The Bandung International Conference on Language & Education

Call for Papers

The Bandung International Conference on Language & Education - jointly organised every two years by Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB), the British Council in Indonesia and the University of Leeds (UK) – explore issues of topical concern to language specialists and language educators in Indonesia. They also attract significant numbers of participants from other parts of the world.

THE 11th BICOLE - the Eleventh Bandung International Conference on Language & Education - focuses on Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in Language Studies. It does this through five sub-themes:

  • E-learning and teaching (What are the benefits and drawbacks of using ICT to learn and teach languages?)
  • Social media in learning and teaching (Do social media really have a role to play in language studies?)
  • Corpus analysis and the language curriculum (How can corpus-based analysis give us a better understanding of the language which we are studying or teaching?)
  • E-teacher development (Can teachers’ competences be developed through ICT? How?)
  • Online language testing (We are already familiar with online IELTS and TOEFL. What are the limitations and strengths of online language testing?)

What makes the Bandung International Conference on Language & Education special?

  • Relevance: BICOLE always focuses on a topic which is of current importance in Indonesia.
  • Focus: The theme of each conference is reflected in every presentation. Papers not related to the conference theme are not accepted.
