Edited Volume (with Susanne Rott): Understanding Vocabulary Learning and Teaching: Implications for Language Program Development

Goal: This volume aims to provide language program directors and language teachers with the means to translate our current understanding of the processing, learning, long-term retention, and use of vocabulary into curricular decisions and classroom materials. It will address questions, such as the following: How should teachers select, organize, present and explain new L2 vocabulary? How should they engage learners in repeated practice and use of vocabulary? How should they test vocabulary knowledge and usage? The volume will include theoretical contributions, empirical studies, as well as pedagogical interventions. Abstract submission deadline is January 31; chapter submission deadline is June 15, 2017.

Introduction to and overview of the book "Understanding Vocabulary Learning and Teaching: Implications for Language Program Development". Vocabulary acquisition is an indispensable part of second language acquisition. It is crucial in the development of overall language proficiency and sub-skills, such as listening, reading, speaking, and writing. This book presents theoretical frameworks and research findings to a broad audience that extends beyond researchers who work in the field of vocabulary acquisition. The nine chapters in the collection provide insights into vocabulary learning mechanisms and discuss how these are relevant for effective language learning and teaching, material and textbook design, and curriculum development. They are intended to spark reflection and discussion among researchers, language program directors, teachers, and graduate students, and thereby contribute to the implementation of research-informed practices in curriculum design, material development, and the teaching and learning of second language vocabulary.
