Fall 2018:
Webinars from the TIEM Center!

Looking for Advanced Learning Opportunities? Challenging Topics? RID CEUs?

Don’t just sit there! Join us for any of our 3 exciting interactive webinars. Two of them explore the concepts and applications of Role-Space Theory! This pioneering state-of-the-art theory with wide-spread application for interpreting and interpreter preparation—but what does it mean, and how do we infuse it into our work?
A third explores concepts in discourse analysis for interpreters and educators! As our understanding of discourse, meaning, and interaction continue to grow, we discuss new ideas and applications for interpreting and education.
Take advantage of these opportunities for advanced level professional development experience as we explore the ramifications and applications of role-space in interpreting, interpreter education and mentoring!

Webinar 1: Role-space: You’ve Heard the Term But What Does It Mean?

Facilitator: Christine Monikowski, Ph.D

Dates: September 17 – October 21, 2018 (5 weeks)

Understand the concept of Role-Space and apply it to our work in the educational setting. Although this online community specifically targets educational interpreting settings, this information can be applied to interpreters working in a variety of settings. For experienced interpreters, this info will probably not strike us as new but the terminology and the research validates choices we make on a daily basis.

Facilitator: Robert G. Lee (co-author of Redefining the Role of the Community Interpreter)

Dates: October 8-21, 2018 (2 Weeks)

Webinar 3: Discourse Analysis: Cues, Context and Communication

Facilitators: Drs. Betsy Winston and Cynthia Roy

Dates: September 17-October 7, 2018 (3 Weeks)

Understanding discourse and discourse analysis is essential for interpreters, interpreter educators, and frankly, for anyone who participates in communication! Communication and interpreting are, after all, nothing more nor less than discourse analysis in action. Join us to discover discourse as language in use, exploring four major themes in discourse analysis: 1) emerging meaning; 2) interaction; 3) a series of choices and decisions; and 4) context.
