講演題目 Working Memory Capacity in Second Language Research
講演要旨
In the late 1990s, more and more studies have been exploring the role of the individual differences in second language production and development.  Among others, working memory capacity has been seen as one of the most influential learner characteristics in L2 production during complex task performance.  The talk will primarily focus on the construct of working memory and its different models from the perspective of cognitive psychology.  Accordingly, a series of WM measures that have been widely used in second language research and have been shown to be highly predictive and reliable will be presented.  Finally, a series of challenging issues in SL research looking at the relationship between working memory capacity and L2 development and production will be addressed.
