Project as a learning environment
Scaffolding team learning in translation projects
The process of learning is fundamental to project success. In translation projects, learning is not confined to aspects of the text being translated (such as the domain, topic and text type) or to pragmatic text-related variables (such as the purpose of the source and target texts and the target audience). It extends to the project itself, encompassing the processes and tools to be used, the expectations held by various stakeholders, as well as the requirements that the project must fulfill. Empirical research shows that project managers can increase the likelihood of project success by managing the learning process for their teams and for themselves. This chapter proposes the use of the pedagogical technique of scaffolding as one way to manage learning in project teams.
