The School of 2021 carries the theme "Cantonese Studies in the Digital Age". We are now living in the Information Age with a lot of data surrounding us. We need to apply appropriate methods to collect, process, interpret, and represent these data. Digital technologies play a significant role in this regard. In this two-day event, speakers of the School will introduce some up-to-date Cantonese studies involving digital technologies, such as corpus-based research, online tools and resources for Cantonese studies, and digital processing of Cantonese corpus data.
The jointly held TeLLT & CoLLT 2021 conference aim to bring together academics from around the world to report on their various research work related to technology-enhanced language learning and teaching (TeLLT), and corpus-based language learning and teaching (CoLLT).
