Call for Papers: 9th International Conference on Task-based Language Teaching Grants 2022 Award for a Representative from Sub-Saharan Africa
31st January 2022.
The IATBLT is very happy to announce that Rod Ellis – who received the 2021 TBLT Distinguished Achievement Award – has graciously offered to donate the award money back to the IATBLT with the wish that the IATBLT would use it to support a representative from Sub-Saharan Africa to attend the TBLT 2022 conference.
Under the auspices of the International Association for Task-Based Language Teaching (IATBLT), the 2022 TBLT organizing committee is looking forward to welcoming you to the 9th International Conference on Task-Based Language Teaching in Innsbruck, Austria. The conference will be a face-toface event, in accordance with current COVID 19 safety regulations. Be assured that we are keeping a close eye on the circumstances and will make appropriate decisions regarding the conference in line with the most up-to-date information.
From 29 to 31 August 2022, the conference will bring together scholars and educators from all around the world who are interested in discussing both established and innovative approaches to TBLT. Inspired by the surrounding mountains, the conference will encourage us to both strengthen our understanding of the solid grounds of TBLT and to reach for new summits by “Widening the Horizon of Task-Based Language Teaching”.
The conference will focus on well-established TBLT approaches in second and foreign language classrooms as well as on transferring TBLT to other educational contexts and subjects including science education. Furthermore, task-based assessment and its implication for the (language) testing community will be addressed. The plenary speakers will touch on Second Language Acquisition and TBLT, the Teacher Variable in TBLT, as well as on vocational skill learning in aboriginal educational contexts and diversity in the second/foreign language classroom. Research-based, theory-driven and hands-on contributions to the advancement of TBLT are welcomed.
Relevant themes include but are not limited to:
• Tasks in SLA
• Tasks in (language) education
• Task-based assessment
• Theoretical perspectives on TBLT
• Sociocultural aspects of TBLT
• Task features, complexity, design
• TBLT methodology

• Technology-mediated TBLT
• Tasks and the role of the learner
