Soillse has recently published online several reports of projects funded by the Small Research Fund. These can be found on the “Publications” tab under Education and Communities.
Under Education, Strathclyde University’s report “Transformative Pedagogies for Gaelic Revitalisation” presents the findings from a small-scale study of teachers’ views on the potential of translanguaging as a classroom pedagogy in Gaelic-medium education (GME).
Under Communities, Heriot-Watt University’s report “‘New Speakers’ of Gaelic from outside the UK” presents the results of a small-scale investigation into the backgrounds, experiences and views of a group of ‘new speakers’ of Gaelic currently living in Scotland who originally come from countries other than the United Kingdom.
Both these projects were conducted in collaboration with Edinburgh University staff.
Also under Communities, Sabhal Mòr Ostaig have released a volume of transcripts in printable format of the “Saoghal Thormoid” series of conversations recorded and placed online last year. This collection is accompanied by a new Foreword by Soillse Director and UHI Gaelic Research Professor, Conchúr Ó Giollagáin.
