Carla Shird: Skills working with CDIs
The fact that it is not common for deaf and hearing interpreters to work together as a team led to many questions about how to work effectively with a deaf interpreter. You may be wondering how and when you should request for a deaf interpreter and what to expect when working with a deaf or hearing interpreter. However, you may not have the opportunity to talk about how you feel about working with a deaf interpreter or hearing interpreter. How you feel about working with a deaf or hearing interpreter does affect the effectiveness of team interpreting.
Carla Shird: Understanding Power and Privilege Part 1 and 2
***Must attend both workshops in order to earn CEU's***
Deaf and hearing interpreters have conscious and unconscious power and
privilege. This workshop will help interpreters understand the roots of power
and privilege, which includes discussion on unpacking power and privilege to
help understand where they come from and how they are manifested.
RID, CASLI, and YOU:
Participants will explore together the path we have metaphorically traveled
from Ball State to right here in Hilton Head Island. Understanding our past
decisions and why we’ve made them helps us critically analyze where we need to
go in 2018 and beyond. RID derives its strength, direction, and movement from
individual members across the globe and this workshop will allow participants to
be an active part of RID’s living process of growth.
Leading the profession forward:
Understanding our collective past only gets us to the present; RID has an urgent
need to chart its future. Over the course of this workshop, participants will
identify how the association can move forward in a rapidly changing world and
how each South Carolinian can be a key catalyst for change. Together we will
explore how SCRID as an association and individual interpreters can band
together to move our profession forward.
What did she just say? Analyzing meaning for a more accurate interpretation:
This workshop will explore the central concern of interpreters- what things
mean. More specifically, we will discuss how to tell implications from
statements of fact, the differences between conceptual systems that English
and ASL are based upon, and how we form meaning in the first place. Film and
sitcom clips will exemplify principles and participants will have the opportunity
to discuss application in small groups. The first rule of interpreting is that you
must understand that which you interpret- this workshop will aim to give
interpreters the tools they need to take their abilities to the next level.
