CLEAR is committed to developing human resources and improving educational opportunities for all people. The focus of our educational efforts is the advancement of knowledge in areas of human language technology.

Through a variety of projects, we are attempting to achieve the following outcomes:

  • Improve the quality of undergraduate and graduate education in human language technology (HLT) at the University of Colorado and throughout the US;
  • Increase the number of undergraduate and graduate certificate programs and advanced degree programs in HLT in US colleges and universities as well as the number of women and minority students; and,
  • Increase the number of trained researchers and developers.

Below is a brief description of several educational efforts we are involved in. Follow the links for more complete information about each effort.

Certificate Program in Human Language Technology

The development of these courses has led to an M.S. Certificate Program in Human Language Technology at the University of Colorado offered by the joint efforts of the Center for Computational Language and Education Research, the Department of Computer Science, the Department of Linguistics, the Department of Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences, and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
