Meeting Description:

EUROCALL, since its establishment in 1993 supported by the European Commission, has brought together researchers, developers and practitioners sharing a passion for languages and using emerging technologies in language teaching and learning.

The theme of EUROCALL 2017 is ‘CALL in a Climate of Change: Adapting to Turbulent Global Conditions.’

This theme encompasses the notion of how Computer-assisted Language Learning (CALL) responds to changing global circumstances (in economic, political or environmental spheres), which impact on education. The theme cuts across areas including teacher training, competitive education models, open education, blended learning models, collaboration, creative and innovative pedagogy, student engagement, student's needs and sustainability.

The EUROCALL 2017 conference will discuss and discover insights into how the theories and practices of CALL are driving, responding to and facilitating change in the world around us.
