Globalization and Localization in CALL 2010

1 – 3 December 2010, Le Meridian Hotel, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia

The Globalization and Localization in Computer-Assisted Language Learning (GLoCALL) Conference aims to share knowledge, research and experience on how to use computer technology to make language learning more effective and pleasant; to explore how the technology can be adapted to better meet the local needs of students and teachers, while at the same time providing global perspectives on computer-assisted language learning (CALL); and to bring the technology within the reach of local teachers who wish to develop their professionalism in CALL. GLoCALL is jointly organised by APACALL (Asia-Pacific Association for Computer-Assisted Language Learning), PacCALL.(Pacific Association for Computer-Assisted Language Learning) and a local host.
