For Arts & Humanities fields

University of Jyväskylä is holding the 4th international conference Thinking, doing, learning: Usage based perspectives on second language learning on June 17-19, 2019.
The aim of TDL is to advance our understanding of what it means to take a usage-based approach to L2 learning and L2 research. The university invites researchers to explore a wide variety of questions related to language usage, language learning, and cognition, such as what it means to interact in L2 in the society, how speakers accomplish social actions in moment-to-moment sense-making activities, and what is the nature of language use environments as well as sediments of usage events left as “acquired linguistic constructions” in the individual language learner. This variety of questions involves strong, empirical and theoretical considerations of language, learning, and cognition:
- what is language – constructions or interactional competence?
-what is learning – social action or long-term portability? what is cognition – an individual property or a socially distributed phenomenon?, and
-what are the implications for L2 teaching? Detailed information about the conference, important dates, keynote speakers and registration is available at https://www.jyu.fi/en/congress/tdl2019
