In August 2015, I traveled to Padova, Italy to attend the European Association for Computer Assisted Language Learning (EUROCALL) annual conference. The conference took place at the University of Padova, 45 minutes outside of Venice. The University of Padova was founded in 1222 as a school of law and is one of Italy’s leading universities. I delivered a research paper entitled “Developing Learners’ Content Knowledge and Oral Proficiency Through Digital News Stories” and participated in a workshop at the conference. I also had the honor to chair a panel session on the evaluation of computer-assisted language learning (CALL) research with a focus on how the use of digital media for virtual intercultural interaction and collaboration can help develop learners’ cross-cultural knowledge and awareness. It was very well attended.
