Meeting Description: Research Network Symposium at AILA

The AILA Research Network (ReN) on Interlocutor and Instructor Individual Differences in Cognition and SLA is seeking participants for its symposium at the World Congress of International Applied Linguists, Brisbane, Australia (10-15 August 2014). The symposium will focus on the relationship between interlocutor or instructor individual difference factors (such as native language, gender, experience, educational and research background) in relation to cognition and/or behavior regarding factors (e.g., input/instruction, feedback, gestures, tasks, elicitation of student output, etc.) believed to affect language acquisition in instructed settings.

The AILA ReN on Interlocutor and Instructor Individual Differences in Cognition and Second Language Acquisition (SLA) provides a central forum for the systematic investigation into the role of interlocutor and instructor individual differences (IDs) in cognition and behavior believed to mediate SLA. Specifically, the ReN aims to (1) create awareness of existing and ongoing research on this topic, (2) encourage additional study and collaboration, and (3) support the development and exchange of ideas on projects that explore how interlocutor and instructor IDs influence cognition and behavior related to SLA processes, and what this means for both SLA theory and practice.
