Paving the way for conducting Online Training Programs on Translation

The Second Phase of the Training in Translation Pedagogy Program (TTPP) conducted by the University of Ottawa continues online

The Training in Translation Pedagogy Program (TTPP) conducted by the School of Translation and Interpretation, University of Ottawa, commenced its second phase on the 10th of September. Fifteen (15) academics from Kelaniya, Jaffna, Sabaragamuwa and Eastern universities, representing the four partnering universities in Sri Lanka offering the BA Translation Program, will follow the online sessions that will be conducted bi-weekly till the 17th of December 2021.

Conducted online over a period of two months, the course ‘Creating an Online Module on Translation’ will be facilitated by Professor Malcolm Williams (PhD, CT), the Adjunct Professor at the School of Translation and Interpretation, University of Ottawa, a veteran in Translation Studies with over 45 years’ experience in teaching professional translation and interpretation at a university level. This phase of the Pedagogy Program will focus on enhancing the learnings and skills required to deliver translation training programs online, and in doing so will pave the way to making the translation programs accessible to a wider audience. Undertaken in collaboration with the University Grants Commission (UGC), the TTPP is part of the Technical Assistance provided by NLEAP to the selected state universities to improve teaching methodology for translation degree programmes.
