Invitation to potential contributors to a themed issue of Open Learning on the distance teaching of languages

It is proposed to produce a special, themed issue of Open Learning, The Journal of Open and Distance Learning, in 2003 on the distance teaching of languages. The idea behind this special issue is to encourage and stimulate a substantial body of contributions which will develop and inform potential teachers of languages at a distance in higher education across the world.

Initial ideas for articles include

The co-editors of this special issue are Cynthia White, from the School of Language Studies at Massey University in New Zealand and Monica Shelley of the Institute of Educational Technology at the Open University in the United Kingdom.

If you are interested in contributing to this themed issue, we would need, at this stage, a working title and a brief abstract of 80-120 words. We would also appreciate a few lines of biographical data. The closing date for expressions of interest is January 15, 2002.

For all enquiries and further details please contact the co-editors
