About me

In Adrian’s doctoral dissertation the main topic is language and translation pedagogy in higher education. Both areas have historically overlapped and contributed to mutually related interests, and their corresponding classroom practices have definitely benefitted from both the field of linguistic and translation studies. For the educational researcher, examination and analysis of teachers’ actions and classroom dynamics is important in order to update key assumptions of teaching procedures and results.

His thesis work is expected to present current insights about teaching practice from an international comparative study of 3 higher education institutions in the Nordic and Baltic areas that offer similar language and translation programmes. By closely examining the repertoire of instructional strategies used by practitioners of language and translation pedagogies, the aim of this project is to contribute to the body of knowledge in the fields of descriptive pedagogy, teacher training and curriculum design in the near future.
