Have you had a great team interpreting experience? What made it so great? Perhaps
Have you had a great team interpreting experience? What made it so great? Perhaps it was the support or positive encouragement or judgment-free debriefing. Sometimes it can be hard to pinpoint what specific factors contributed. Whatever the reasons are, we can agree that a great team can relieve some cognitive load of even the most experienced interpreters in the hot seat.
What are the elements of a good team? How can we replicate a good team experience that can help mitigate interpreting demands resulting in more effective outcomes for our consumers? We will address those questions in this interactive workshop using both anecdotal and research-based teaming content. Participants will engage in group discussions and activities to make practical application of the 5-C method.
1) Identify the roles and responsibilities for each team member.
2) Describe the foundational elements of an effective team using the 5 Cs.
3) Recognize gaps in common teaming practices
4) Develop strategies for incorporating the 5-C method in their team practice.
