On the Horizon:
The Future of Language Teaching and Learning Technologies

The 2012 Higher Education Edition of the Horizon Report
( is this year’s annual fall conference theme. First launched in 2002, and published annually, each Horizon Report is the culmination of the year-long effort of the New Media Consortium  and the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) to assess and report on emerging technologies and their short-term and long-term implication for teaching and learning.

For 2012 they have identified six key trends within the following time frames for adoption by institutions of higher education:

One year or less

  • Mobile apps
  • Tablet computing

Two to three years

  • Game-based learning
  • Learning analytics

Four to five years

  • Gesture-based computing
  • Internet of things

We invite faculty and technology professionals to submit proposals that address any of these key trends, especially as they relate to:

  • Research
  • Teaching practices
  • Learning environments
  • Language, culture, and digital humanities
  • Learning support services, both physical and virtual

Types of Presentations:
NERALLT seeks presentation perspectives and formats which aim to engage the audience interactively such as:

  • 30 minute individual/group presentations (not including Q&A)
  • Roundtable discussions or panels (30 minutes with a maximum of 3 presenters and 15 minutes Q & A)
  • Electronic poster sessions
  • Workshops (1-2 hours, hands-on)
  • Lightning round sessions (5 minute presentation followed by facilitated group discussion)

Instructions For Submitting An Abstract:

Please submit your proposal here. 
Submission deadline is September 4, 2012
