Interpreting from the Inside Out
While every interpreter enters the field with different skills, knowledge and life experience, all interpreters follow a predictable path in developing their abilities to process language, manage situational dynamics and gauge their impact on their community inside and outside the room. The better we understand this path, the better we can teach, mentor new interpreters, and assess our own skills--and set goals for improving our practice.
Interpreting from the Inside Out introduces a new model of interpreter development and lays out the perspectives, skills, mistakes and fears that emerge in each stage. This interactive and participant-centered workshop will teach you how to scaffold your students--or yourself--to the next step.

Participants will be able to list the five stages of interpreter development.
Participants will be able to state the key components of each stage.
