The Fusion of Two Worlds

Advances in Digital Technology Brings Great Transformation for the Field of Interpreter Education

The concept of digital education (DE) has many definitions and essentially includes the use of electronic media and information and communication technologies (ICT) in education. The eighth volume in the Interpreter Education series, Interpreter Education in the Digital Age: Innovation, Access, and Change, edited by Suzanne Ehrlich and Jemina Napier, brings together innovative approaches for using digital technology in interpreter education, ranging from on-demand interpreting using iPad technology to preparing interpreting students for interactions in social media forums.

Other volumes in the Gallaudet University Press Interpreter Education series have described various uses of technology in interpreter education, including in relation to blended delivery using online resources (Napier, 2006), the development of video resources (Bowen-Bailey, 2006), the use of virtual learning environments for distance learning (De Quadros & Stumpf, 2009), and the design of online education for healthcare interpreter education (Bowen-Bailey, 2012). Interpreter Education in the Digital Age is an international collection of innovative research on approaches to signed and spoken language interpreter education that focuses on the technology itself rather than on how technology enhances curriculum, delivery, or resources. “Our goal for this volume,” share Ehrlich and Napier, “is to provide a context for the application of technologies to interpreter education and to learning more broadly, which will bridge the gap between how we define our experiences of DE in interpreter education and how we talk about and practice it. This volume explores the potential impact of these digital experiences on our work as interpreting and language professionals.”
