Meeting Description:

The 3rd Tamkang International Conference on Second Language Writing is intended as a forum to address the full range of pedagogical and research issues on writing in a second language.

Writing, as one of the fundamental language skills, has traditionally posed a variety of challenges for second-language teachers and learners. Once writing skills are placed within particular contexts, these challenges multiply. These range from addressing writing skills within traditional exam-driven curricula to navigating the proliferation of technologies, from creating meaningful contexts for the learning of writing to managing the workload created for teachers when students write and expect feedback.

Call for Papers:

Abstracts are invited for papers on any aspects of foreign or second language writing learning and pedagogy.

In addition, a recent theoretical and practical emphasis on writing in second language classrooms is the development and use of Corpus, a computer-based digital collection of second language learners' writing. This material has been widely applied to different domains of language teaching and research, including instructional design and curriculum development, learning strategies and teaching methods, and the analysis of learners' language development from a psycholinguistic perspective. Research and papers built in this and related areas, with a focus on second- and foreign-language writing, are especially welcome.

Other possible topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

- Academic writing
- Foreign language writing within school curricula
- Writing instruction that integrates other language skills
- Second language writing integrated with other content areas (content-based instruction and writing across the curriculum, for example)
- Emerging literacies and issues of register (including technology-enabled influences on literacies and register exerted by the proliferation of e-mail, mobile devices and messaging, as well as the rise of Facebook and blogs)
- Issues of feedback on student writing
- Research issues in writing pedagogy
- Voice and issues of empowerment
- Writing within standardized/institutional exam systems (TOEFL, GEPT, etc.)
- Writing and technology
- The composing process
