Online Courses: Research Methods in Translation and Interpreting Studies
We are pleased to announce the launch of two new courses on research methods in Translation and Interpreting Studies, developed at FTI-Geneva on the basis of our innovative doctoral school program:
Research Methods in Translation and Interpreting Studies
- (I): Foundations and Data Analysis (Distance Learning) – http://www.unige.ch/formcont/researchmethods-distance1
- (II) Specific Research and Scientific Communication Skills (Distance Learning) – http://www.unige.ch/formcont/researchmethods-distance2
These courses offer a unique opportunity for doctoral or pre-doctoral students from partner institutions, as well as other researchers in the field, to hone their methodological and communication skills, and to collaborate with fellow scholars via a one-of-a-kind, interactive on-line platform. Participants will have access to reading materials, individual feedback, discussion threads and plenary lectures, and will be able to organize their work according to their individual schedules.
Registration for the first course is open until 18 September 2016, and the course will officially begin on 26 September. For our first plenary guest lecture, scheduled for 29 September as part of FTI’s 75th anniversary celebrations, Sharon O’Brien (Dublin City University) will discuss research methods and interdisciplinarity.
