How to use this section?
Peruse the course descriptions and the schedule, select the courses that you would like to take, and then register. These choices are not “set in stone.” You may revise them with a CoLang 2012 advisor during spring 2012. The advisor will contact you after you have registered. Courses are 4 hours unless otherwise noted; please see the Workshops Schedule to choose courses that meet during the same time period. The sample schedules below avoid course conflicts. Participants will choose 16 workshops (64 hours total). All participants will attend the first- and last-day plenaries, and the daily Models talks after lunch.

A practicing linguist who is interested in re-tooling and acquiring new technological skills would likely take Audio 1 & 2 (or Video 1 & 2), Database 1 & 2, ELAN 1 & 2, and chose between electives for the remaining 4 hours (e.g., Life in Communities or Transcription).
