Multimedia and digital technologies are powerful resources for language and cultural maintenance, innovation and transformation. In this practice-based unit, students will be provided with the opportunity to create language resources for a language community. Students will learn how to use a range of software and various forms of language resources, develop skills in critically evaluating existing language resources for Indigenous language communities and develop ethical awareness of their cultural and social responsibilities in preparing and using existing and new resources. Students will gain knowledge and skills in recording oral language, and will learn how to edit, transcribe and format their recordings and other language recordings in order to create language resources for a range of contemporary situations. Students will be required to consider complex ethical issues related to language documentation, including copyright, intellectual property rights and community ownership for Indigenous oral language material.
