If you have ever thought about
If you have ever thought about mentoring or been asked to mentor an interpreter and thought, “I don’t have what it takes to do that”, or “that would be fun, but I’m not sure how”, then this workshop is for you! In this introductory workshop, Jen will introduce the basic foundation required to provide mentoring as a service to sign language interpreters. Based on her graduate studies and her experience developing an interpreter coaching program in Wisconsin, Jen will share strategies and insights to provide participants a structure upon which to build their own mentoring practices.
By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
1. Explain the roles and responsibilities of a mentor when working with an interpreter.
2. Discuss how coaching is essential to the work that mentors do with sign language interpreters.
3. Describe how to develop a mentoring agreement, work plan, and actionable goals with a mentee.
4. Examine their personal potential as a mentor and determine the next steps in developing their mentoring practice.
