Meeting Description:

Modern language teaching increasingly involves an interactive environment as students communicate with people from all over the world. In this process, technology facilitates communication and is likely to make the learning process more effective. There is great potential in what we will be referring to as 'Technology implementation in language teaching' (TILT) when it comes to promoting authentic communication, stimulating interpersonal and group skills, and generating positive interdependency while still valuing individual contributions. By putting new technologies - not only personal computers, but also smartphones, tablets, etc. - to good use in the language classroom, it is possible to improve student participation and promote autonomous learning, especially if these are clearly stated as learning objectives. We invite papers which present recent developments in TILT in tertiary education, relating to areas such as teaching methods, materials development, the application of corpus tools in the classroom, and continuing professional development in second language teaching. 

Call for Papers:

Procedure for Submitting Paper Proposals:

Colleagues wishing to participate in the seminar are invited to submit a 200-word abstract directly to the convenors by 31 January 2012. Notifications of acceptance will be sent by 29 February 2012. There will be a maximum of five papers in each two-hour seminar session, to allow for plenty of time for discussion. Each presentation will be given a 15-minute slot.
