 Call for Papers

 

The Department of Languages and Education is happy to announce the Call for Papers for volume VI/2018 of the Quaderni di Dipartimento LISE/Quaderni di Linguistica dell’Università della Calabria. The theme proposed is "Development and Assessment of specialized language skills in academic contexts in accordance with the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR, Council of Europe 2001, 2017): research ideas and hands-on experiences”.

The aim of the journal is to create an occasion for scholars, educators and researchers to share ideas about research and didactics in the proposed field of study with a collaborative and innovative perspective. The Call proposes three sections which include a variety of topics to encourage the sharing of a wider range of experiences, results, and ideas:


Applying research to pedagogical practice in modern language learning

  • Language for academic and professional purposes: interaction between language, content, and academic context;
  • Discourse and interaction analysis;
  • Translation, interpretation, and mediation, experiences of intercomprehension;
  • Collaborative language learning: strategies for enhancing learners’ creative and critical thinking skills.

 

Language and cultural assessment of learners

  • Social and cultural dimensions in assessing language competence;
  • Technology and new media;
  • Assessment and self-assessment of language competence: hands-on experiences

 

Language planning and policy regarding learner assessment

·         University language certificates and international certifications;

·         European projects in higher education regarding the assessment of languages in academic contexts in accordance with the CEFR (Council of Europe 2001, 2017);

  •  Using a MOOC approach in language assessment.

 

These themes represent fundamental aspects in the global development process of learners both from a cultural and social point of view as well as from a multilingual perspective.

 

The contributions can be written in various languages, with the aim of enhancing the multicultural aspect of the journal and highlighting the wide range of cultures and communicative styles with which university communities come into contact during their everyday academic life.
