Meeting Description:

This event, funded by the UK Higher Education Academy as part of its
workshop and seminar series, will focus on evidence-based research
into advances in new and emerging digital language learning
technologies, examining creative and innovative ways to teach and
learn languages. This event will incorporate both seminar (research-
based papers) and workshop elements (hands-on practical sessions) in
order to emphasize the principle of research-informed teaching in the
area of computer-assisted language learning (CALL). The event intends
to explore synergies and continuities between a range of areas that
hold the most potential for future advances in digital language learning
and teaching, including designing online and blended language
learning, mobile learning, digital-game based learning and virtual
worlds, as well as social media assisted language learning. The event
will build on recent research in the School of Languages and
International Studies about digital natives, digital education, and task-
based language learning and teaching.
