Stories about resources developed through partnerships between CoEDL and community experts
CoEDL members engaged with various communities across Australia and the region to conduct their research. From the Sydney Speaks project; to developing communication technology alongside lived-experience experts; to documenting language in the field — close community collaboration was the lifeblood of most of CoEDL’s work.
Often, these collaborations resulted in resources co-developed with and for the people CoEDL worked with. Resources like apps, posters and dictionaries can support language documentation and education as well as broader efforts like — as discussed below — public health outreach. The stories shared here highlight three such resources, emerging specifically from collaborations with Australian Indigenous communities.
