0.2 Professional Studies
ASLIS is an Approved RID CMP Sponsor for Continuing Education Activities. This Professional Studies program is offered for a total of 0.2 CEUs at Some Content Knowledge Level.
The workshop will introduce the concept
The workshop will introduce the concept of Role Space, a different perspective which examines how interpreters are a part of every interpreted interaction and do influence what happens between consumers. It will show how the traditional role, as outlined in codes of ethics/conduct, often inhibits the development of a relationship between consumers and what interpreters can do make an interaction more natural. This concept runs counter to what interpreters have been taught for decades and sheds light on past ineffective approaches as well as new ways to make an interaction more successful and fulfilling for all involved.
As a result of this workshop, participants will be able to:
1. Define Role Space
2. Identify the three attributes of Role Space
3. Describe how the three attributes interact
4. Apply the model to historical data
5. Apply the model to personal experience
