désengagement. Ainsi formaté, l’atelier est appelé à remplir une fonction bilan-perspectives qui peut ouvrir des pistes inexplorées, en clore des caduques, rafraîchir la réflexion et accueillir de nouveaux chercheurs. C’est en tout cas le vœu que nous formons.
Shona Whyte's insight:

Sometimes you just can't write a call for papers that makes sense to everyone.  The ESP wing of English studies in France interprets a general call for papers on "engagement" in reference to researchers themselves - what topics or approaches seem worth our research engagement?

EPAL | Appel à communication (15 Dec 2014)

Les thématiques mises en avant par cette cinquième édition du colloque Échanger pour apprendre en ligne sont les composantes de tout système de formation, avec un accent sur leurs interrelations. Quelques pistes sont pointées, de manière non exclusive, pour chacune de ces variables :

Les ressources : la vidéo « magistrale » en tant que ressource (MOOCs). Ressources puisées sur Internet (le web social comme ressource, notamment). Ressources élaborées par les apprenants et mutualisées. Lien activités / ressources.Les activités d’apprentissage : lesquelles suscitent des interactions fructueuses ? Quelle sont les caractéristiques des activités collaboratives ? Quelles activités pour les cours en ligne massifs ? Pour les dispositifs hybrides ? Liens collaboration / tutorat, collaboration / interactions, activités / évaluation, etc.Le tutorat, l’accompagnement : quel accompagnement pour quelle autonomisation ? Quelle présence à distance ? Dimension socio-affective du tutorat. Le tutorat par les pairs. Quel accompagnement dans les formations hybrides ? Lien tutorat / activités.Les interactions verbales : les interactions verbales représentent-elles un des critères d’évaluation des formations ? Comment se répartissent les interactions dans un cours hybride ? Interactions synchrones ou asynchrones, écrites ou orales. Interactions entre pairs,L’évaluation/certification : comment évaluer un travail collaboratif ? Comment évaluer dans les cours en ligne massifs ? L’évaluation par les pairs. L’évaluation des dispositifs.

Shona Whyte's insight:

You can also participate in English: Over the last few years, the academic community has been gripped by MOOC-mania and the mass of attendant hype, which has at least had the merit of bringing e-learning back into the spotlight. It is against this background that EPAL 2015 will focus on the systemic aspects of blended learning or distance learning course design: the systemic approach is increasingly being recommended for both research (“design-based research”, “activity theory”, etc.) and design. Every course, be it blended, distance, or MOOC, etc., is a training system consisting of a combination of elements, including resources, learning activities, tutoring, verbal interactions, and evaluation/certification. These elements ought to be analysed as interrelated components. Looking beyond individual courses to the “meso” or macro” level (Fichez), institutional and societal contexts also influence instructional design, whether at the adult training, university, or school levels. EPAL 2015’s objective is to investigate these dimensions of distance learning courses, and the institutional and societal contexts in which they operate, from a systemic and multi-disciplinary point of view, bringing together input from the fields of educational science, information science, applied linguistics, psychology, sociology, and computing.

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.

Table of keyboard shortcuts - Wikipedia

Table of keyboard shortcuts

In computing, a keyboard shortcut is a sequence or combination of keystrokes on a computer keyboard which invokes commands in software. Some keyboard shortcuts require the user to press a single key or a sequence of keys one after the other. Other keyboard shortcuts require pressing and holding several keys simultaneously.

Angles: French perspectives on the Anglophone world

Angles: French Perspectives on the Anglophone World is an international online peer-reviewed journal published bi-annually by the SAES (Société des Anglicistes de l’Enseignement Supérieur).

 

This interdisciplinary journal has a triple aim:

to encourage innovative interdisciplinary research;

to make cutting-edge research freely available;

to make full use of the possibilities offered by digital publication by encouraging the use of different modes of expression: text, image, video, podcasts, hyperlinks…

 

Each thematic issue contains 8–12 articles selected by a guest editor after a double-blind peer-review process. Additional, off-topic articles submitted to the same double-blind peer-review process are published in a separate section. These off-topic articles may respond to articles previously published in Angles.

 

The journal fosters scholarly risk-taking and experimentation by junior and senior researchers. Angles accepts academic contributions partly, or wholly, in non-traditional forms (documentary film, short story, comic book, manifesto, pamphlet…). Angles also encourages proposals from specialists wishing to explore a different field of study than their own.

Shona Whyte's insight:

New journal - two calls for papers online.
