Subject: Call for Papers: Beyond the Language Classroom
E-mail this message to a friend
We are inviting contributions to an edited book, to be published by a major
international publisher, on the topic of language learning and teaching
beyond the classroom. The aim of the book is to provide an account of the
range of settings and types of learning and teaching beyond the classroom
and to develop a broad theoretical understanding of this area of research
This call for papers is for two types of contributions: the first part of
the book will include empirical papers reporting on research in out of
class language learning. The second part of the book will include
contributions reporting on the practical implementation of pedagogy is for
out of class learning. This could include institutional efforts to
encourage and support students in their learning outside the classroom, or
it could report on the assessment of learning done outside the institution,
Proposals can cover any of the following areas:
Self-access, distance education, workplace learning, home schooling,
computer-mediated learning, use of mobile devices, study abroad, use of
broadcast materials, self-instruction, online or offline learning
communities, naturalistic learning, or learning in multiple settings.
Within this broad framework, contributions may focus on issues such as:
- strategy use
- motivation and affective factors in out-of-class learning
- access to resources
- new modes of teaching and learning
- interaction between out-of-class and in-class learning
- interaction between language learning and everyday life
- assessment of out-of-class learning.
- any other relevant areas
The full call for papers is available from http://www.innovationinteaching.org

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such
can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non
Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be
offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers
only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any
gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting
your human resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills
in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure
that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny.
Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a program.
