Abstract / Description

In this article I discuss and evaluate an approach to the design of an undergraduate module, based on a careful analysis of various variables affecting the design process. A special focus is put on the constructive alignment of the module aims, learning activities (including blended learning scenarios), assessment and feedback.

The module in question is a level 5 (year 2) undergraduate module titled Managing Translation, offered as a 15-credit (one-semester) core module on the BA Translation programme at London Metropolitan University. It was designed and implemented in order to address an authentic gap in current academic provision in the field of Translation, related to teaching professional competencies and workplace practices as opposed to subject-specific knowledge and skills.
