TOK-day (Update: postponed to 2022)

8 December 2021 09:30 - 17:30
Max Planck Institute
Auditorium 163
How is a child's speech influenced by what it hears?
Who would have thought it: the Netherlands in some kind of lockdown again?! As organisers, we have unanimously decided that for everyone's safety, it is better to move the TOK-day to the spring of 2022. We hope that you will understand and that you will still participate in 2022! A new date will be communicated as soon as possible (probably in the New Year).

The aim of the Taalontwikkeling Kinderen (in Nederland en Vlaanderen)- dag (in English: Child Language Development (in the Netherlands and Flanders) - day) is to bring together everyone working on child language development in the broadest sense of the word, to exchange ideas and experiences, to be inspired, and simply to see each other again. Jeanette Schaeffer (UvA), Elma Blom (UU) and Josje Verhagen (UvA) breathed new life into what used to be NET-dag by organising the first TOK-dag in Amsterdam in 2019. After a corona-delay, the second edition will now take place in Nijmegen. The programme consists of four lectures on a variety of topics, plus short talks by PhD students who have recently obtained their PhDs, a (recycled) poster session, and short talks on impact projects.


The complete programme will be published in early November, but please check the preliminary programme here.
Should we be in the unfortunate position of not being able to host a live event in Nijmegen in December, the TOK-day will take place online (paying special attention to its networking purpose). 


Registration for participants is now open. Registration is free of charge but compulsory if you wish to attend the workshop. You are invited to register using this form. The language used in each talk is the same as the language used in the title.  

Deadline November 20, 2021.
