Lara Lomicka (University of South Carolina) and Gillian Lord (University of
Florida) are editing a volume on social networking and online collaboration
for the CALICO Monograph Series 2009 and are currently accepting chapter
proposals for the chapters presented below. Please submit to lomickasc.edu
and glordrll.ufl.edu a one- to two-page description of the chapter you
would like to write based on the general outline below. Please refer to the
title; you can amend aspects of the chapter as you see fit. Submissions
should combine SLA theory, research and practice of relevant applications,
such as those listed below. The book will focus on practical and
theory-based applications and how they relate to SLA and CALL theory, as
well as empirical studies detailing their usefulness to CALL.
The deadline to submit proposals is March 31, 2008. Thank you very much for
your interest and we look forward to working with you. Feel free to contact
us in case of questions.
