 _Concepts and Practice of Network-Based Language Teaching_
 Mark Warschauer, University of Hawaii at Manoa
 Richard Kern, University of California at Berkeley

We are submitting a proposal to Cambridge University Press Applied
Linguistics Series (series editors Michael Long and Jack Richards) for
an edited volume on the concepts and practice of computer
network-based language teaching (i.e., involving the Internet, local
area networks, or other forms of electronic communication).

It is intended that the book will be solidly based on second language
acquisition theory and research and that its principle audience will
be faculty and graduate students (e.g., as a text in graduate courses
in applied linguistics, TESOL, and foreign language education).

We are seeking two types of chapter submissions:

(1) Critical analyses of the concepts of network-based teaching as
they relate to aspects of language acquistion theory or educational
theory (for example, consideration of relationships of network-based
language teaching to cognitive, psycholinguistic, sociolinguistic,
sociocultural, literary, or critical pedagogical theories).

(2) Theoretically-grounded empirical studies of the practice of
network-based teaching. Chapters on classroom practice should include
a review of the literature, a detailed description of the research
methods used, an in-depth analysis and discussion of the data, and
implications for teaching and future research. Analyses can be
qualititative or quantitative, and can explore multiple types of
variables (e.g., process, product, cognitive, social, affective,

graduate students, and interested teachers. We are looking forward to
hearing from you and to receiving your abstracts.
