The three volumes in this series are all based on the principles of observational learning, an important component of human learning. Being able to observe working interpreters allows students or working interpreters to discuss equivalence, ethics, and situational dynamics in an objective manner at no risk to the observer. The scenarios stand apart from other interpreter training materials because they were not scripted and portray naturally occurring language. The interpreters did not rehearse their interpretations. All of the interpreters learned ASL as adults.
Each set includes a book and DVD. The book explains the various uses of the DVD and the importance of observational learning while the DVD contains interpreted conversations, each in a setting that normally does not allow observation.
Working interpreters can benefit from The Interpreting in Professional Settings Series to sharpen their skills and earn CEU in the RID Certification Maintenance Program. Carol is an approved RID CMP sponsor. Contact her for details to arrange an Independent Study.
