L2 Journal

Call Deadline: 01-Aug-2013

Call Information:
Introducing the Teachers' Forum
Call for Papers

Since its establishment in 2009, L2 Journal has published a variety of quality research papers on different aspects of language learning and teaching, reaching a wide audience of interested scholars, educators, and students. The journal has also published several special issues on important topics in applied linguistics and second language acquisition. This Fall, we are proud to announce the introduction of a new section in the journal, Teachers' Forum, specifically geared towards language lecturers and graduate student instructors. With Rick Kern as designated editor, the Teachers' Forum will offer a platform to share brief, refereed reports on second and foreign language pedagogical activities and research.

Submissions for the Teachers' Forum should conform to the following guidelines:

-Content: curriculum design, teaching innovations, reflections on pedagogy
-Length: 3,000 words, not including bibliography, appendices, and supplementary materials
-Style: APA

Reports should be submitted online at this address: http://escholarship.org/uc/uccllt_l2. They will be fully refereed according to the following criteria: originality, clear rationale, thorough description/documentation, quality of writing, and evaluation of the activity (i.e., were the learning objectives attained and how was this assessed?)

As with the other submissions, the Teachers' Forum reports will be published on a rotating basis throughout the year. After publication, the reports will be downloadable directly and for free from the L2 Journal website.

We invite all second and foreign language teachers to submit reports and we look forward to providing a public forum for them!
