Meeting Description:

The IRIS team is pleased to host a two-day series of invited colloquia and poster presentations. The conference brings together researchers working across diverse areas of second language research, to address questions relating to particular data elicitation techniques, including:

- What sorts of data emerge from using this technique/tool/instrument?
- What are some of the methodological challenges of using this particular elicitation technique or approach to collecting data?
- How do such challenges impact theory, findings, or research designs?
- Are there recent innovations, developments, or refinements of this tool or approach?
- Do any other kinds of measures / instruments / tests contribute to our understanding of the use of this elicitation tool?
