Technology for Teaching Translation: Case Studies in Chinese/English

  • Monday 28 August 2017, 4.15 – 5.15 pm
  • Room W3.03, Level 3, Baldessin Precinct Building #110, ANU
  • Speakers: Dr Shengyu Fan and Grazia Scotellaro, CAP, ANU
This presentation will report on a recent project undertaken by Dr. Shengyu Fan and Grazia Scotellaro to introduce the use of apps and online resources in teaching Translation and Interpreting in Chinese for CAP. The project initially set out to test and evaluate a range of technologies including Google Translate, Padlet, Scrible and Socrative and only the most appropriate were then used in CHIN3041/6041 course: Case Studies in Translation: Chinese/English. One of the main aims of this project is to break out from the traditional way of teaching and assessing student learning in this field. We live in a technology rich society. Mobile technology is part of our daily lives, but in stark contrast, we still teach in a way that does not fully engage with this life and work scenario. Our aim is to teach students to be critical users of technologies, especially in the field of translation and interpreting. Translation Studies students who are exposed to a variety of practical uses of modern technology are better equipped to work in the 21st century

This forum is jointly coordinated by the College of Arts & Social Sciences (the School of Literature, Languages & Linguistics and the Centre for Arab & Islamic Studies) and the College of Asia & the Pacific (the School of Culture, History & Language).
