Digital Literacies, Computer-Assisted Language Learning, Corpus Linguistics: Intersections and Interactions
As new technology-mediated forms of interaction, learning, and meaning making have increasingly become integrated into all domains of life, from everyday to academic, foreign/second language (L2) educators and researchers have embraced the concept of Digital Literacies (DL) to frame new understandings and pedagogies. The field of CALL (Computer-assisted Language Learning) has also evolved to consider new technologies as tutors, tools, environments, and ecologies for language learning. Theoretical, methodological, and pedagogical practices have differed, even as goals align. These practices are explored in the theme of the symposium: Digital Literacies and Technology-Enhanced Language Learning: Interdisciplinary Intersections and Interactions.

Registration is free, but it is required for access to all of the presentations. See details on the symposium website.
This year's international L2DL symposium is co-convened with AZCALL, a conference that brings together CALL researchers and practitioners from across the region. The joint symposium is sponsored by the Center for Educational Resources in Culture, Language and Literacy (CERCLL) with a grant from the U.S. Department of Education, and supported by various units at the University of Arizona and Arizona State University (listed on the website).
