After an absence for technical reasons the first series of videos is now back on Highland Council’s Am Baile site. The clips have been compressed to facilitate fast online access, which results in loss of video and audio quality, but it does mean they’re available at just one click (if you have broadband…).
The pilot series of Guthan nan Eilean/Island Voices films was released as a DVD/CD-Rom package, and is proving its worth as a promotional tool to help explain what the expanded project is about, as well as in its own right as community-based language learning material. This week and next the package is available at Ceòlas and Gaisgeach an t-Sluaigh in South Uist and Eriskay, two major events where residents and visitors meet and mix.
It is also available online from the Gaelic Books Council.
Further to yesterday’s post here’s the Workshop programme.
In response to demand an additional workshop for tutors on video content development is being planned for late August. The probable location is North Uist.
Some of the comments from previous participants: “very hands-on approach”, “nice to see finished projects”, “variety of theory and experiential learning”. Any tutors in the Western Isles or Skye interested in a place at the workshop should get in touch.
