Towards Authentic Experiential Learning in Translator Education (2nd Edition)

Editor(s): Donald Kiraly, Gary Massey

Book Description

This volume brings together the voices of a number of translation and interpreting scholars and educators representing several different cultures and language combinations, in order to present their views on, and experiences with, authentic experiential learning in professional translation and interpreting programmes. Readers who happen to be translator educators and who have not yet explored the possibility of incorporating authentic experiential learning into their teaching will be encouraged by this short collection of chapters to consider, or reconsider, this pedagogical option. In addition, the volume will inspire new and up-and-coming translator educators to reflect on their own understandings of what it means to know, to learn and to teach as they set out to educate translators competently and wisely in this still-new millennium. Finally, it also provides a context and justification for experiential learning on the wider canvas of teacher development and organizational learning.

This second edition includes two new chapters (Chapters 10 and 11) and updated versions of many other chapters from the first edition.
