Negotiating Meaning at a Distance: Peer Feedback in Electronic Learning Translation Environments
Abstract: Recent research has contributed to an understanding of the positive impact that peer feedback has on student learning, but there is a lack of experimental studies that focus on how peer feedback affects student translation competence. Our study investigates whether the latter are enhanced in the Trans-Atlantic & Pacific Project (TAPP) with an experiment that included the explicit practice of student peer feedback competence and the negotiation of meaning among peers. Students – whether writing, translating or usability testing – collaborated online both within their own university peer group and with a partner university. The results of this intervention, however, suggest no clear tendencies or relation between peer feedback and meaning-related translation competence.
Keywords: peer feedback, negotiation of meaning, online collaborative learning, translation training, translation competence, formal linguistic evaluation items, meaning-related evaluation items, score development, translation problem, experimental design.
