We close the evening by celebrating our cultural heritage with poetry from Patrick Graybill and David Rivera.

  • Identifying Hearing ASL – English Interpreter’s Current Practice in Determining the Need of Deaf Interpreters for Court Proceedings

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    This webinar will be a presentation of Christopher Tester's MA Thesis, titled: How American Sign Language-English Interpreters Who Can Hear Determine Need for a Deaf Interpreter for Court Proceedings. This study investigated how and when hearing interpreters in the United States decide there is a need for a Deaf interpreter for court proceedings.

    This webinar will be a presentation of Christopher Tester's MA Thesis, titled: How American Sign Language-English Interpreters Who Can Hear Determine Need for a Deaf Interpreter for Court Proceedings. This study investigated how and when hearing interpreters in the United States decide there is a need for a Deaf interpreter for court proceedings. Previous publications have strongly suggested that it is best practice to work with a Deaf interpreter for specific situations (NCIEC, 2007). The author utilized two frameworks: Brennan & Brown's (1997) Equality before the Law, and Mathers' (2009) Deaf interpreters in court: an accommodation that is more than reasonable to design a study that will bring to light the criteria used by hearing ASL-English interpreters to determine when a Deaf interpreter should be utilized. This research also explored the hearing interpreter's view of the Deaf interpreter and allowed for discussion of experience of working as the hearing member of a Deaf-hearing team in the courtroom.

  • Successful Educational Programs: Well-written Learning Objectives Tied to Achievement Measured Through Effective Evaluation

    Product not yet rated Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    One of the most challenging tasks for workshop presenters, instructors of continuing education and credit classes and CMP administrators is ascertaining that learning objectives are valid and robust. Then taking a critical or evaluative look at whether the programming provided achieved the desired learning objectives. During this webinar we will first explore what learning objectives are, what they must include and how to create them. We will also distinguish learning objectives from instructor objectives, a common source of confusion for presenters and administrators. The second portion of our program will consider how we measure our success. How do we build evaluation tools that link with the learning objectives and help us identify what was successful or what might need to be tweaked in the future.

  • Systems Thinking for Interpreters

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    ​The focus of this webinar is on Systems Thinking and how it can contribute to problem solving associated with interpreting. Systems Thinking is a way of thinking about, and a language for describing and understanding, the forces and interrelationships that shape the behavior of systems in which interpreters provide service. Systems thinking can help interpreters learn how to function within systems more effectively, and to act more in tune with the natural processes that exist within systems. As a result, interpreters can expand the range of controls they apply to manage demands associated within a given system.

  • Translating Wisdom into Action: Where Do We Go from Here?

    Product not yet rated Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    ​This session will provide discussion around the Strategic Planning Process in which the RID Board of Directors will engage during the Fall of 2017 and how the work of the small groups during the leadership track fits into that process. Strategic planning is critical for organizations in addressing fluctuating economic trends and market variables. For organizations that want to succeed, define priorities and direction in a strategic plan—it is like a roadmap. During periods of crisis, when survival and stability are the priority, strategic plans are interrupted and must be put on hold. But, as recovery begins and the factors leading to the crisis are stabilized, strategic planning is essential. RID has reached that point and with the help of the leadership track participants, will be able to move the planning forward.
