International Workshop on "Technology Enhanced Language Learning"
Organizer: Chiu-Jung Chen, Di Zou, Pei-Lin Liu
Style of the workshop
A brief description / draft of CfP
The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum where international participants can share knowledge on the technology enhanced language learning (TELL). With the integration of pedagogy theories and careful design, TELL has the capability of providing learners with favorable conditions for language learning, such as independent and targeted skill practice, immediate corrective feedback, portability, social interactivity, context sensitivity, connectivity, individuality, and immediacy. As various kinds of exploration and implications have been emerging, more efforts should be devoted to make further understanding about the reasonable integration of language learning theories and latest technology development. The two-hour workshop will provide a forum where international participants can share knowledge, experiences and concerns on related issues in TELL, understand new era trends and strategies, as well as explore directions for future research collaborations.
Scope of interests includes, but not limited to:
Theoretical foundations of technology enhanced language learning (TELL)
Soft technologies of TELL
Hard technologies of TELL
Emerging ICT tools and applications for TELL
Language learning strategies & learning styles in situated learning for TELL
Digital content development for TELL
Assessment & evaluation of TELL
Blended learning & hybrid course of TELL
Socio-cultural perspectives and implications of education in TELL
Teachers’ professional development for translation and scaling up of TELL
TELL in open, distance and flexible learning contexts
TELL in informal learning (e.g., libraries, academic support services, student societies/guilds, careers, alumni, marketing and recruitment)
