Models for Capacity Development in Language Documentation and Conservation


The goal of this symposium is to compare and contrast models of training in language documentation and conservation in order to allow for a deeper understanding of the varied contexts, goals, strategies, and challenges that underlie training programs worldwide. The presenters at the symposium represent organizations which either provide training in language documentation and conservation or facilitate training programs through resource sharing. This symposium has been planned as part of preparation for formation of The Consortium on Training in Language Documentation and ConservationCTLDC (CTLDC).
