Conference on FL creation and innovation: Toulouse, Dec 2015

Over the past decades in the field of language didactics there has been an increase in the quantity of research being carried out on the theme of creativity in the teaching/ learning process. In parallel, and mainly due to developments in technology, there have also been an increased number of studies in innovative pedagogies in relation to the design and creation of learning strategies as well as their assessment. But what unites these two concepts, creativity and innovation, though it may seem obvious to teachers – creativity being the engine and innovation the result -, it has not been sufficiently explored from a scientific perspective.


Proposals for presentations can be theoretical reflections on either both concepts individually or on the relation between them both. Proposals can also take the form of field research. All proposals must address the issue of teaching and learning foreign languages.

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.

CALL research conference on task design: Tarragona, July 15

XVIIth International CALL Research Conference
Task Design and CALL
6-8 July 2015, Tarragona, Spain

In recent CALL articles, conference presentations and project proposals, we notice a renewed interest in activities, and less emphasis on technology or theoretical pedagogy. These activities, elective or compulsory, can be subdivided into three partly overlapping categories: (a) focus-on-form tasks which can be defined as meaningful tasks in which the focus on particular forms is tightly embedded; (b) focus-on-meaning tasks which should lead to communication (CMC approach) or any kind of non-linguistic outcome (TBLT approach); and (c) form-focused exercises that focus on isolated forms, such as improved and enriched (drill-and-practice) exercises.

During this conference we will discuss the design process behind these tasks: How do we decide on task types? How do we shape them? How do we monitor and evaluate them?

Submitted presentations should tackle questions such as:

-       How do we design authentic, meaningful, useful and enjoyable tasks?
-       To what extent do tasks depend on context?
-       What can CALL learn from TBLT?
-       What can TBLT learn from CALL?
-       What are the affordances and limitations of technology?
-       How does technology impact on non-technological tasks?
-       What are the specific challenges for LMOOCs, OERs, Interactive Whiteboards, Student Response Systems, Synchronous Collaborative Writing Tools, Serious Games… ?
-       How do our tasks fit in with Complex Dynamic Systems Theory, Socioconstructivist environments, Flipped Classroom approaches …?
-       What is the role of corrective feedback?
-       What are the consequences for Learner Analytics?
-       Which tasks for which skills?
-       Which tasks are most appropriate for intercultural competence?


Call for Proposals
This is a preliminary announcement. The first call for proposals will be sent out mid November. The abstract should contain:

-       10 lines on the context of your research: situate your contribution;
-       30-40 lines where you  focus on the conference theme and try to tackle one of the questions mentioned above.

Deadline for submission of abstracts: January 31st 2015
Notification of acceptance: March 1st 2015

Report from the 2014 EuroCALL conference, the University of Groningen, Netherlands | The FLTmag

Report from the 2014 EuroCALL conference, the University of Groningen, Netherlands | The FLTmag | TELT | Scoop.it

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.
