Summer School 2018

The CoEDL Summer Schools are the flagship educational series of the ARC Centre of Excellence for the Dynamics of Language, open to Australian and international students and researchers. Previous Centre Summer Schools have been held at Western Sydney University (2015), the University of Melbourne (2016) and at the Australian National University (2017).

CoEDL Summer Schools draw on expertise across CoEDL's programs and nodes, and our international partners to offer educational enrichment and catalyse new research collaborations. Everyone interested in language and technology of all backgrounds and interests are welcome; in previous years CoEDL Summer Schools have attracted diverse cohorts ranging from advanced undergraduate students through to professors.

This year’s CoEDL Summer School, with a dual focus on technology and community engagement, will be held from 26 November through 30 November 2018, at the Australian National University. The Summer School will feature twelve themed courses. 


The 2018 Summer School program offers courses in streams over four days (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday). Each course consists of four 1.5 hour sessions over the four days. Each course will have the same timeslot each day. 

There will be public lectures on the evening of Tuesday 27 November and Thursday 29 November. More details to follow.

There will also be optional activities on Wednesday separate to the main courses (details to come soon).
