Online workshop with ATPD

Bridging teaching and research in interpreting studies
(online workshop)

The interface between teaching and research, two pivotal elements of higher education, has long attracted scholarly attention because of their complementary and mutually reinforcing characteristics. In this talk, the trainer will explore the dynamic and reciprocal relationship between teaching and research in the context of translation and interpreting studies.

The core of this talk will center on a series of case studies drawn from the trainer’s own experiences. These cases illuminate how teaching in both practice-oriented and research-focused courses can serve as a fertile ground for research in interpreting. By sharing these examples, Dr Han aims to demonstrate how classroom experiences and pedagogical challenges can not only inform, but also enrich research endeavors in our field.
