The 2021 Chicago Language (Virtual) Symposium: Call for Proposals

​​​​​​​​Peer Collaboration and Second Language Learning: Innovations and Reflections

​April 17, 2021
DePaul University


Call for Proposals

Proposals are sought for sessions on Saturday. Presentations can be based on either successful teaching practice or a research project that entails pedagogical applications. The theme of this symposium is on peer collaboration and second language learning. Research shows that students are not only learning from language experts like their instructors. They can also learn from working with their peers inside and outside the classroom. The 2021 symposium will explore how we can harness the power of peer collaboration by facilitating and guiding students’ learning with peers who are either peer students with similar or higher language proficiency or native speaker peers.

Topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • peer interaction and classroom tasks
  • peer interaction and language proficiency development
  • peer interaction and assessment
  • teacher’s role in classroom-based peer collaboration
  • peer tutoring in a foreign language program
  • intercultural language partner collaboration
  • technology use in peer collaboration/teletandem

Submit your proposal

Please submit your proposal through the 2021 Chicago Language Symposium site.
All languages are welcome.

Proposal submission deadline: February 15, 2021.
