Telling the Story – developing advanced skills in BSL to English interpreting

Cost from £25

Clare’s first webinar, Voiceover – finding the story behind the signs, was met with rave reviews such as:

“Clare was a great presenter!” and

“Can honestly say I have no negative points to provide..all questions were answered”

So we’re really glad she’s come back to develop the subject further.

In this advanced webinar, Clare will briefly revisit the terms and language from her first webinar then build on this to introduce further tools which learners can apply to their BSL-English interpretation. This webinar is suitable for both qualified and interpreters and will assist you to build on the skills you already have.

Speak and ye shall find: how interpreting creates barriers in ethical reasoning skills

Cost from £25

What cognitive biases could be screwing up your decision making?

What values inform your practice and how do they differ from domain to domain?

How developed are interpreters’ moral judgment and ethical reasoning abilities?

What impact could that have on the assumptions they make in their day-to-day interpreting?

Robyn Dean has informed interpreter training worldwide for many years and joins Linguistpd to discuss the above. She will also share findings from her PhD data which investigates the ethical reasoning abilities of sign language interpreters studied in the US and makes recommendations for future training.
