London Met Translation expert offers guidance on ‘Learning Beyond the Comfort Zone’ at national conference.

Date: 14 November 2016

Dr Piero Toto, a senior lecturer in BA Translation and MA Translation, was invited to speak at the annual Portsmouth Translation Conference.

Piero’s expertise lies within Translation Studies with a particular focus on web-based resources and using electronic tools, information and technology management for translation.

This year’s theme was ‘Learning Beyond the Comfort Zone’ where Piero presented his latest research, Flipped Classrooms and Translation Environment Tools: A Love Story.

The model focuses on how flipped learning and flipped classrooms can be applied to the teaching of Computer-Aided Translation tools to enhance students’ learning experience, and improve the overall teaching experience for lecturers.

“The Portsmouth Translation Conference is an unmissable annual event where like-minded academics and researchers can discuss the latest advances in translation pedagogy and best practices,” said Dr Toto.

“It was the perfect platform to showcase London Met's Translation & Interpreting's innovative teaching methods and use of technology across our undergraduate and postgraduate courses.”

Held on 5 November, the conference was attended by national translation academics, translation technology trainers and practitioners.
