Conference Theme: Technology-Mediated Task-based Language Teaching

Invitation for Submission of Abstracts

We invite abstract submissions from prospective presenters wishing to contribute to the program with a paper or poster on the implications of technology for pedagogic and real-world tasks for all levels of second/foreign language learning. Examples of topic areas include but are not limited to the following:

- Needs analysis taking into account the technological and linguistic demands of students’ language use
- Use of technological task features to implement theorized positive qualities (e.g., focus on form, noticing, negotiation of meaning, scaffolding, feedback)
- Evaluation concepts for investigating the use of Technology-Mediated TBLT (e.g., design-based research, theory of action)
- Learners’ perspectives in the study of Technology-Mediated TBLT
- Theoretical perspectives on communication, interaction, participation, and learning that are useful for research and practice in Technology-Mediated TBLT
- Development and evaluation of Technology-Mediated TBLT as a site for assessment of interactional competence
- Issues in developing criterion assessments of performance and learning (e.g., linguistic features, interactional moves, or task accomplishment) in Technology-Mediated TBLT
- Implications of a Technology-mediated syllabus or curriculum for assessment
- Studies of task types in Technology-mediated TBLT curriculum design

Types of Presentations

- Papers: Theory-oriented presentations or reports on completed research related to the theme of the conference. The presenter will have 20 minutes to present, followed by 10 minutes for questions and comments.

- Posters: Presentations of work in progress and research at the planning phase. All poster presenters will give a 5-minute introduction of their study to the whole audience, and will then host their posters for the rest of the session. This is a great opportunity for graduate students to discuss their research plans.

Evaluation of Proposals

Proposals will be evaluated based on their

- Contribution to theory and practice in Technology-Mediated TBLT
- Relevance to the theme of the conference
- Importance of the types of task(s) targeted
- Quality of the abstract in terms of coherence, organization and prospects for a good presentation

Prospective presenters should make their abstract submissions by April 22, 2019
. Submissions for individual papers and posters should include the presenter’s name, contact information, co-presenter’s name(s), institutional affiliation, type of presentation, title of proposal and a 250-word abstract. Acceptances will be sent by May 31.
