Title: Teaching and Learning Terminology
Subtitle: New strategies and methods
Edited By: Amparo Alcina
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/bct.35
Series Title: Benjamins Current Topics 35
Description:

This volume, which was originally published in "Terminology" 15:1 (2009),
presents and reflects on experiences dealing with terminology training, from a
theoretical, practical and professional perspective. Terminology is part of the
programmes of several (post)graduate courses, such as Translating and
Interpreting, Applied Languages, Information Science and other disciplines.
Especially terminology practice has changed drastically over the years and
training in terminology must adapt to this new reality. Drawing on years of
experience in teaching this subject at various academic levels and in diverse
ways, we explore what to teach about terminology, how to teach it, how it is
learned, what experiences are put into practice with what result, and how to
connect the knowledge taught at universities and other institutions to the
practical skills that are required from professionals in different areas, e.g.
translators, information scientists, knowledge engineers, with respect to their
knowledge of terminology.
