The JALT CALL Journal is one of the leading peer-reviewed international CALL journals and is published three times per year. Following on from its very successful conference last week, which saw 126 presentations from nine countries, it is now publishing a special issue on the topic of 'CALL and the Learner'.
We are inviting contributions in one of the following areas:
Learner motivation Computer-mediated communication (with a focus on the role of the learner) Learners' beliefs in CALL (Materials development for) individualising instruction Social networking and computer games and second language acquisition Mobile-assisted language learning Supporting out-of-class language learning Teacher education for CALL
Submitted papers will need to make a link with the theme of the special issue which ties in with that of the AILA Research Network for CALL and the Learner, which was recently launched. More information about the network and its background can be found here: www.callandthelearner.info
Prospective authors are encouraged to read the information about the aims and scope of the network in order to ensure their contributions fit with this theme.
