In December 2017 the Expert Team suggested names to the ECML for the PRO-Sign 2 Network meeting, which is planned on 5-6 April 2018, in Graz, Austria. Ten people will be funded to attend, but more are welcome at their own costs. The preliminary program will follow soon, so keep an eye on this website! The first announcements and invitations will be sent out by us and ECML in January 2018.
Beppie van den Bogaerde (PRO-Sign 2 Expert Team member) attended the ECML Think Tank in Graz, Austria, on 18 and 19 January 2018. The topic of the Think Tank was Language Learning Pathways. More information to follow next month.
Data on how student learners of a sign language reflect on SL learning is currently being collected in Germany and Ireland, where the PRO-Sign 2 team are piloting the European Language Portfolio. Watch out for more information on what students think later this Spring!
