QEM TCUP EAGER “Native Languages and Technology” Program

QEM TCUP EAGER “Native Languages and Technology” Program: Using Technology to Support the Documentation and Preservation of Native Languages

The QEM Network received support from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to investigate the effects of collaborative technology-enabled, hands-on language research projects on the recruitment into, and retention of, American Indian males in Computer Science or Information Technology (CS/IT) courses and majors. During the academic year, project participants will be provided opportunities to take on-line technology courses, attend information-sharing training webinars, and develop/implement language-focused research projects. Participating faculty-student teams will be invited to discuss their research ideas or results, benefits of the QEM EAGER project, and lessons learned at a Summer 2018 follow-up symposium. They also will discuss dissemination, recruitment, and sustainability strategies to expand interest among American Indian males in CS/IT overall, and computational linguistics, in particular.
