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.

An evaluation of TTS as a pedagogical tool for pronunciation instruction: Tiago Bione, Jennica Grimshaw, Walcir Cardoso 2017

Short paper on text-to-speech for EFL input with intermediate Brazilian students. The researchers compared students' impressions and performance on tasks delivered by TTS and human voice and found little difference. They suggest TTS is suitable for pedagogical exploitation in contexts where authentic materials are in short supply.

Figement et discours spécialisé : Gautier 2017

Ce volume propose un état des lieux de la recherche actuelle sur la mise en oeuvre de la catégorie du figement pour l’analyse des discours spécialisés. Les auteurs articulent l’approche du figement d’une part avec la terminologie en examinant non seulement les modalités de formation des termes, mais aussi leur profil combinatoire, leur rapport à la notion de collocation et leur fonctionnement dans la dénomination. Ils envisagent d’autre part le rôle du figement en discours et dans la phraséo-genèse du texte. Les objets d’études sont variés – textes techniques, textes de presse spécialisée, textes de vulgarisation. Les langues objets sont le français, l’anglais et l’allemand.

How L2 learners of French and English express modality using verbal means: Leclercq & Edmonds 2017

How L2 learners of French and English express modality using verbal means: Leclercq & Edmonds 2017 | TELT | Scoop.it

Controlled study of use of modality in FR and EN at different levels of proficiency concludes:


"These crosslinguistic differences suggest that early L2 acquisition of verbal modal forms may progress more quickly for English than for French. This pattern could be explained with recourse to language-specific information concerning the complexity of the French system: Not only are verbs used in the French modal system subject to the same conjugation requirements as lexical verbs, but many such verbs are irregular. If this interpretation is correct, we may expect that modal adverbials play a greater role in French interlanguage than in English."

ReAL2: novembre 2017

ReAL2: novembre 2017 | TELT | Scoop.it
Le Réseau d'Acquisition des Langues Secondes (ReAL2) a été créé en février 2017 dans le but de réunir des chercheurs et enseignants-chercheurs, en poste dans des universités et laboratoires en France, dont les travaux portent sur l’acquisition des langues secondes.

L’objectif du réseau est, entre autres, de :
✤ mettre en avant la diversité des approches théoriques et méthodologiques en AL2 ;
✤ favoriser des contacts et échanges entre chercheurs en AL2 à travers des séminaires, journées d’études, ou colloques ;
✤ promouvoir des projets de recherche communs ;
✤ participer à la formation des doctorants et jeunes chercheurs ;
✤ développer l’interface acquisition/didactique ;
✤ créer une base de données réunissant des corpus de données acquisitionnelles, orales et écrites, issus des projets passés et en cours
