I’ll try to attend to international CALL (Computer Assisted Language Learning) at University of Antwerp for the next three days:
Keynote speakers Antonie Alm (University of Otago, New Zealand), Maarten Vansteenkiste (Ghent University, Belgium) and Ema Ushioda (Warwick University, United Kingdom) will provide an overview of literature on motivation, an introduction to Self-Determination Theory and a presentation of the L2 SELF model.
Here are some highlighted topics from the conference
* the impact of ICT on motivation;
* designing for motivation;
* the role of ICT in the analysis of motivation;
* the relationship between motivation and proficiency level;
* learning styles;
* teacher motivation.
