Crafting the Training and Testing of Interpreting Students towards Employability
Abstract: In July 2012, the Integration Decree contained an important reorganisation of the higher education landscape in Flanders. Following this, the integration of Erasmushogeschool (ehb) into the Faculty of Arts of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) as from the 2013–14 academic year called for an ‘academisation’ of the core training curriculum for interpreting students. Attuning the curriculum meant adopting a research-oriented approach driven by a theoretical framework and implementing innovative pedagogical tools to comply with the general objectives and vision of the university whilst keeping the specific objectives geared towards professionalisation.
Despite the fact that Translation Studies research has been gaining momentum over the last years, little has been written about the changes induced by the integration process on didactics of interpreting.
