Research Methodology Seminars at ASTI

In a bid to implement the vision of the Advanced School of Translators and Interpreters (ASTI) and instill its flagship position in terms of professionalization and research, the seminars in research methodology and socio-professional immersion were revamped. The initiative was welcomed and turnout was impressive during the sessions organized by the Head of Division, Prof L. S Ayonghe. The sessions organized during the 2021/2022 academic year focused on 2modules namely:

Module 1 :

« Les 6 universeaux de la recherche scientifique », Dr Manga

“Process-oriented research: generalities of translation process research issues”, Dr Meh

Module 2:

“Conduct of research – ethical considerations in supervisor-supervisee relationship”, Prof Sakwe

It is intended that the seminars during the upcoming 2022/2023 academic year will revolve around the following axes:

  • Research methodology for students,
