SHIFT in Orality Remote Interpreting course (June 2018), University of Bologna, Forli Campus, Italy
From the 11th to the 16th of June, 2018, I took part in an exclusive international research project whereby I engaged in intensive remote interpreting classes aiming at covering all aspects of this type of communication.
The project, named SHIFT, or SHaping the Interpreters of the Future and of Today
, was funded by the European Union
Erasmus Programme in collaboration with several European universities. Working with fellow professionals, tutors, and students from University of Bologna, University of Surrey, University of Granada, and University Pablo de Olavide (Seville), as well as staff from Dualia telephone interpreting and Veasyt video interpreting, several hyper-realistic scenarios were simulated to give interpreting an authentic environment to develop their skills in. I was awarded a certificate of attendance.
