Over the last few years, the Coleg has funded a number of projects in a wide range of subject areas across all of the universities in Wales. A selection of these projects can be found below.
The Coleg employs a Terminology Project Officer to co-ordinate and develop higher education sector terms. The online Welsh medium terminology resource currently contains useful terms for the use of students studying subjects such as International Politics, Law, Creative Industries, Psychology, Woodland management, Education and childhood studies, Mathematics, Physics, Geography and Sport.
You can contact the Terminology Project Officer on firstname.lastname@example.org
The purpose of this project is the digitization of Welsh books that are out of print that are relevant to academic studies in higher education. The collection can be viewed on Y Porth’s Resources Library and the books can be read in the form of an e-book.
Among the most popular titles are:
The 'Gofalu trwy'r Gymraeg' (Caring through Welsh) app includes vocabulary and phrases relevant to the healthcare sector so that individuals working in the field can use Welsh with patients. This app scooped the IT and the Welsh Language award in the Welsh Government‘s Welsh Language in Health, Social Services and Social Care Awards 2014.
This is a collection of resources developed for lecturers who train prospective teachers who will be teaching Welsh as a second language in primary schools. The mats can be used as a basis for lectures, as a practical guide to promote incidental language, and as an aid to ensure accuracy when producing leaflets, writing and modeling murals. There are additional resources such as powerpoint presentations, individual mats, flashcards and audio clips on the Blackboard site Y Porth.
The Cronfa Cyfieithiadau'r Gymraeg (Welsh Translation Collection) is an online catalog of texts translated into Welsh from the early twentieth century in the fields of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences.
The individual texts are chosen mainly from prose and drama texts that could be of interest for research and teaching in higher education.
Suggestions for any additions to the collection is welcome and you are welcome to contact the Coleg to nominate other translations, including those not published.
The Esboniadur is an online resource for higher education students and secondary school pupils. The resource presents the information on Wikipedia form in various subject areas and fields. It contains definitions and explanations for Geography; knowledge of English and Welsh films and programmes including video clips in a section called 'In the Frame' (Yn y Ffrâm); details of Welsh playwrights between 1880 and 1940, along with information about some of the plays of the twentieth century.
Information was gathered from lecturers and postgraduates and is constantly developing.
