As new technology-mediated forms of interaction, learning, and meaning making have increasingly become integrated into all domains of life, from everyday to academic, foreign language educators and researchers have embraced the concept of Digital Literacies to frame new understandings and pedagogies. At the same time, the field of CALL (Computer-assisted Language Learning) has also evolved to consider new technologies as tutors, tools, environments, and ecologies for language learning. Theoretical, methodological, and pedagogical practices have differed, even as goals align.

Building on the successes of the 2014 symposium, this year’s L2DL symposium, Digital Literacies and Technology-Enhanced Language Learning: Interdisciplinary Intersections and Interactions, will be co-convened with AZ-CALL, a conference that brings together CALL researchers and practitioners from across the region. The joint symposium will be sponsored by CERCLL (the Center for Educational Resources in Culture, Language and Literacy) with support from units at the University of Arizona and Arizona State University.

On October 8 there will be live webcast and in-person events, including several panels and keynotes by Heather Lotherington of York University and Steve Thorne of Portland State University/University of Groningen. Digital presentations will be hosted online during the week of October 3 – October 8. Asynchronous fora (discussion threads) will allow for question-and-answer for the entire week, and presenters may conduct synchronous chat at designated times as well. Details on formatting, hosting, and submitting final presentations will be provided to accepted presenters. Presentations from the 2014 event may be viewed here.

Research studies, theoretical discussions, and exemplary practices are all equally welcome. While the special theme of the joint symposium is “Interdisciplinary Intersections and Interactions”, presentations need not address both DL and CALL, and may focus on a topic in one area. These might include, but are not limited to:
