The RECOLANG team met on 31 May – 1 June 2023 in a hybrid format, with some members of the team in Graz and the others working online. These two days provided an opportunity to review progress on the four parts of the website currently under construction, to plan and allocate the remaining tasks, and to discuss the preparation of the next steps of communication and publication, as well as further perspectives for the project.
As far as the preparation of the site is concerned, these two days were fruitful in terms of exchanges on final adjustments or additions to texts in certain sections, and reconfigurations and structuring in other sections. These working days with the ECML team and Marisa Cavalli, the ECML programme consultant, also provided an opportunity to work on the multimodal dimension of the different parts of the site (articulation and balance of the web pages between texts / diagrams / visuals and videos), in support of what had already been put online. A timetable for completion has been drawn up, with access to the French version of RECOLANG resources planned for December 2023.
The team also took the opportunity to prepare a joint paper for the EdiLiC Congress (Education and Linguistic and Cultural Diversity) in Copenhagen (28-30 June 2023), as well as two publication projects (one in English and the other in French).
Finally, time for discussion and reflection helped to formulate initial prospects for the project's follow-up, in the context of the new call for proposals currently underway for the ECML's 2024-27 programme.
