What is the “Road to Deaf Interpreting” Workshop Series for Deaf Interpreters?
RDI is proud to introduce "Road to Deaf Interpreting" Training Series for the third time! This is an interpreter preparation workshop series especially for Deaf people. It will provide the same level of training offered to hearing interpreters but will be specifically adjusted to meet the needs of Deaf persons entering the Deaf intepreting field. The program is offered 18 weekends spread out over a two year period. At the end of this program, new interpreters should feel ready to enter the field as mentees and more experienced interpreters should feel more comfortable with their level of training and knowledge to begin doing more and varied kinds of interpreting.
These workshops will be offered on a non-credit basis. Students interested in Continuing Education Units (CEUs) or ACET can get them at no fee charge (sponsored by Northeastern University Regional Interpreter Education Center) if they are RID members. Each workshop in the series includes in-class lectures, discussions, and exercises; homework assignments; reading, video tapes, and projects; and a final evaluation. See FAQ for more information on cost and location.
Deaf, Coda, and hearing instructors who are interpreters and/or members of DeafWorld will participate as guest presenters for some of the courses.
