CALL in a climate of change: adapting to turbulent global conditions – short papers from EUROCALL 2017

Book description

2017 saw the 25th conference for the European Association of Computer-Assisted Language Learning (EUROCALL). Every year, EUROCALL serves as a rich venue to share research, practice, new ideas, and to make new international friends – and this year was no different. It is an innovative and inspiring conference in which researchers and practitioners share their novel and insightful work on the use of technology in language learning and teaching. This volume of short papers captures the pioneering spirit of the conference and you will find here both inspiration and ideas for theory and practice.
