EDUCATIONAL ROLE OF LANGUAGE NETWORK – scope
MAIN IDEA. Prompted by the ERL I 2016 and ERL II 2017 Conferences, we have been constructing a platform supporting cooperation between academics working on issues at the intersection of pedagogy and language. We hope to build a world-wide circle of researchers aiding one another on a regular basis. One of the aims of the ERL conferences is to provide room for live meetings of these academics.
PARTICIPATING CIRCLE. So far, 92 academics from 26 states (Australia, Bulgaria, Denmark, England, Florida, Greece, Hawaii, Hungary, Iceland, Japan, Kenya, Lithuania, Northern Ireland, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Republic of South Africa, Romania, Scotland, Serbia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, Vietnam, Wales) have joined (by filling in a participant form available on our conference website). Some of them participated in ERL I and ERL II, whilst others we hope to meet at ERL III.
EDUCATIONAL ROLE OF LANGUAGE NETWORK - activity
On a wider scale: FUNDED PROJECTS. Through regular collaboration, the ERL Network aims at joint grant applications in the interdisciplinary field of linguistics and education (GRANTS). Ideas have been shared and discussed via a shared SPREADSHEET (to request access, please write at firstname.lastname@example.org).
On a narrower scale: SHARED RESEARCH. The other objective of the ERL Network is to spark shared research by individual academics and/or small teams within the circle. For this purpose, an open-access TOOLBOX has been developed. In order to put an item on the list and in this way find a colleague keen to cooperate with you on it, please write at email@example.com.
