One week to go!

One week to go to the start of the EUROCALL 2011 conference at the University of Nottingham, beginning with a whole day of workshops on Wednesday, 31 August, followed by a full programme of plenary keynote presentations and parallel sessions. Full details of the programme can be found at the EUROCALL 2011 conference website.

We are pleased to welcome three distinguished keynote speakers:

Mike Sharples, University of Nottingham, who will speak on the topic
“Phone CALL: incidental language learning with mobile technologies”.

Gillian McLaughlin, European Commission, who will speak on the topic
“The CALL triangle: a European perspective”.

Gary Motteram, University of Manchester, who will speak on the topic
“The changing role of technology in language education in the early 21st century”.

The three keynotes and the Round Table Discussion on Saturday, 3 September, 11:30-12:30, will be streamed live and subsequently archived, and there will be online coverage of the remainder of the conference via this blog. As in previous years, we will be using a CoveritLive window that will provide a running commentary by conference participants on the parallel sessions and other conference activities. Twitter will be used to feed tweets containing the hashtag #eurocall2011 into the CoveritLive window. Our Twitter account is @Eurocall2011 and we also maintain EUROCALL groups on Facebook and LinkedIn:


Have a look at last year’s conference blog to see how the CoveritLive window for Day 4 of EUROCALL 2010 looked. As you can see, the commentary can be replayed.

Looking forward to seeing you face-to-face or online at EUROCALL 2011!
