Simultaneous Interpreting & Sight Translation

Sight Translation: During this workshop we will emphasize and practice the importance of public speaking skills when sight translating. We will also dive into deep document analyzation with pair and group work.

Simultaneous Interpreting: During this workshop we will emphasize and practice many short, strong, and stable techniques to improve your simultaneous interpreting. You will be able to apply these to your independent personal simultaneous practice. We will collaboratively set a goal or two to continue this journey!

Bone Up On Your Skeletal System

Students will participate in lively discussion regarding the axial and appendicular skeletal system, joints, and major bone disorders. We will apply and evaluate the new knowledge through movement exercises. In addition, participants will engage in “Flipped Learning” techniques in order to continue their growth outside of the classroom.

Interpreting in Victim Services: Wellness Techniques

Students will participate in discussion regarding the signs and symptoms of vicarious trauma. Techniques to manage interpreter’s emotional response before, during and after victim service encounters will be introduced. Students will apply and evaluate the new knowledge through role play, as well as design a self- care plan. In addition, participants will engage in “Flipped Learning” techniques in order to continue their growth outside of the classroom.
