Conference 2016

Translation and Interpreting: Learning beyond the comfort zone

16th Annual Portsmouth Translation Conference, 5 November 2016

Online education has become a reality- from MOOCS to online courses, the possibilities of off campus learning are growing every day. The teaching and learning digital revolution is here. The University of the future will be very different to what we are used to. This conference aims to explore the embracing of technology and digital competencies in the context of Translation and Interpreting Studies.

We welcome proposals of around 200 words for 60-minute practical translation or interpreting work-shops and 20-minute research papers related to the following themes:

  • Role of technology in translation and interpreting learning
  • Influence and implications of digital humanities to learning
  • Modes of learning (collaborative, distance, e-learning, blended learning)
  • Formal versus informal learning
  • On-the-job learning
  • Learning transferable skills
  • Lifelong learning
  • Pedagogical and research approaches to learning
  • Translation learning and competences

Please send enquiries and proposals to by 20 June 2016.
