RNLD training activities

RNLD is part of the Consortium on Training in Language Documentation and Conservation (CTLDC).


Documenting and Revitalising Indigenous Languages (DRIL) Training Program

RNLD offers training to Indigenous communities and organizations through the Documenting and Revitalising Indigenous Languages (DRIL) Training Program. DRIL participants can login to the DRIL Resource Room to access learning resources. This activity is funded by the Indigenous Languages Support grant scheme.
