Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics; Language Acquisition 

Call Deadline: 22-Nov-2010 

Meeting Description:

Against the backdrop of a 'socio-constructivist' approach, this event will 
focus on combining web collaboration and pedagogic applications of 
corpora in order to facilitate and strengthen authentication in language 
learning and teaching. Emphasis is thus on both content and 
communication-based learning activities and on how computer mediated 
communication (CMC) and corpus methodologies can be pedagogically 
integrated for generating innovative synergies. 

Promising contexts of pedagogic application include in particular content 
and language integrated learning (CLIL) and language learning for 
intercultural communication.

Our aim is to take stock of the current state of affairs in corpus and CMC-
based language learning and teaching, to explore integrative pedagogic 
concepts and tasks, and to propose new research perspectives. Special 
attention will be given to the needs and purposes of 'young' researchers in 
the field. 

The symposium will take the following structure:

- Pathway lectures will introduce key topics in corpus and CMC-based 
language learning in order to provide a research context and orientation for 
the paper sessions and workshops. 

The lectures will be delivered by
Ana Frankenberg-Garcia, ISLA & Universidade Nova de Lisboa
Bernd Rüschoff, University of Duisburg-Essen
Steven Thorne, University of Groningen & Portland State University

- Paper presentations and posters are welcome from participants to discuss 
their own research objectives, approaches and findings in this area.

- Workshops will offer hands-on practice in pedagogic corpus processing 
and web collaboration in relation to relevant research perspectives and 

- A round table discussion will provide a synthesis of major insights and
outlooks for future activities. 

Call For Papers

Reminder: ALL Symposium proposal deadline: 22. Nov. 2010

We welcome proposals for 20-minute paper presentations (plus 20 minutes
discussion) or posters focusing on using pedagogic corpora or CMC/web
collaboration to support authentication in content and communication-based
language learning and teaching.

Please submit a 300 word abstract (including a title) by 22 November 2010. 
More information is available on the symposium website.

Notifications of acceptance will be sent out during the week beginning 13
December 2010.
