Technology for Second Language Learning (TSLL) 4th Annual Conference

Learner Strategies in CALL

Friday, September 22 and Saturday, September 23, 2006
Memorial Union, Iowa State University

Keynote speakers
Andrew Cohen
University of Minnesota
Phil Hubbard
Stanford University

The strategies that learners use to direct their second language 
learning are critical when students use multimedia CALL, the Internet 
and other electronic resources.  These tools give students access to 
a large range of learning resources and opportunities, but for the 
most part leave learners on their own to decide how to best use them. 
How can teachers help to teach learners strategies for effective use 
of electronic materials for second language learning?  What does 
theory, research and practice tell us about effective use of 
resources?  Papers presented at this conference will address these 
questions by exploring the intersection between learner strategy 
training and CALL including implications for language classrooms, 
teacher education, and materials development.

Researchers and practitioners in CALL and CALL-related disciplines 
are invited to submit abstracts for empirical and theoretical papers 
on learner strategies in CALL.  Specific areas of interest include 
but are not limited to the following:

o	Investigations of strategies language learners use in 
technology-mediated environments 
o	Impact of new technologies on learning strategies and the 
design of materials to prompt good learning strategies
o	Evaluation/assessment of the effects of learner strategy 
training in CALL
o	Current and future trends in educating language teachers to 
teach strategies for using technological language resources
o	Impact of distance and web-based learning environments for 
language learning strategies

Please submit abstracts (150 - 300 words) electronically by June 30, 2006 to
Volker Hegelheimer, volkerh at iastate.edu
