      Hi all--
      Sophie has invited Webheads to join this
      discussion--esp. if you are a TESOL member. I believe
      "CALL" will include online, CMC, LMSs, etc.
      This is a limited time offer, and it could be an
      important locus of ideas. You will need to sign up at
      the IATEFL Sig YG (address below) beforehand.
      Please join us!

      Online Fielded Discussion "THE FUTURE OF CALL"

      31st January � 5th February

      �Where has Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL)
      been, where is it now and where is it going?� (Bax,
      2002)


      The questions raised by Stephen Bax and other scholars
      are still very timely. Are we satisfied with the
      development that CALL has taken? How would we like
      CALL to develop in the future? Should specific areas
      be given priority in CALL-related research? The above
      questions are but a few among those which often puzzle
      our minds. What better time to discuss the future than
      at the beginning of a new year.

      Please join the IATEFL COMP-SIG and the TESOL CALL-IS
      in discussing thoughts, opinions, beliefs and hopes
      and aspirations for the future of CALL. This online
      discussion will take place on the electronic list of
      IATEFL COMP-SIG and will be fielded by Stephen Bax
      (Canterbury Christ Church University College, UK).

      The discussion will take place from 31st January to
      5th February.

      Food for thought is available at:
      http://www.iateflcompsig.org.uk/future.htm#thefutureofcall
      where Stephen Bax�s article �CALL-past, present and
      future� and Mark Warschauer�s and Deborah Healey�s
      article �Computers and Language Learning: An overview�
      are available.

      Make sure you join the IATEFL COMP-SIG list so as to
      take part in the discussion. You can join by sending a
      blank email to
      IATEFLComputerSig-subscribe@yahoogroups.com

      Looking forward to �seeing� you there and �listening�
      to what you have to say!
