Mentoring the Mentor

 Registration is closed for this event

Summary of Event.

This workshop is designed for veteran interpreters who have wanted to pass on their hard earned experience to newer interpreters but haven’t yet taken the plunge. Simple and immediately applicable skills and techniques will be examined and practiced in a safe learning environment. Current vocabulary and best practices will be summarized and questions answered to support successful mentoring. Create a legacy: step up and reach behind! Workshops presented in ASL.
