CALL for Papers: Special Issue on Methodological Innovation in CALL Research
and its Role in SLA
Special issue editor: Bryan Smith

This special issue of Language Learning & Technology will focus on
methodological innovation in current CALL research. As the field of CALL
matures, teacher-scholars are employing many new and exciting applications of
digital technologies for second and foreign language learning (L2L), including
mobile technologies, gaming, and social media to name just a few. Likewise,
new applications for student-computer and student-student interaction continue
to improve and expand. Such developments, while exciting, present a host of
methodological challenges for researchers. That is to say, as we attempt to
harness many of these technologies for L2L and study their effectiveness we
often find that familiar methodologies for collecting and analyzing data are

For this special issue we seek proposals that highlight how specific
innovative methodological choices allow us to capture and/or analyze aspects
of learner-computer or learner-learner interaction in a way that illuminate
the relationship between some aspect of CALL and SLA. Innovative
methodological choices may include applying an existing methodological tool or
technique from CALL or a cognate field in a new way or using a specific
technology in a methodologically innovative fashion. An example of an
innovative methodological choice would be if one were to conduct a stimulated
recall session while a participant viewed a screen capture of her own eye gaze
during a previous task-based CMC activity. Whereas stimulated recall is a
widely used methodological technique in applied linguistics research, it is
not often employed in conjunction with eye gaze recordings of CALL tasks.
Likewise, though eye tracking technology has been used in reading research for
decades, it has only recently begun to gain momentum in CALL as a tool for
exploring the nature of learner attention to form during interactive tasks.

In order to be considered for this special issue, proposals must present
in-depth empirical data and report on actual language learning processes or
outcomes. Papers that present an original, innovative and compelling
conceptual framework for CALL methodology as it relates to SLA will also be
