Capacity building and language skills transfer in the Welsh digital economy

This three-year project, funded through a KESS scholarship, is looking at electronic learning in the context of adults learning Welsh at Nant Gwrtheyrn. A suite of e-learning resources will be produced in order to add to the learning experience of Nant Gwrtheyrn's learners, following their week-long language immersion at the residential centre. Learners' views will help to inform the creative process and contribute to an evaluation of the resources developed.


Jennifer is working under the supervision of Professor Colin H Williams, Research Professor at the School of Welsh, Dr Adrian Price, Managing Director at Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan Welsh for Adults Centre, and Pegi Talfryn, Education Manager at Nant Gwrtheyrn Welsh Language and Heritage Centre.


Knowledge Economy Skills Scholarships (KESS) is a pan-Wales higher level skills initiative led by Bangor University on behalf of the HE sector in Wales. It is part funded by the Welsh Government’s European Social Fund (ESF) convergence programme for West Wales and the Valleys.

Supervisors: Professor Colin Williams and Dr Adrian Price
