Over the past ten years, administrators and teachers have been encouraged to integrate translation into the curriculum as a way to promote global awareness, develop language mediation skills, and connect students to career paths. There are, however, very few materials available to guide them. Moreover, interest in translation outside translation training programs has led to the emergence of new pedagogical contexts for translation and interpreting, which challenge traditional models and demand new pedagogical approaches. This year’s ATISA Summer School is designed to address those needs.

This five-day residential summer school offers a combination of lectures, roundtables, discussion sessions and individual tutorials for those interested in designing and implementing translation- and interpreting-related programs, courses and activities. ATISA Summer School faculty members and invited speakers will introduce the theoretical and research foundations for integrating translation-related courses and activities into the curriculum and will share more practical advice derived from their administrative and teaching experience. An action research component will also be included in order to foster a reflective pedagogy and to generate a community of research to support the continued development and assessment of pedagogical approaches for teaching translation and interpreting in traditional and emerging contexts. The Summer School is open to graduate students, faculty at all stages of their career, and administrators.

Registration closes April 22.
