Aston University, Birmingham, UK

Free training event supported by the School of Languages and Social Sciences and CLaRA (Centre for Language Research at Aston)

Following the conference “Data Quality in Eye Tracking and Translation Studies Research”, this workshop will offer hands-on training for post-graduate students and early-career researchers interested in doing research in Translation Studies using eye-tracking methods. It will provide insights into how to design eye-tracking experiments in translation studies and how to analyze the data.

The workshop will cover aspects related to the different stages of research projects using eye tracking:

  • Experimental design and triangulation
  • Pilot testing
  • Data collection
  • Data processing
  • Ethics
  • Data sharing and open data

 The participants will have the opportunity to get hands-on experience and discuss the issues that normally arise when exploring the production and reception of translations using eye-tracking methods. Drawing on examples from previous projects, participants will learn about the decisions made by researchers at different stages of their project and will become acquainted with the intricacies of eye-tracking research. The workshop will also allow participants to discuss their own research ideas with the workshop leaders and other participants.
