The Center for Research on English Language Learning and Teaching (CRELLT) is pleased to announce an invited guest lecture by:
Johannes Wagner (University of Southern Denmark)
"Interaction Design for Language Learning in the Wild"
Description: The paper gives a short introduction to recent research on learning a second language outside of classroom environments in the L2 society. The paper will discuss interactional practices in everyday mundane interaction in which learning can be observed, reflect the relation to classroom and teaching material, and will present ‘cultural probes’ as an elicitation technique for designing resources for language learners.
Johannes Wagner is professor of Communication in the Department of Design and Communication at the University of Southern Denmark. In his work in Applied Linguistics he has pushed for a microsociological understanding of second language learning and teaching practices. His latest edition (2013) is Conversation Analysis and Applied Linguistics, a volume of the The Encyclopedia of Applied Linguistics (general editor C.A. Chapelle) (with Kristian Mortensen). In recent years he has been working on a comprehensive understanding of human social praxis as the nexus of verbal interaction, embodied practices and tangible objects in the environment (social-objects.net). He is currently editing a volume on Longitudinal Studies in Conversation Analysis (with Simona Pekarek-Doehler and Esther González-Martínez).
