Free Online Panel: Translation Outreach in Schools and the Move Online
The panel will reflect on the way that the recent move online, due to COVID-19 restrictions, has created new opportunities, ways of working and resources for teachers. The event is aimed at language teachers in both primary and secondary schools, librarians, educators and anyone interested in translation for children. It will touch on the initiatives being led by schools to promote multilingualism and intercultural awareness, and will offer participants new ideas and information about digital resources.
The panel brings together some of the most exciting people and organisations currently working with schools on translation and include:
- Sarah Ardizzone (a translator and the Co-Founder of Translators in Schools)
- Gitanjali Patel (a translator, social researcher and Co-Founder of Shadow Heroes)
- Greet Pauwelijn (a linguist, translator and Founder of Book Island)
- Charlotte Ryland (Director of the Stephen Spender Trust)
The panel will be chaired by Clémentine Beauvais, an award-winning writer for children and young adults, translator and Senior Lecturer in English in Education at the University of York.
