    FRID Engaging, Evaluating, and Discussing

    "Accept or Decline? Questions Sign Language Interpreters Should Ponder" (.2 CEUs)

    This is a hybrid independent study and discussion group opportunity for working interpreters and interpreting program students that focuses on analyzing articles and videos related to various important and pertinent topics in the interpreting field.   

    Registrants will receive an article with associated discussion questions to read, evaluate, and answer before the event and then discuss with the group of participants at the event.

    The participants’ answers must show they have completely read the article and have enough knowledge of the topic to become actively involved in the group discussion. There will be a one-hour group discussion of the article and the discussion questions.

    This is an interactive way to earn CEUs, discuss important and interesting interpreting topics, and learn something new!

    Facilitated by Eli Sierra & Katryna Demetriou
