Details for unit 8433

Title:Iain Greumach (2)
Short url:
Summary:Part of the Stòras Beò nan Gàidheal project in which the UHI Language Sciences Institute with Sabhal Mòr Ostaig and Soillse, together with Irish partners, record the natural speech of Irish and Scottish Gaelic speakers in their own communities with user-friendly equipment and techniques. Here, in the second part, Iain recalls initially what Sabhal Mòr Ostaig was like when he first joined. He has seen many developments, not just in the estate, but also in the range of courses that have been developed over time. While the first students tended to come from the islands, the student body has changed, with greater geographical mixing and of ages. Course delivery methods have also become more flexible. Iain is closely involved with organising work experience for students, and is pleased that college graduates find good employment. Finally, he reflects on both change and continuity as he experiences it on frequent return visits to Lewis.
Language notes:A two-way conversation in which Peter Murray questions Iain Graham on his early recollections and opinions on growing up on Lewis in the Outer Hebrides and the course of his subsequent career.
