The 2017 Second Language Research Forum is an important international conference taking place at OSU this October 12-15. This year's theme, "Growing Connections in Second Language Research" focuses on links between disciplines and traditions, from sociolinguistic, psycholinguistic, and neurocognitive approaches to computer mediated communication. Collaboration can lead to rich insights and facilitate a better understanding of the problematics at play in second language teaching, learning, and use. Interdisciplinarity of this sort is beginning to bridge the gaps amongst methodologies and make it easier to promote understanding of how languages are learned.
This four-day conference will include plenary talks by well-known scholars including Dr. Lourdes Ortega, Dr. Kara Morgan-Short, Dr. Brian MacWhinney, and Dr. Patricia Duff.
