Training of Trainers workshop on Virtual classes - Feedback and Assessment
Prague, February 4-5, 2016
The EMCI’s work program for the academic year 2015-16 included the organization of a workshop for less experienced trainers of interpreters on the subject of feedback and assessment during virtual classes. The workshop was organised by Charles University Prague, and it was co-moderated by Ms. Ildiko Horvath (ELTE), Ms Katerina Dara Lepoura (DG INTE), Ms. Ivana Čeňková (Charles University) and Mr. Fernando Leitao (DG SCIC). Representative from sixteen Universities attended the workshop.
Given the interactive nature of the workshops, it was impossible to video-record the event. The documents that guided the workshops are made available for future reference (courtesy of the moderators, whom we thank wholeheartedly).
