Webinar – 'Translation in the Multilingual Language Classroom: Rationale, Roles and Activity Design'

When: April 21, 2021 4:00pm to 5:30pm
Colina & Albrecht

This webinar is presented by Sonia Colina and Sara Albrecht from the University of Arizona.

Pedagogical translation is making a comeback in the multilingual language classroom as an activity that promotes literacy, metalinguistic and cultural awareness, translanguaging, language diversity and community engagement. While theoretical papers on this topic are becoming more common, practical guidance for teachers on how to incorporate translation in their curriculum in an informed manner is scarce. This presentation will help teachers understand the historical context that banned translation, the justification for its reintroduction and the roles translation can serve in language learning. Participants will be guided through sample activities and will learn basic steps to design translation activities that meet their learning goals.

Participants attending can request a certificate of attendance for 1.5 hours of Continuing Education during the live event; or participants they can request a digital badge after the event.
