35th Second Language Research Forum
Thirty Years of Instructional SLA: Learning, Instruction, Learning, and Outcome
September 22-25, 2016

With its longstanding commitment to teaching and learning research and practice, Teachers College, Columbia University is proud to host the 35th Second Language Research Forum (SLRF) with a particular focus on Instructed Second Language Acquisition (ISLA). We hope to bring together students, teachers, and researchers to share, question, and reflect on past and current research, and more importantly, on the future of ISLA and its transdisciplinary relevance, especially to second and foreign language teaching.
 
Join us in September in New York City for one of the most prestigious conferences in second language teaching and learning

Confirmed plenary speakers:

  • Dr. Michael Long
  • Dr. Rod Ellis
  • Dr. Heidi Byrnes
  • Dr. Roy Lyster

Host SLRF 2017

Meta-analysis in Instructed L2 Research
by Dr. Luke Plonsky

Early Bird Registration

Submit a Proposal

We cordially invite proposal submissions that seek to provide a nuanced, rather than black-and-white, understanding of instructional efficacy in SLA in light of complex questions such as: Which aspects of language are susceptible (or not) to which type of instruction to which learner(s) and at which stage of learner language development? As we look forward to facilitating a candid discussion on the theme of the conference, Thirty Years of ISLA: Learning, Instruction, Learning, and Outcome, we especially welcome the following:

  • Longitudinal case or cross-sectional studies invoking elicited data and/or naturalistic data analyzed qualitatively and/or quantitatively
  • Research syntheses (narrative reviews and meta-analyses are both encouraged)
  • Replications of published studies
  • Studies on the internal validity of the research methodology

Submission deadline: May 15, 2016
