Qs: Worldwide Survey on Open Language Learning

Editor for this issue: Zac Smith <zaclinguistlist.org>


We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.cfm.

We would like to invite language teachers worldwide to fill in this Two-
Minute Survey on Open Language Learning:
http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/DPJ689W.

This survey is part of a research project by Jozef Colpaert, University
of Antwerp, and Glenn Stockwell, Waseda University, Tokyo, aiming at
identifying factors which might impact on the use of Open Educational
Resources in the Language Learning and Teaching Community
worldwide.

Open Educational Resources (OER) can be defined as “digital
materials that can be re-used for teaching, learning, research and
more, made available for free through open licenses, which allow uses
of the materials that would not be easily permitted under copyright
alone” (www.wikipedia.org).

The results of this survey will be sent to all participants who provide
their email address. They will also be presented at the EuroCall SIG
meeting on Open Educational Resources in Bologna (29-30 March
2012), the XVth International CALL Research Conference in Taiwan
(25-27 May 2012), the CALICO 2012 conference at Notre Dame
University, and will be published in Computer Assisted Language
Learning. The data will also be made available as Open Research Data
for researchers worldwide.

We apologize for the fact that this survey is only available in English.
Please forward this invitation to as many language teachers as
possible.
