Call for Papers

The Call for Papers is now closed. 

The Department of Language Sciences and Foreign Literatures and the Centre for Higher Education Internationalisation of Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Milan together with the EuroCALL MALL SIG are pleased to welcome you to an international two-day symposium focusing on recent Computer-Assisted Language Learning  and Mobile-Assisted Language Learning research and future directions.

The symposium will be held at the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Milan, Italy.
The symposium will focus on the latest research and practices in technology-mediated language learning and explores perspectives for effective technology integration in language teaching and learning in various educational contexts globally. The emphasis will be on the intercultural and pedagogical opportunities that technologies and what mobile devices in particular can offer.  We will also cover the latest outcomes, challenges and limitations of these in relation to language learning, also within the perspective of the internationalisation of higher education. 

The CALL/MALL Symposium, open to researchers, practitioners, teacher educators, including doctoral students, will be held over two days, and focuses on research projects in CALL and MALL, second and foreign language teaching and learning, and virtual exchanges.
