Current Issues in Educational Interpreting

Cyber Seminar Description:

This cyber seminar is an opportunity to interact with educational interpreting colleagues. These colleagues may include, but not limited to, educational interpreters, their supervisors and mentors, community interpreters, teachers of the deaf and hard of hearing, administrators overseeing educational interpreters, and other members of the educational team.

In this seminar, participants will read and discuss four current articles on educational interpreting over a period of six weeks. These articles have been selected because they are written by practitioners or researchers and they represent current and on-going issues in our field. They also demonstrate the professional direction in which our field is headed.

As we study and discuss these articles, we will contemplate issues related to the K-12 grade students Individualized Education Plan (IEP) and how the educational interpreter's job applies, downtime in the educational setting, current educational interpreting legislation, and job titles, job descriptions and job qualifications.
