Event description

Description

Technology has an important role to play in successful research and language teaching programs which is reflected in the increasing number of apps available. Many of these apps have features that can limit their usefulness in meeting specific needs. Developing your own app is one way to ensure that it has the functionality you are looking for. This workshop will introduce participants to app development approaches with a focus on language research (community researchers, fieldworkers, psycholinguists) and language teaching (foreign languages, Aboriginal languages, community languages & classics). The day features an invited talk from Dr Stephen Wan, Leader of the Language & Social Computing Team at CSIRO's Data61 in Sydney. A tutorial style workshop on low-tech app prototyping within the broader process of collaboration, design and usability assessment will be led by WSU's Kate Richards.

Participants who already have functional apps are invited to bring their app on a device to a Lunchtime Showcase, to demo and discuss progress and insights informally. If you have an app to show, please email - by Friday 7 September - a brief description to: Mark Richards <m.richards@westernsydney.edu.au>
