Lab sessions are designed to provide a comfortable environment for individual and group discussion about L541 class topics and assignments. This includes giving students a chance to practice using new tools and methods, work through concepts, 'try out' new sounds, etc.
Please visit the L541 course and lab websites regularly for updates on class information regarding the lab sessions. Assignments and materials connected with lab sessions will be uploaded on a weekly basis.
A lot of useful resources can also be found on the Indiana University Phonetics Lab website.
