ASL Immersion (Annual Silent Weekend)
Silent Weekend at Western Oregon University
If you are looking for worthwhile workshops, great entertainment, and a chance to sharpen your skills, then this immersion experience is for you! This will be the 9th year of the Silent Weekend. This is a skill development activity over three days, conducted completely in ASL. in 2016, this event brought over 225 participants from Canada and all over the US–even Puerto Rico!
Attendees can choose between professional development workshops centered around interpreters or aspiring interpreters or workshops focused on ASL linguistics and ASL skill improvement. We are partnering with students from the Masters in Interpreting Studies at WOU to present some workshops this year.
