Oral Language of School Children: Acquisition, Teaching, Remediation

Short Title: Acquisition & Teaching
Location: Grenoble, France

Date: 23-Oct-2003 - 25-Oct-2003
Contact Person: Jean-Pierre Chevrot
Meeting Email: jean-pierre.chevrotu-grenoble3.fr
Linguistic Subfield(s): Language Acquisition

Meeting Description:

The general aim of this meeting is to encourage exchange between three
communities: researchers in the field of oral language acquisition,
researchers in oral didactics, and teachers and/or interested members
of the school community.

Objectives are:

- To promote dissemination in the wider educational community of
research into the development of oral language and of research into
associated teaching methodologies.

- To compare ideas about such methodologies and to specify their
relation to pedagogical practices and theories of development.

- To encourage research into language development in school
children.

AIMS

Students' mastery of language is a recognized priority of the school
system. However, pedagogical practices related to oral language are a
complex issue for participants of the educational system. This is
partly due to the fact that curricula and related teaching practices
vary considerably, as do their underlying aims. These seemingly
contradictory aims include the following:

- to focus pedagogy on the learning of language structures or on the
learning of conversational skills;

- to teach standard usage or to encourage the ability to adapt one's
language to various situations;

- to favour communication and language practice or to favour
reflection on and analysis of language and communication.

The general aim of this meeting is to facilitate discussion of these
issues and to encourage exchange between three communities:
researchers in the field of oral language acquisition, researchers in
oral didactics, and teachers and/or interested members of the school
community.

The conference's overall objectives are:

- To promote dissemination in the wider educational community of
research into the development of oral language and of research into
associated teaching methodologies.

- To compare ideas about such methodologies and to specify their
relation to pedagogical practices and theories of development.

- To encourage research into language development in school children.


TOPICS

Proposals are invited for oral presentations (length: 20 minutes
followed by 10 minutes of discussion) or for posters (90cm*120cm ; 3
ft*4 ft) in the following areas. The organising committee reserves the
right to switch format type (poster/oral) to develop the best possible
program:

1. Description and modelling of language development:

- Spoken or sign Languages (production, understanding, metalinguistic
skills )
- Language acquisition (phonology, morphology, syntax, words) or
communication skills (pragmatics and socio-linguistics, text based,
prosody, body language).
- Development under normal or other circumstances (SLI or delay
related to other pathologies).
- Development in monolingual or multilingual contexts.

2. Description and modelling of educational practices:

- Analysis of official curricula, practices and contexts of oral
teaching and learning,
- Description of scholastic acquisition contexts and publics,
- Development and validation of learning, training and remediation
tools

Proposals must include observation-based data (corpora or
experiments). Particular attention will be given to proposals which
both deal with developmental and didactic problems. Proposals
concerning research on early development will be considered if the
research is related to later development (longitudinal studies).

Meeting Description: 

The aim of the Society is ''to promote interaction between
philosophers and psychologists on issues of common concern''.

Psychologists, neuroscientists, linguists, computer scientists and
biologists are encouraged to report experimental, theoretical and
clinical work that they judge to have philosophical significance; and
philosophers are encouraged to engage with the fundamental issues
addressed by and arising out of such work. In recent years ESPP
sessions have covered such topics as spatial concepts, simulation
theory, attention, reference, problems of consciousness, emotion,
perception, early numerical cognition, infants' understanding of
intentionality, memory and time, motor imagery, counterfactuals, the
semantics/pragmatics distinction, reasoning, vagueness, mental
causation, action and agency, thought without language, externalism,
connectionism, hypnotism, and the interpretation of neuropsychological
results.
