Call for Papers C6

Sub-Conference on Technology Enhanced Language Learning (TELL)

In response to emerging research diversity, ICCE 2019 will be a meta-conference, comprising of seven co-located theme-based sub-conferences. This is the Call for Papers for Subconference C6: Technology Enhanced Language Learning (TELL).

The rapid advancement of technology has transformed our daily lives and has provided numerous possibilities for instructional design and curriculum development. The sub-conference on Technology Enhanced Language Learning (TELL) invites submissions that focus on the rationale, theories, pedagogies, and best practices for the use of modern technologies to enhance first/second/foreign language teaching and learning. Researchers interested in novel theories and innovative practices for the integration of emerging technologies in language instruction are strongly encouraged to submit their work to the TELL sub-conference.

Through stimulating discussion among TELL scholars/practitioners, the TELL sub-conference will present the outcomes of latest research efforts in the use of technology in first/second/foreign language education, share insights into the design, development, evaluation, and enhancement of technology-enhanced language learning environments, and provide directions for future research collaborations and ongoing improvement of TELL practices. The scope of the TELL sub-conference includes but not be limited to the following topics:

  • Theoretical foundations and perspectives of TELL

  • Hardware and Software technologies applicable to TELL, such as:

      • Established and emerging TELL tools, applications, and platforms
