Language Learning in Higher Education


Journal of CercleS

(European Confederation of Language Centres in Higher Education)

Special Issue


Enhancing the Role of European University Language Centres: past achievements and future perspectives

Call for Papers

The European Confederation of Language Centres in Higher Education - CercleS - is pleased to announce the Call for Papers for a Special Issue of the LLHE Journal, the aim of which is to celebrate the approaching 30th anniversary of CERCLES (1991-2021).

The aim of this LLHE Special Issue is to create an occasion for language scholars, professionals and practitioners to share ideas about research and didactics relating to language development which stems from the input CercleS has created over the years. The Special Issue wants to offer the opportunity for a collaborative debate which will involve the many members of the Associations of Language Centres in Europe who, thanks to their varied working and geographical backgrounds, will inform the community of language professionals about past and present experiences and thus enrich the overall discussion. It is, indeed, CercleS’ wish to embrace a number of different perspectives in order to promote in-depth reflection on issues relating to the well-being of University Language Centres and the development of language competences among the generations of students and the population in general.

Critical thinking is a concept of paramount importance for learners’ global development, both from a cultural and social point of view as well as from a linguistic and multilingual perspective. CercleS strongly believes that it is the duty of language scholars and professionals never to forget the role that languages have in society and the role that University Language Centres play in language acquisition and learning. Moreover, CercleS is aware of the many achievements that, within the European context, have been reached throughout the years and the numerous efforts which have been made in order to shed light on the relevance linguistic issues have within academic contexts and, more broadly, within society. Thus, this LLHE Special Issue wants both to acknowledge the successes of CercleS and also envision future goals.   

Articles and activity reports addressing the themes highlighted below would be most welcome. They can be written in English, French, German. The aim is to enhance the multilingual aspect of the issue, which wants to emphasize the wide range of cultures and communication styles that practitioners in University Language Centres come into contact with during their academic life. Experiences will therefore be considered from a European perspective and beyond, thus providing participants with insights that should help reinforce the concept of belonging to a community of practice that crosses geographical boundaries.

Themes have been chosen to include wide areas which have favoured important changes in the fields of Language Centres’ management and organization, language learning and research, language teaching. Such areas foster significant debate on how languages naturally interweave with changes and development in the current world. They are intentionally broad so as to encourage the sharing of a wider range of backgrounds, findings, expertise, ideas and discussions:

University Language Centres within an international perspective

  • Language planning and policy in the academic world
  • Management, administration and daily life of University Language Centres: strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats
  • University Language Centres and Internationalization issues
  • European projects in higher education
  • University Language Centres and Learners’ Internships
  • Quality assurance in University Language Centres

University Language Centres and Research within a changing society: achievements and future perspectives

  • Discourse and interaction analysis
  • Bilingualism, plurilingualism and translanguaging in higher education
  • Translation, interpretation and mediation
  • Intercomprehension and the challenge of sharing experiences with refugees
  • Social and cultural dimensions of language acquisition and use

University Language Centres and Didactic issues: best practices and ideas for the future

  • Languages for academic and professional contexts
  • Language and Content for learners’ intercultural growth
  • Autonomous Learning, European Language Portfolios and the new CEFR challenges (2001-2018)
  • Integrated approaches in language learning: the gradual move from frontal and formal teaching to humanistic approaches and collaborative learning
  • Creativity in language learning and teaching: strategies for fostering creative and critical thinkers
  • Academic oriented assessment and international certifications
  • Language, technology and new media.

If you are interested in any of the topics highlighted above and want to share your ideas, please submit an article or activity report in English, French or German. Please specify the set of topics to which you would like to refer.
