Mentoring and knowledge-sharing efforts from across the Centre
CoEDL was committed to offering learning opportunities as widely as possible to a range of academic, professional and community groups. Centre members shared their expertise with classes through university courses, while summer scholarships and research placements similarly gave over 100 university students a taste of the Centre’s work. CoEDL also organised annual Summer Schools, which offered Centre members and the broader linguistic community opportunities to diversify their skills, form new collaborations and engage with transdisciplinary perspectives, and allowed early career researchers to gain experience in teaching and leading education activities. These activities became pathways for research students to work with CoEDL.
Beyond formal research and education settings, CoEDL supported collaboration with and outreach to communities and people interested in the documentation and maintenance of linguistic and cultural heritage. Workshops with communities across the region — like the Pacific Islands Universities Research Network conference workshop discussed below — shared insights on topics such as corpus building, archiving, language revitalisation and maintenance, language resource development and more.
This work brought new audiences in touch with CoEDL efforts, enriched the Centre’s research and encouraged good practice among people studying language sciences and assisting language revitalisation, maintenance and archiving.
