Surveys/Research

You are invited to participate in the following research surveys

  • ACTIVE Online Survey: Perceptions of L2 Teaching/Learning (including ESL/EFL). I am interested  in discovering the perceptions of language-teaching professionals about the state of foreign/second language teaching and learning (including ESL/EFL). Please complete this survey at the following link: http://gocultures.com/drupal7/node/11 – it will not take very long and should provide interesting insights.  Results will be disseminated through publications in professional journals and presentations at international conferences. Thank you for your participation. No registration is necessary to respond to the survey  but please read the note on the survey form.
  • This survey is currently unavailable because of technical issues. We hope to reactivate it very soon. Online Survey of TELL/CALL Activities in Asian Contexts. This project is being conducted by Professor Dr. Andrew Lian and Associate Professor Dr. Pannathon Sangarun, both from the TELL Research Unit, School of Foreign Languages, Suranaree University of Technology (SUT), Thailand, with the support of AsiaCALL(The Asia Association of Computer-Assisted Language Learning) and The School of Foreign Languages, Suranaree University of Technology. The purpose of this project is to identify and list all projects (both research and non-research) related to TELL or CALL in Asian contexts implemented during the past five years or currently underway. All details can be found at http://gocultures.com/drupal7/node/8. Our experience has been that it is very hard to know what projects are being undertaken currently or have been undertaken recently. We are very excited to be performing this research as we believe it will make visible and publicly recognise a great deal of activity in the region and also point to future directions. Please note that you will have to join this website (fast and free) in order to participate (click login/register link in top right-hand corner of front page).
  • ACTIVE Identifying Important TELL/CALL Research issues. This project is being conducted by Professor Dr. Andrew Lian and Associate Professor Dr. Pannathon Sangarun, both from the TELL Research Unit, School of Foreign Languages, Suranaree University of Technology (SUT), Thailand. It is not unlike the survey conducted by Phil Hubbard of Stanford University in 2003 but it seeks to be more extensive in terms of its response base and it also has a special focus on the needs and perceptions of Asia. We are asking as many people as possible who are active in the field of TELL/CALL anywhere in the world to participate in this study which attempts to identify potential areas of research interest in the TELL/CALL area. While the intention of the project is to identify research areas and questions relevant to TELL/CALL in all contexts, it also seeks to identify issues relating specifically to Asian contexts. The survey consists of 3 questions and asks you to identify what you think are valuable research areas to investigate as well as specific research questions to follow up. If you do not have the time to provide exhaustive responses, just jot down the one or two questions that you feel are most important. Any information is better than nothing and will be greatly appreciated. Results will be shared in due course through a website, presentations and publications. No registration is necessary to respond to the survey. To respond, please connect to: http://gocultures.com/drupal7/node/10.
  • ACTIVE The Living History of TELL/CALL in Asia: make History by contributing personally to this exciting DIY (do-it-yourself) project in the co-construction of history. The project seeks to ensure that Asian TELL/CALL is visible, recognised and well-documented. The project is based on an original idea by Andrew Lian and Coordinated by Andrew Lian, TELL Research Unit, School of Foreign Languages, Suranaree University of Technology, Thailand, with the support of AsiaCALL(The Asia Association of Computer-Assisted Language Learning) and The School of Foreign Languages, Suranaree University of Technology.The idea is very simple. We do not yet have a consolidated record of TELL activities in Asia since they began, i.e. we do not have a history of TELL in Asia. This research project is an attempt to bring together the collective memories of those who have lived through or otherwise experienced the development of TELL in Asia since the “point of origin” (whenever and wherever that was). It will be a joint journey of (co-)discovery and (co-)construction of what will become, hopefully, a valuable historical text documenting the TELL Journey in Asia. And as we create the history together so will we grow in our understandings of each other and of the field.So.. login to the website and tell your story in your own words. Tell where it all started, who were the pioneers, what systems were developed, describe a project, write a biography, disseminate information, upload photos, summarise the growth of TELL/CALL in Asia over the years, it’s all up to you. These texts, together, will constitute a LIVING and ever-changing public document which will acknowledge your contribution.Anyone can contribute provided they are registered on the Living History website. Registration is simple and fast (click here). All contributions will be lightly moderated for appropriateness but otherwise will not be modified. Remember that this is a public website and materials will be made available to the world. Contributors will be acknowledged. Accuracy issues, where they are relevant, will be resolved over time.So… don’t delay, write a contribution now – it will all add up in the long run.
