"CALL Research Perspectives" creates a foundation for the study and
practice of computer-assisted language learning and provides an overview of
ways to conceptualize and to conduct research in CALL. Its core assumptions
are that all approaches to research have a place, and that researchers,
teachers, and students all have a role to play in the study of
computer-enhanced language learning.
This is not a how-to-do-research text. Written by top researchers in the
field, it offers an open-ended view of what educators need to know and be
able to do to answer questions that they have. It is intended to be easy to
read, to provide resources for readers to explore the ideas further, and to
be non-prescriptive in presenting suggestions for CALL research.
