Sadly I missed the survey, put here is my input:

I think the time for paper and pencil is way behind us. CAT tools should be taught first and used as obligatory mean to teach all translation courses. "les devoirs'" should be submitted to students through a CAT tool project. Students should learn about and encouraged to use industry best practices in all their translation assignments. In simple, a good percentage of the translation university programs should reflect the real translation world.

All the best!

A question on Proz forum can be helpful here Oct 3, 2019

I have just read this post:

https://www.proz.com/forum/proofreading_editing_reviewing/274400-difference_between_"editing"_"proofreading"and_"reviewing".html

Don’t you think the answer to this question should be part on a university curriculum?
