Resourcing Researchers and Tooling Teachers
Participants will have the opportunity to learn how to carry out project work based on discourse analysis, to learn new forms of analysis (in terms of both level of analysis, e.g. contextual analysis and intonational analysis, and tools of analysis, e.g. corpus-based concordancing and coding), to learn new forms of examination and presentation of analysis, and to learn how to use analysis to describe (part of) a language.
Participants are encouraged to come with a "project" or project idea relating to research, application or teaching, so that they can advance this project during the Institute in workshops and in consultation with Institute lecturers. A number of projects will be showcased as models for future research. Projects will be displayed at the Institute venue. Different stages of projects will be discussed -- research proposals, project planning and execution, publication of results.
The Institute is also intended to further networking and collaborative projects, both through the design of the courses and through the venue, which is an ideal setting for team work and group discussions.
The 2005 Institute is organised by the Centre for Language in Social Life, Department of Linguistics, at Macquarie University and supported by ASFLA (Australian Systemic Functional Linguistics Association) and ISFLA (International Systemic Functional Linguistics Association).
