CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS
TALC96 - TEACHING AND LANGUAGE CORPORA
Lancaster University, UK, 9th-12th August, 1996
INCLUDED IN THIS EMAIL:
AIMS OF THE CONFERENCE
While the use of computer text corpora in research is now well
established, they are now being used increasingly for teaching
purposes. This includes the use of corpus data to inform and create
teaching materials; it also includes the direct exploration of corpora
by students, both in the study of linguistics and of foreign
languages. Talc96 will build upon the success of Talc94, which brought
together researchers and teachers who are involved in such work, to
take part in an international exchange of current experience and
KEY THEME: Talc96 will have a special focus on evaluating the claims
made for corpora in linguistics and language teaching.
OTHER THEMES: which the conference is expected to cover include -
1.) The use of corpora in student led learning and investigation.
2.) Software for corpus based language and linguistics learning.
3.) Developing corpora for teaching purposes.
4.) The exploitation of corpus based teaching and learning materials.
5.) The theory and practice of corpus based teaching and learning.
Papers presented at the conference will be of the typical 20 minutes
talk plus ten minutes of questions format.
Talc96 will also host several workshops related to teaching and
language corpora. To give an example of what those workshops may be,
Talc94 had a variety of workshops such as "Multilingual Corpus
Building" and "Concordancing and Corpus Retrieval". Workshops will be
of one to two hour duration.
