Conference Announcements

CLLC 2018

Conference on language, learning, and Culture

Fri, 06 Apr 2018 – Sat, 07 Apr 2018

In focusing on “Making Research Matter,” CLLC 2018 seeks to stimulate conversations on how research and its uses in society might be transformed if more of us were to make a point of asking “for what, for whom, and by whom?”* at the outset of every research endeavor.

Our aim is to involve a diverse group of practitioners, researchers, policy-makers, community members, and other stakeholders in a multidirectional sharing of perspectives, values, priorities, and expertise. We especially welcome proposals involving projects in which the investigators considered the users and uses of their research from the very beginning and made decisions accordingly—from action-research projects conducted by individual teachers in their classrooms to larger-scale funded endeavors where collaborative teams had an eye toward wider public engagement and policy impacts, and everything in between.

Proposals for paper and poster presentations, workshops, practice-oriented sessions, colloquia, and panel discussions are invited until December 4, 2017. Please consult the call for proposals for more information.

 

The Conference on Language, Learning, and Culture (CLLC) 2018 centers on the question, how might research and its uses in society be transformed if more of us were to make a point of asking “for what, for whom, and by whom?”* at the outset of every research endeavor?

In focusing on Making Research Matter, CLLC 2018 aims to involve a diverse group of practitioners, researchers, policy-makers, community members, and other stakeholders in a multidirectional sharing of perspectives, values, priorities, and expertise. We hope this interaction will put all of us in a stronger position to engage in Motivated Inquiry for Actionable Insights and, as Ortega (2012) puts it, to “strengthen the social value and educational relevance of the investigations we choose to pursue.”

CALL FOR PROPOSALS

Proposals for paper and poster presentations, practice-oriented sessions, workshops, colloquia, and panel discussions are invited in areas related to the conference theme. We especially seek examples of projects in which the investigators considered the users and uses of their research from the very beginning and made decisions accordingly—that is, projects in which questions regarding the purposes, potential applications, agents, and/or beneficiaries of the research played a prominent role in their conceptualization, design, and analysis, as well as in the dissemination and use of the findings. These might range from action-research projects conducted by individual teachers in their classrooms to larger-scale funded endeavors where collaborative teams of investigators had an eye toward wider public engagement and policy impacts.

We hope that this year’s conference will yield insights, tools, and connections that improve all groups’ abilities to formulate meaningful research questions; identify collaborators; establish research-practice partnerships; maximize benefits to research participants; produce results that are relevant and accessible to a variety of audiences; and ensure that findings are not over-, under-, or misinterpreted in public conversations and policy debates. As an extended community, we can all work together to enhance educational policies and practices related to language, learning, and culture.
