Conference Theme

Crossing Boundaries:

The Geographical and Intellectual Diffusion of Technology for Language Learning

Technology serves as a bridge that crosses historically constructed boundaries between second language teaching and other disciplines. It has created an unprecedented level of interconnection between language learning researchers and language teaching classrooms. It also provides the affordances to connect language teachers throughout the world in mutually beneficial interactions and expanded educational circles.

At the 15th Annual TSLL conference, we will highlight, explore, and celebrate the multifaceted ways that the spread of technology internationally and disciplinarily prompts new paths for inquiry and education. We look back on 15 years of research and development of technologies for second language learning from previous TSLL conferences as a springboard for boundary-crossing work of the future.
