Meeting Description:

The second international conference on Constructionist Approaches to Language Pedagogy (CALP 2) will take place at the University of Basel, Switzerland, on June, 10 and 11, 2016.

After the successful event of CALP 1 at the University of Brussels in November 2013, this second conference will specifically focus on usage-based foundations of L2 pedagogy, that is, on the intersections of usage-based (second) language acquisition research and constructionist approaches to (second) language learning, teaching, and assessment.

The conference themes will include theoretical and empirical perspectives on (1) input and interaction, (2) implicit and explicit (second) language learning and teaching, and (3) individual differences (in the domains of aptitude, motivation, or cognition), as well as implications for (second) language assessment.

The call for papers will follow shortly through Linguist List.

Lourdes Ortega, Georgetown University, Washington, DC
Ewa Dabrowska, Northumbria University, Newcastle-upon-Tyne


Karin Madlener & Heike Behrens, University of Basel
Catherine Diederich, Florent Pérek & Julia Vögelin, University of Basel
