4th DiE Days speakers and facilitators

And the 4th Drama in Education Days in Konstanz are history already! For “appetizers” we had asked our speakers and workshop leaders if they have any drama in education articles, books or videos in English or German that they would like to let us know about and featured them in our Facebook group. Here’s a summary (we actually had more speakers but not everyone had articles in English or German).  Continue reading

Call for contributions: Body, Voice and Language Learning in Higher Education

Body, Voice and Language Learning in Higher Education – Call for papers

The journal Researching and Teaching Languages for Specific Purposes publishes the results of research carried out in the domain of language teaching and learning in Higher Education, for all languages and cultures. Since its beginnings it has been oriented towards both theoretical and applied research while maintaining a pedagogical dimension through the publication of notes on teaching experiences in each issue.

The journal has four main objectives. The first is to encourage the publication of research carried out in the field of teaching and learning languages in Higher Education. The second objective is to contribute to the training of teachers of languages for special purposes by publishing research results and notes on teaching experiences. From the beginning, the third objective has been to encourage the teaching and learning of all foreign languages. Even though most articles are written in French and English, they deal with the teaching and learning of different languages. The fourth objective is to promote young researchers. The journal is recognized for encouraging new authors and, thanks to its wide circulation, allows young researchers to be introduced to the academic community.

Volume 37, number 2, to be published in June 2018, will adress the key question of “Body, Voice and Language Learning in Higher Education”. We welcome all contributions written in either English or French.

Submissions to our journal are peer-reviewed. They must follow fall within one of the four following categories:

  • research articles (25 000 to 40 000 characters altogether, spaces not included);
  • reports (10 000 to 20 000 characters altogether, spaces not included;
  • notes on teaching experiences (8000 to 15 000 characters altogether, spaces not included);
  • book reviews (8000 to 15 000 characters altogether, spaces not included).

Deadline for proposals is October, 30th 2017.

Please send your submission to: apliut@revues.org and linda.terrier@univ-tlse2.fr.
