Using Social Media for Peer-feedback in a Translation class: a case study

Two weeks ago, at the 7th LLAS e-learning symposium in Southampton (#LLASelearn12), I gave a presentation entitled “Using Social Media for Peer-feedback in a Translation class: a case study“. I presented the preliminary results of a study I have been conducting in one of my final year undergraduate translation classes, where I used a social online platform (based on Ning) to get my students to discuss their work before and after class.

My talk focused on two main points: the set-up of the platform and the rationale behind it (why I didn’t use Moodle, or Facebook) and the early feedback I received from my students in terms of usefulness of the task.

Watch the presentation on video.

You will also find a copy of my slides on SlideShare.
