University of Social Sciences in Warsaw, School of English

is happy to announce a call for papers for

*the first PL-CALL conference*

to be held on 9-10 May 2013

The new media have long become an essential part of the foreign language classroom, and Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL), once a rarity – if not an oddity – is now becoming a standard in schools. What follows is a growing interest in the research into the effectiveness of CALL as well as building bridges between the new media and traditional methodology. Such efforts, both on the part of ongoing teachers as well as academics, which have become increasingly popular worldwide, seem to be rare and dispersed in Poland. Our conference is an attempt to amend the situation in the realm of research by bringing together the results of CALL studies carried out in Poland as well as shedding light at foreign research into the new media in language education.

*Keynote speakers: *

Melinda Dooly, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona

Mirjam Hauck, Department of Languages, Open University, United Kingdom

Andreas Müller-Hartman, Pädagogische Hochschule, Heidelberg, Germany
