Intense learning in an Indigenous environment
AILDI is synonymous with its intense summer institute. We offer courses related to language teaching, maintenance, documentation and revitalization. The institute promotes and cultivates an atmosphere of sharing among the participants by structuring classes with both a teaching and learning component. Participants are also able to immediately apply language learning methodologies and materials through micro-teaching.
Documentation, dictionaries, technology and traditional knowledge
AILDI offers workshops and other educational and training opportunities in addition to the annual summer institute. We run workshops on documentation technology, dictionary making, games and technology in Indigenous languages, traditional ecological knowledge and many more. These are offered both at the University of Arizona or throughout communities and locations in the Southwest.
