Background & goal

The proposed CLARIN Café is a follow up of the past CLARIN@universities workshop which was held last November in Utrecht, and which opened up the discussion of the use of CLARIN resources for higher education. While the workshop showcased various positive experiences (e.g. a student who explored Fin-CLARIN said that it is "paradise for researchers") the demand for more support has been expressed and the idea of share teaching scenarios was proposed. Fast forward a few months and the situation in higher education has drastically changed, with an even stronger need for virtual education tools and platforms. What can CLARIN do to support such needs? What can we learn from the success stories, but also from the less positive ones? With the impending summer, and lecturers starting to prepare their courses for next September in these uncertain times, this CLARIN Café will be an opportunity to meet, find inspiration for new teaching solutions, collect feedback and needs, and share ideas.

Target audience

This CLARIN Café will target an audience of lecturers and will focus on academic courses at BA and MA level. The use cases will be drawn from the domain of linguistics and language documentation, but they may provide useful insights on the use of CLARIN resources for lecturers in all SSH disciplines.
