GERT call for papers

Post by Jonathan Robie »

Randall Tan just posted this call for papers:

The Global Education and Research Technology (GERT) section is planning 4 sessions for SBL Atlanta, Nov 21-24, 2015. A session on text categorization and authorship attribution of the Hebrew Scriptures will be organized by Joshua Berman, Bar Ilan University, Israel, with invited speakers. We welcome proposals for the following 3 sessions:
  • 1. Teaching the Bible with Technology. Academic Teaching and Biblical Studies (ATBS) and GERT are sponsoring a joint session on Teaching the Bible with Technology. We are seeking 10-minute presentations in which presenters demonstrate how a technology could be used in the classroom. The emphasis is on the demonstration aspect of the presentation so that participants can visualize how to implement the technology being showcased. Whether it relates to Twitter, blogs, webcams, Oculus Rift, software, audience response systems, or other technologies, we welcome actual cases of specific technologies that improve student learning.
    2. Computer-Aided Language Acquisition for Greek and Hebrew. Applied Linguistics for Biblical Languages (ALBL) and GERT are sponsoring a joint session on Computer-Aided Language Acquisition for Greek and Hebrew. The emphasis will be on (a) computer-based techniques that foster active engagement with the target languages rather than rote learning and memorization, (b) teaching people to think in the target languages instead of metalanguage, and (c) measuring and comparing the effectiveness of such techniques.
    3. Corpus-based Computing/Linguistics for Ancient Greek. This year’s emphasis will be on “growing the corpus” of open data, including primary texts, metadata for morphology and syntax, semantic metadata, and other resources needed to consume them intelligently. Please see on how paper proposals for GERT sessions are evaluated. To stay informed about GERT, please join and subscribe to
