On Friday, September 22, and Saturday, September 23, 2006, faculty from the TESL/Applied Linguistics program in the Department of English hosted the fourth annual Conference on Technology for Second Language Learning. The focus this year was on learner strategies in computer-assisted language learning (CALL).

Presenters came from the University of Minnesota, Stanford University, George Washington University, New York University, Drake University, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the Universidad de Concepción, Chile, and Iowa State University.
