CALL Your Data – XIXth International CALL Research Conference, Bruges, 4-6 July 2018

The International CALL Research conferences focus on the role of technology in the language-learning and teaching process. The XIXth edition will take place in Bruges (Belgium) from 4 to 6 July 2018 and will explore the issue of Open Data, Information and Content. We define ‘Open’ as incorporating the qualities of being accessible, exchangeable, sustainable, reusable and useful. Every CALL practitioner and researcher is confronted on a daily basis with the challenges and issues associated with the use of Data, sometimes massive amounts of it, where Data can become Information and/or Content depending on our goals.

Concise Encyclopedia of Educational Linguistics

The notion of ‘ interlanguage ’ has been central to the development of the field of research on second- language acquisition (SLA) and continues to exert a strong influence on both the development of SLA theory and the nature of the central issues in that field.
Shona Whyte's insight:
First published in 1999, this article relies on references to research published in the 1970s and 1980s

New CER descriptors

New CER descriptors | TELT | Scoop.it
The CEFR Companion Volume with New Descriptors (Provisional Edition) is now available. The French version will be published in late autumn. It is intended as a complement to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Learning, teaching, assessment (CEFR). It represents another important step in a process that has been pursued by the Council of Europe since 1971 and owes much to the contributions of members of the language teaching profession across Europe and beyond. The “Companion Volume” is the Council of Europe’s response to requests that have been made by the groups involved in the field of language education to complement the original illustrative scales with more descriptors. In addition to the extended illustrative descriptors, it contains an introduction to the aims and main principles of the CEFR.
