Języki publikacji
Virtual Classes (VCs) make up a pedagogical tool taking advantage of videoconferencing for simulations of interpreting. Up to the present, the Institute of Applied Linguistics, University of Warsaw, has been the only interpreter training center in Poland to offer this type of a blended learning model. VCs were originally designed to meet the requirements of the training within the EMCI (European Masters in Conference Interpreting) program implemented by the Institute as the Polish member of the EMCI Consortium. The aim of this paper is to present the findings of a longitudinal study based on observations of the trainers and trainees involved in preparing, carrying out, and reflecting on VCs.
