Skill Level Up! – Classifiers and the Ethics of Just Making Up a Sign – Deb Cates

Interpreters in educational settings often struggle to represent content in areas where there are not content-specific standardized ASL signs. This workshop will review classifier types and use and will discuss methods for
using classifiers to make semantically appropriate signs. This workshop will include a discussion on the ethical issues of interpreter sign creation and how it impacts student’s long-term outcomes.

Inventory Level Up! – Mentoring 101 Sabrina Smith

This workshop is for seasoned interpreters who are ready to take the plunge and start mentoring other interpreters who want to improve their product. The workshop teaches participants to analyze interpreters products, based
on their skill levels, and how to identify areas which need improvement. Whether the interpreter is novice and in need of foundational skills or is seasoned preparing for the NIC, this workshop will demonstrate ways to improve the overall interpreting product. The presenter has been mentoring for over 12 years and has worked with over 80 mentees. This workshop will share the techniques used in her own mentoring process. The day consists of going through several activities that have been helpful in improving the interpreting process. It will start with basics such as how to keep records of mentees, skill improving activities, and analysis of diagnostics. Participants will be able to use these techniques to analyze the interpreting products in their current and future mentees.

Skill Level Up! – A New Generation of Slang – Sabrina Smith

WARNING: This workshop has bad language. This workshop is also English based and focuses on English slang. Have you ever been interpreting and heard the phrase “Wow, you be channeling the chucks!!!” or “I can’t believe he threatened to steal on her!!” We all experience hearing slang working in educational interpreting, VRS, or Freelance settings, the problem is, what do we do with it? This workshop takes a look at slang that is used by the current generation of youth and addresses the issue of what does an interpreter do when they hear these phrases. Working with younger generations means understanding their language and being able to interpret it effectively. This workshop demonstrates vocabulary that will help educate interpreters on current slang, how to interpreter slang, and what to do when they are faced with terms they are unfamiliar with. The workshop allows participants to devise skills when going from English to ASL as well as working on the register needed to match their clients intended meaning. There is also a focus on skills such as: eye gaze, matching affect, register, and the overall expressive product.
