2018 neRID Fall Conference – Level Up! – Classifiers and the Ethics of Just Making Up a Sign

Saturday morning September 29, 2018
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.
