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

Learner Stategies in CALL

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

Keynote speakers

Professor 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, materials 

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:

Investigations of strategies language learners use in 
technology-mediated environments
Impact of new technologies on learning strategies and the design of 
materials to prompt good learning strategies
Evaluation/assessment of the effects of learner strategy training in CALL
Current and future trends in educating language teachers to teach 
strategies for using technological language resources
Impact of distance and web-based learning environments for language 
learning strategies
Please submit abstracts (150 – 250 words) electronically by June 30, 
2006 to
Volker Hegelheimer, volkerh at iastate.edu. Notifications of acceptance 
will be sent out by July 15, 2006.

Hosted by the Program in Applied Linguistics & Technology, the Program 
in Teaching English as a Second Language/Applied Linguistics, the CALL 
Club, the Linguistics Program, and the Department of English, Iowa State 
University, Ames, Iowa.
