The creation of the current database was made possible by the International Association for Task-based Language Teaching and Learning (IATBLT.org), who provided the funding and invaluable and enthusiastic advisory support. Credit for programming is due to Jonathan May.

The original database was created at Indiana University in 2014 by Laura Gurzynski-Weiss, Carly Carver (Augusta University), and Ángel Milla Muñoz as part of a doctoral seminar on TBLT taught by Laura Gurzynski-Weiss.

Special thanks Emma Marsden, Cylcia Bolibaugh, Luke Plonsky, and the entire IRIS-database.org team for allowing us to search the tasks housed on IRIS and invite scholars to share their peer-reviewed published tasks on the Task Bank, as well.
