DISSERTATIONS ON TECHNOLOGY AND L2 LEARNING (2000-2013)
Paginated PDF Version

This list has been updated with an eye towards providing working links to actual dissertation texts. Permanent links available free of charge through university databases have been privileged; for-profit enterprises that sell dissertation manuscripts have been listed when universities do not provide for the electronic dissemination of these documents. Manuscripts that are not available by either of these means are nevertheless listed as we hope to provide the most complete coverage of dissertations in the field of CALL that is possible.

You will notice that the reference list style is somewhat different than what is suggested by APA. We decided upon a format that includes the name of the institution where the dissertation was completed such that a quick scan of the list reveals where people are studying CALL related themes—and which universities are field leaders in terms of freely distributing dissertations. If you notice that dissertations completed at your institution have not been included, please send us the references, so we can update this list with every issue.

We gratefully acknowledge the assistance of Amin Dehghan, PhD Candidate and Research Assistant at King Mongkut's University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT) in Bangkok, Thailand, in updating this list for the October, 2014, issue.
