SPAN 797 - Processes in L2 Learning
In SLA, all major theoretical perspectives agree on the following coarse-grained framework: Input > Intake > Internal system > Output.  In this framework, there are several stages postulated to occur along the learning process that begins with exposure to the L2 (Input), some of which is taken in by the learner (Intake), a subset of which may be further processed and become L2 knowledge in the Internal system, which may then be produced as Output, assumed to be representative of the L2 knowledge or what has been learned (implicitly or explicitly).  However, while there is much interest and discussion of the first stage, namely, input processing or the input-to-intake stage, there is a paucity of research that has addressed empirically the processes involved during both the intake processing and output processing stages.  This seminar will critically and empirically address these processes in an effort to shine some light on learners’ processes as they occur along the learning process in SLA.  Students will be assessed by a data-based research project in addition to oral presentations and written assignments.
