0.6 Professional Studies
ASLIS is an Approved RID CMP Sponsor for Continuing Education Activities. This Professional Studies program is offered for a total of 0.6 CEUs at Some Content Knowledge Level.
What value does talking with colleagues about the decisions you make during an interpreting assignment have? The purpose of this workshop is
-To gain hands-on experience applying the D-C schema through the use of situational analysis tools.
-To understand and accurately identify the elements in supervisory conversations that create a “best practice process.”
-To learn how to use these teaching tools (situational analyses) with mentees, accounting both for the accurate application of the schema and in the teaching opportunities that emerge from these exercises.
-To understand the use and benefits of the observation-supervision approach which builds on and utilizes the D-C schema for effective training in content-specific fields (e.g., medical, mental heath, legal).
*MUST ATTEND BOTH DAYS IN ORDER TO RECEIVE CEUS. We will not be approving partial CEU credits.*
ASLIS virtual workshops are NOT recorded for later viewing.
