Message 2: Translation Conference

Date: Mon, 10 Feb 2003 11:54:13 +0100
From: Albert Branchadell <Albert.Branchadelluab.es>
Subject: Translation Conference

6th International Conference on Translation
Distance Teaching of Translation and Languages
Departament de Traducci� i d'Interpretaci�
Universitat Aut�noma de Barcelona
10-12 May 2004

The development of communication and information technology has allowed us
to overcome two barriers that we had been unable to break for centuries:
time and space. The need to translate has grown with the elimination of
these restrictions, and this has pushed translation and language education
to new ways of communicating. All over the planet, we now have access to a
wide range of opportunities presented to us from far-away locations, and the
university must also find its place in this new global order.

At the 6th International Conference on Translation, we wish to debate the
challenges faced by universities which offer courses to students who do not
attend class on campus in the traditional way, in particular in the teaching
of translation and languages for translators. We also wish to debate the
advantages and drawbacks associated with the application of information and
communication technology to distance education in these areas.

Thus, the general lines of the Conference will be:
- Distance teaching of translation (curricular design, methodology, and
practical experiences)
- Distance teaching of languages for translators (curricular design,
methodology, and practical experiences)
- Distance teaching of translation tools (software) (curricular design,
methodology, and practical experiences)
- Methodological considerations in distance education (pedagogic models,
role of the professor, type of interaction, type of learning)
- Technical aspects of distance education (platforms, communication and
learning tools, production tools)
Call for Papers
We invite researchers to present papers along the general lines of the
Conference or on other subjects related with the distance teaching of
translation and languages for translators.
