Research Project in Languages Education - KCIL5621

Although some Indigenous Australian languages have undergone substantial documentation and are currently being taught, many are in great need of further research and all require more investigation. This unit of study provides students with an opportunity to exercise the skills and knowledge provided in the course to generate new knowledge about particular languages and their teaching. The content and nature of tasks completed in this unit of study will vary depending on existing research and students' abilities and experience in chosen languages, and will be subject to negotiation between students and lecturer on an individual basis. However, all students will be required to base their research in their own teaching of Indigenous languages in a school, TAFE, university, language centre or similar setting.
