The sub-conference on Technology Enhanced Language Learning (TELL) welcomes contributions that concern rationale, theories, pedagogies, and best practices for the use of computers for first/second/foreign language teaching and learning. This sub-conference aims to share novel theories and innovative practices for modern technology-mediated pedagogies in first/second/foreign language learning settings, and will be strongly encouraged and anticipated. The goals are to stimulate discussion among TELL scholars/practitioners about the advantage and issues of current research and practices in the use of technology in language education, and to provide insights into the design, development, and evaluation of first/second/foreign language learning environment using technology for successful language instruction.


The rapid advancement of technology has transformed our daily lives and has open many new doors for instructional designs and curriculum materials that engage language students and improve learning. The synergy resulting from this sub-conference will result in new understandings of trends and strategies that provide directions for future research collaborations, and the resulting ongoing improvement of guidance for TELL practitioners.
