This workshop will provide sound foundation in project planning and development. It is aimed primarily at those people who are relatively new to planning language projects. Over four sessions, participants will identify the project goals and objectives, proposed outcomes, the target audience, and the project team members and their skills and roles. They will map out the activities and projected timeline together with a preliminary implementation plan. We will consider ethical issues, community protocols and regulations that need to be addressed. Participants will identify their key project goal, and will prepare a succinct summary of the project that can be used in the next stage of attracting publicity and seeking funding.
