Call for Papers
The purpose of this two-day symposium is to develop and support digitally-enabled research across the field of education. By providing a forum for the discussion of digital approaches, the event will enable the exchange of methodologies, ideas, expertise and knowledge and present educational researchers, practitioners and doctoral students with opportunities to develop new networks and share good practice. The use of new digital research methodologies in education is rapidly developing in quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods approaches. Across education digital methods are being used to address new practices related to the changing landscape of research collaboration, observation, analysis and dissemination. As a result of Web 2.0 technologies, educational researchers are also increasingly turning to new approaches to research computer-mediated communication, involving social media, social networks and virtual immersive environments. The symposium will address the key issues related to the Digital Social Research Strategy, particularly in relation to the challenges posed by data collection and analysis in the digital age, including trust and quality, interoperability and data preservation in an educational context. The event is aimed at established as well as early career researchers and postgraduate students.

Video in Language Teacher Education

The research project will collect and evaluate a range of practices where video, screen capture and audio-visual tools and frameworks are used in innovative ways in teacher training and development. The project will have three outputs: there will be a research report of teacher training and development practices using video, screen capture and audio-visual tools; there will also be a website where examples of video practices with commentaries and pdf files can be uploaded and made available to interested parties. Towards the end of the project, there will be a video conference for participants and to disseminate findings and good practice to a wider audience of teacher educators (via Adobe Connect).

ESP teaching and learning research seminar: Brno, Sept 2018

14th ESSE Conference, Brno, Czech Republic 29 August – 2 September 2018

Call for papers – Seminar 25 A European perspective on ESP Learning and Teaching Research

Although there is increasing interest in innovative practices in
English for Specific Purposes (ESP) teaching (Shrestha, 2015; Teaching Practices in ESP today , 2016), reports in the published ES P literature are still relatively rare and , lacking theoretical underpinning tend to read like “ w ar stories and romances ” (Bowyers 1980). In particular, calls for empirical research to investigate the efficacy of ESP programmes (Master 2005) have remain ed largely unanswered , in spite of the impact of English as the language of communication between non - native speakers of English (English as a lingua franca ) on ESP programmes as well as on the type of research needed to support and design these programmes (Hewings 2002). This seminar aims to bridge these gaps and to address key issues related to resear ch in ESP teaching and learning, by inviting authors to present current research from a variety of European contexts (and from further afield) at the interse ction of the theoretical and practical dimensions of English for Specific Purposes.

A statistical analysis of learner corpus data, experimental data and individual differences: Möller 2017

In contrast to Second Language Acquisition (SLA) research, the study of individual differences, so far, has not been a prime concern of Learner Corpus Research (LCR). Statistical analyses in LCR have mostly included no more than a single predictor. By assessing the impact of Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) and its selectivity regarding, amongst others, cognitive and affective variables on the passive in corpus data and experimental data, we show that insights gained from such monofactorial approaches are necessarily limited. We formulate regression models containing multiple predictors to overcome these shortcomings, thus showing that data on learner variables can be related to learner corpus data as well as experimental data. Our results suggest that LCR needs to identify further variables which are relevant to explaining variability in text production, but which may not necessarily have received a lot of attention in the experimental approaches adopted by SLA research.
