Conference theme 2020

The EUROCALL 2020 conference theme is CALL for Widening Participation

The theme embraces the role of CALL in addressing the challenges and opportunities of a learner population that continues to diversify across educational and cultural contexts.  The theme also encompasses the role of CALL in widening access to informal language learning – in the (virtual) classroom, on the move, in the wild, thus widening the notion of the learning environment.

We welcome proposals addressing the theme from both theoretical and practical perspectives in relation to the many forms and contexts of CALL. We particularly welcome longitudinal studies or studies that revisit earlier studies. Submissions may include, but are not restricted to:

  • Assessment and feedback
  • Corpora and language learning
  • Formal and informal learning
  • Gamification and virtual reality
  • Intercultural learning
  • Learning analytics
  • Mobile-Assisted Language Learning
  • Open educational resources and practices
  • Pedagogy and didactic designs
  • Research trends in CALL
  • Social inclusion
  • Sustainability
  • Teacher education and professional development
  • Telecollaboration and CMC
