Title: Web 2.0 Technologies in the translator training: Aulalint
Authors: Olvera Lobo, María Dolores
Gutiérrez-Artacho, Juncal
Issue Date: Jul-2014
Abstract: The dynamic nature of translator training, set as it is against a background of exponential growth in Information and Communication Technology, has channelled the ongoing research of a large number of University teachers since last two decades. Innovative teaching initiatives have been developed to review the key component of the research and teaching conducted in this context. Our main objectives has been to implement the current changes under way in the Spanish university system; introduce a new didactic model, PATT (Professional Approach to Translation Training), designed to coordinate the learning taking place in a series of core and elective course modules that ran across four years of the undergraduate Translation and Interpreting degree program; and adapt PATT model to the Web 2.0 technologies with the development of new resources (Digital library, Open Software library, Social Networks, Wikis, Blogs, etc.). This didactic model has grown during these years ever more sophisticated and the gradual testing and refinement of transparent assessment tools has enabled us to create a learning/teaching environment that draws on the most productive aspects of social constructivism to offer learners a modern, blended e-learning course environment closely attuned to the reality of the Digital Native generation through the rigorous integration of Web 2.0 interactive social networks.
