Virtually Connecting at #Eurocall 2017

We’re checking into the conversations at Eurocall 2017 with onsite buddy Teresa MacKinnon. You can join into these conversations by signing up using this form.

The annual Eurocall conference is the main event for those involved in computer-assisted language learning (CALL) in and beyond Europe. This year it is being held in the United Kingdom, where it is hosted by Southampton University, formerly the home of the Languages, Linguistics and Area Studies (LLAS) the home of the subject network for languages in UK HEIs. This year’s conference theme is CALL in a climate of change and this coincides with a very turbulent period in language provision in the UK. The programme is full of lots of evidence of a vibrant and active community with a good deal of ground breaking research into digital technology uses in the language teaching community. Conference tracks including PhD research,  Mobile Assisted Language Learning (MALL), Computer-Mediated Language Learning (CMC) and teacher education.
