2021 RID National Conference - Demystifying Professional Development and CEUs - Asynchronous
This webinar is 0.2 CEUs in the category of Professional Studies (PS) and is presented at the Little to None Knowledge level.
Many interpreters - whether they have been working for many years, or are still studying for their certification exam - have questions about how to engage in professional development effectively, and some even ask why they should. What creates an effective learning environment? I am already certified; why do I have to take more workshops? I have seen it all; how can I find educational activities that are worthwhile? What distinguishes Professional Studies from General Studies programs? Why can I not carry over my excess CEUs to the next cycle? What can I do if I find an RID-sponsored educational activity ineffective? I want to see changes in the Certification Maintenance Program (CMP); what should I do? And there are many, many other questions.
In this session, the PDC will solicit questions about continuing education, CEUs, certification maintenance, and the role of the PDC, among other related topics. The PDC aims to identify and respond to common areas of confusion, and to provide some guidance on effective ways of engaging in continuing education. The PDC hopes to leave participants with the sense that learning can be relevant, worthwhile, and even fun. The PDC will also collect concerns and suggestions from participants for future consideration by the PDC.
