Are you full? Managing Your Processing Capacity - 

Presenter Chris McGaha

What happens when our brains have trouble handling all the information coming in- whats really going on? How do we manage the source language and produce an equivalent message? Interpreters will discuss the components at the Effort model of interpreting and how we can manage our processing capacity so as to become more effective in our interpreting. Language Availability and Message Equivalence will be discussed in relation to the work as well as what potentially causes our processing to slow down.

2:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Healthcare Interpreting - A Body Systems Approach 

Presenter Stephanie Winslow

* Endocrine System

  • -       Identify the organs, structure and function within the endocrine system
  • -       Analyze a native signing model demonstrate a description of the structures that comprise the endocrine system.
  • -       Copy and internalize the signed features demonstrated by the signing model
  • -       Watch a signing model sign a description of the disease and, in small groups, develop a signed description of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.
  • -       As a small group, develop text-to-sign interpretation of a patient information guide related to diabetes.
  • Note: No participant will be “put on the hot seat”. All work products will be the result of collaborative work and group consensus. Individuals may volunteer to contribute, but the culture of this workshop will be positive, supportive and focused on a growth process.  Native signers will be shown as language models through video and/or in-person.

Mentoring: An Investment in our Profession - 

Presenter Chris McGaha

During this workshop, participants will discuss a working definition of mentoring and why it is vital to our profession and our consumers. We will walk through the stages of mentoring based on other highly skilled professions and how they might apply to the interpreting profession. Peer networking, developmental networks and ethical mentoring will be discussed and applied. Participants will collaborate on developing a professional development plan and practice plan.
