New Dynamics of Language Learning: Spaces and places - Intentions and opportunities


International Conference and 29th Summer School of Applied Language Studies

Jyväskylä, Finland, June 6 -9, 2011



We would like to invite you to the international conference, "New Dynamics of Language Learning: Spaces and Places - Intentions and Opportunities". The conference will be held in Jyväskylä, Finland, on June 6-9, 2011. The event will also serve as the university's 29th Summer School of Applied Language Studies. It will be hosted by the Department of Languages, the Centre for Applied Language Studies, and the Language Centre of the University of Jyväskylä.


The conference will offer new insights into the learning and teaching of languages, acknowledging the complexity and dynamism of the processes involved (including motivation), the multiplicity of contexts where learning can take place nowadays (in school, out-of-school, across spaces) and the key role learners play as agents in what they eventually learn or do not learn.


Keynote speakers include

Zoltán Dörnyei (Psycholinguistics), University of Nottingham, UK 

Gráinne Conole (e-Learning), Open University, UK 

Constant Leung (Educational Linguistics), King's College, London, UK


The conference programme will consist of plenary talks, invited workshops, and parallel paper and poster sessions.  Participants can also propose a thematic or symposium session, consisting of 3-4 presentations or a panel.


The language of the conference is English, but we encourage the use and visibility of other languages in bi/multilingual handouts, slides, etc.  To submit a paper or poster abstract, or a symposium proposal please go to the conference website at and follow the instructions (to be provided shortly). The closing date for submissions will be January 15, 2011. 


Notification of acceptance (or rejection) will be given by February 26, 2011, after the proposals have been reviewed.


If you have any further queries please contact us by email  at newdynamics2011 at

We look forward to seeing you in Jyväskylä in June 2011!
