Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) in Translation Teaching- a report on recent practice

Wednesday 20 April 2022, 12pm GMT

Collaborative online international learning (COIL) is an increasingly popular form of pedagogic activity, providing students at institutions in different countries the opportunity to work together on a collaborative project. Since October 2021 Dr Shani Tobias of Monash University and Dr Martin Ward of the University of Leeds have started to implement COIL activities into their teaching of MA level Japanese to English translation once a semester.

This talk will provide an in-depth introduction to the activities conducted so far, incorporating student feedback, and highlight the huge potential for COIL in advancing the translation pedagogy of East Asian languages and maximising student gains. It will also show how the connections established through the EATPA network offer significant potential for more inter-institutional collaboration to advance pedagogy and research. The talk will be followed by a time for Q&A and discussion.
