Peripatetic considerations on research challenges in CALL | Colpaert | CALICO Journal

Peripatetic considerations on research challenges in CALL

 

An imaginary walk around the cathedral of Amiens in France. A virtual discussion between two CALLers who have a lot in common, but whose paths did not cross frequently. They discuss a number of topics and issues in CALL research such as academic evaluation, the pressure to publish, research design and changing roles.



Shona Whyte's insight:

Accessible introduction to the notion of "designedness," covering both technological and pedagogical aspects of the learning environment.

CALL Research Conference: Antwerp, July

XVIth International CALL Research Conference at Universiteit Antwerpen (Antwerp, Belgium), 7-9 July 2014.

The conference theme will be:  RESEARCH CHALLENGES IN CALL


Starting points for this conference are the 12 challenges Jozef Colpaert recently identified and presented at WorldCall 2013 in Glasgow, and which he classified into three categories: contextual (academic meritocracy, academic value of CALL, myths/hypes and broad-public perception), methodological (design, replication, slow research and transdisciplinarity), and epistemological (open, psychological, smart en sustainable aspects).

Transana: transcript/analysis

Transana: transcript/analysis | TELT | Scoop.it

Transana is software for professional researchers who want to analyze digital video or audio data. Transana lets you analyze and manage your data in very sophisticated ways. Transcribe it, identify analytically interesting clips, assign keywords to clips, arrange and rearrange clips, create complex collections of interrelated clips, explore relationships between applied keywords, and share your analysis with colleagues. The result is a new way to focus on your data, and a new way to manage large collections of video and audio files and clips.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Alternative to ELAN for audio/video transcription.  Also free.

WorldCALL 2013 - Gary Motteram's notes

WorldCALL 2013 - Gary Motteram's notes | TELT | Scoop.it

This Google Doc was shared by Gary Motteram; it has his notes from the recent WorldCALL 2013 conference with names and main points of the sessions he attended.

Shona Whyte's insight:

With nine parallel sessions going on simultaneously at an important conference held only every 4 or 5 years, it was hard to hear everything you might be interested in.  

 

These notes are a useful supplement to abstracts and short papers which are accessible from this link: http://www.worldcall2013.org/programme.asp

Here is a collection of videos from keynote speeches and round tables/symposia from last year's CCERBAL 2012 conference on Innovative Practices in Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) held at the University of Ottawa and organized by Marie-Josée Hamel.

 

The conference programme is here http://www.olbi.uottawa.ca/ccerbal2012/prog-en.html

and will probably be helpful in navigating the playlist.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Some important topics in CALL teaching, training and research and some big names - a pity no-one has been accessing these videos.

From Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) to Mobile Assisted Language Use (MALU)

From Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) to Mobile Assisted Language Use (MALU) | TELT | Scoop.it

In this recent TESL-EJ articles, Jarvis and Achilleos review different  terminology for connecting technology and SLA (TELL, WELL, NBLL).  On the basis of questionnaire data showing EFL users' preferences for mobile technology, they suggest changing two letters in the CALL (Computer Assisted Language Learning) acronym: Computer becomes Mobile and Learning become Use in MALU (Mobile Assisted Language Use).

 

The authors conclude that "MALU now needs to be our defining point of reference in keeping TESOL at the vanguard."

Shona Whyte's insight:

Which I suppose is fine if English is your frame of reference.  If the field is to include other languages, it's not so easy to make the argument.
