Short descriptions of training workshops and leaders
The workshop discusses how planning before, during and after an intervention can enhance the outcome of the investigation. It further relates experimental design to areas such as research questions, selection of participants, pre- and post tests, and interpretation of results
The workshop is led by Dr Victoria Johansson, associate professor of general linguistics, Lund University. Victoria is an internationally renowned scholar and has led several research projects in psycholinguistics and related fields and has great experience in experimental design.
Designing, using and analysing corpora
This tutorial will look at the basics of organising, transcribing/annotating and analysing your language corpus with the assistance of the programs within the CLAN toolbox (from the CHILDES project)
This workshop is led by Dr Frida Splendio, Educational developer at the Humanities Lab and senior lecturer in Swedish as second language. In her capacity as Educational developer, Frida regularly trains PhD students and researchers in tools for corpus linguistics.
This tutorial is about keystroke logging, a methodology for studying writing and language development. We present the keystroke logging tool ScriptLog, and demonstrate how to use its basic functions for recording, replaying and analysing the writing process.
This workshop is led by Dr Johan Frid, researcher in phonetics, and language and speech technology at the Humanities lab. Johan is the main programmer of ScriptLog2.
Video & Audio
In this tutorial you will learn how to operate a videocam, how to achieve optimal framing and visual composition, and to capture good audio. We also look at interview techniques.
This workshop is led by Peter Roslund, research engineer at Lund University Humanities Lab. Peter has been working with video and audio professionally since the 80s. Peter is responsible for the LARM-studio which is a professional level research and educational studio for audio and video.
