Papers announced for Coleg Cymraeg Research Conference

June 2024 | Featured

This year, the annual Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol research conference will be held in Aberystwyth on Friday 28 June. There are many papers on a broad range of topics being presented this year. There will be presentations on agricultural strategy, the Welsh language in the context of health care, the Curriculum for Wales, the language in the workplace and a variety of other interesting topics.

Indeed, the variety of the subjects involved shows the wide array of research work that now happens through the medium of Welsh in Wales, and how the use of the language in further education is truly interdisciplinary and extends to all subject areas.

On Thursday 27 June there will be a panel discussion on artificial intelligence with Dr Cynog Prys (Senior Lecturer, Sociology and Social Policy, Bangor University), Dr Seren Evans (Lecturer, Sport Sciences, Bangor University), Dr Neil Mac Parthaláin (Senior lecturer, Computer Science, Aberystwyth University) and Professor Huw Morgan (Physics, Aberystwyth University). There is also an opportunity for post graduate students and early career researchers to receive training on how to share their research in different ways.
