About this book

This book provides a theoretical and pragmatic guide to the use of situated learning within structured interpreting programs. Proponents of situated learning theory believe that meaningful learning occurs when students interact with others in the social contexts in which they will be working. With such interactions, students have the opportunity to apply their theoretical knowledge to authentic contexts that they will encounter throughout their professional lives. While a limited number of research articles exist about the use of situated learning in interpreter education, this is the first full book to provide the foundations for situated learning theory, show how to implement situated learning in interpreter education, and offer practical applications for maximizing authenticity in interpreting classrooms.

Reviews

“This book bridges the gap between knowledge and real-world work experience by delineating a scaffolded curriculum that supports students’ trajectory toward authentic learning that maximally develops their interpreting skills.”
Kim B. Kurz, Associate Professor, Department of American Sign Language & Interpreter Education, National Institute for the Deaf at the Rochester Institute of Technology, USA

 “This is a systematic, didactic, very readable handbook on interpreter training. The authors make a good case for situated learning, the underlying principle being the gradual introduction of aspects of authentic situations and challenges of real-life interpreting into the guidance of student interpreters being prepared for work in the field.”
Daniel Gile, Professor Emeritus, Université Paris Sorbonne Nouvelle, France

"What a useful and fascinating approach to teaching and learning interpretation. This book offers a promising method for guiding students on their journey to becoming professionals, through authentic and meaningful practice."
Sharon Neumann Solow, Interpreter, Educator, Author, and Consultant
