Technical terminology for teaching through the medium of Welsh
Presenters: Professor Delyth Prys and Dr Tegau Andrews The aim of this workshop is to : Give an introduction to terminology standardization work, internationally and nationally, linking the theoretical and practical aspects, in order to explain the standardization process and its relevance to the work of the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol. Give staff and students at the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol a better understanding of the dictionary and terminology resources which are available, to help them write and communicate better using good, academic Welsh. Reveal how Welsh terms are coined and standardized, discussing the international standards which drive the process and introducing specific examples, so that interested parties can understand how these terms become part of our language. Provide initial guidance to authors, translators and project managers who have been funded by the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol to develop Welsh-language resources for students, explaining how terms are relevant to them and where terminology work fits within the timescale of creating resources. Content: A general overview of the dictionary and terminology resources available to staff and students of the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol. Practical support on how to use general dictionaries and on-line electronic terminology dictionaries. An explanation of how terms are standardized in Welsh, and the relevance of international standards to this process.

Managing your time and work pressure
At this uncertain time it can be a daunting task to manage time effectively. As many of us adjust to working remotely, while others learn to adapt to working in a different atmosphere on campus, time management can be challenging. This is a practical opportunity to review your personal style in terms of how you manage your work, people, administration, work-life balance and so on. Contents: Virtual working and managing various work pressures along with the challenges of care duties etc. have stretched most of us lately. This workshop will be an opportunity to think about these new pressures and the impact on our time, as well as an opportunity to consider ways of working more effectively both individually and as a team. At the end of this workshop trainees should be able to: • Identify problems and produce an action plan. • Identify patterns of procrastination. • Work better through effective planning and prioritising. • Make effective use of your diary/personal planner • Streamline/get rid of piles of paperwork and burdensome e-mails. • Make effective use of time with others.

Introduction to Open Access Publishing
This workshop includes a discussion about competing definitions of open access and the types of licences applied to open access publications. It considers the benefits and impacts of open access over traditional publishing methods, particularly in a Welsh language context and uses specific examples to demonstrate impacts in different sectors and for different stakeholders. Finally the workshop will consider the growing shift towards open access and what that might mean for the future of publishing in Wales and beyond. Participants will gain an understanding of how open access publishing works, how copyright affects accessibility and how different open licences limit or permit reuse. They will develop a better understanding of why open access publishing can be more beneficial than traditional commercial models, in certain cases, and how open access promotes equality and increases engagement with the Welsh language. This resource is presented by Jason Evans, National Wikimedian at the National Library of Wales. He has championed Open Access within the institution and more widely in the culture sector. Evans works with Wikimedia projects, including Wikipedia, to share the Library’s digital collections openly and to encourage engagement and participation in open crowdsourcing projects. Working closely with the Welsh Government he has led a number of projects to develop Welsh language open access content and data.
