Call for paper


The conference will explore three main phenomena:

  • MOOCs as a challenging model within the related fields of formal education, lifelong learning and non-formal training, its use in language learning and its impact worldwide;
  • innovation in language teaching and learning methodology in an increasingly multilingual society;
  • self-directed learning and the support MOOCs and other tools and resources (e.g. videos from YouTube) can provide to encourage it.

We invite proposals including research-related papers, presentations of case studies and projects as well as posters on the subject of LMOOCs (Language MOOCs), including language learning and teaching with MOOCs; OER/OEP for language learning and teaching; MOOCs and student mobility; and initiatives and developments linked to these fields supported by European and national programmes.


All papers will be peer-reviewed by independent, anonymous expert referees for their inclusion at the Collection of the MOOC2MOVE Conferences proceedings, to be published at HAL (, an open-access repository run by the Centre pour la communication scientifique directe, which is part of the CNRS (French National Centre for Scientific Research).
