MALL symposium at the EuroCALL 2017 conference (23 to 26 August) at the University of Southampton. 

The board members of the MALL SIG are organising a symposium for the 25th EuroCALL conference. The idea is to offer members of the MALL SIG an opportunity to share their latest findings in a meeting with a more focused theme: MALL.

Presentations for the symposium will follow the Pecha Kucha format (i.e. concise, 8 minute presentations with a maximum of 6-8 slides). Submissions must be original (not previously presented/published research) contributions, although they can be a summarised version of a paper you wish to present at the EuroCALL conference (perhaps focusing on MALL).

Submissions should address one of these topics: 
new skills, new society, new needs in education
trends in MALL: where are we headed?
learner autonomy in MALL
creativity in MALL pedagogy
student motivation and engagement in MALL
sustainability for teachers, online learners and online learning

If you are interested, please email your presentation title and a brief abstract between 150-200 words to the Chair Jaime Selwood ( by 7 February 2017.
