Description: 

The healthcare system is made up of practice professionals, including interpreters. Perhaps one of the most challenging aspects of the interpreter’s daily practice is that each decision depends on a multitude of factors. Interpreters can ensure their decisions promote communicative autonomy through intentional practice and self-evaluation. But where does one start with evaluating performance? This workshop will guide interpreters through a self-evaluation tool that offers a tangible way to identify strengths and areas of growth. Interpreters who routinely evaluate their own performance support the advancement of the profession and further demonstrate their value as a member of the healthcare team.

Learning Objectives

1. Discuss the self-evaluation tool and how it supports remote interpreting skill development.

2. Identify reflective, non-judgmental questions to ask yourself while working with the self-evaluation tool.

3. Discuss why self-evaluation is necessary as practice professionals and how it supports communicative autonomy of all.
