Deaf Interpreter Conference III
Conference Program Description: This is the Deaf Interpreters' opportunity to make the most out of this experience by participating fully in the dialogue with peers and colleagues. This conference brings together very experienced Deaf Interpreters with many years of work behind them as well as newer Deaf Interpreters that are coming into the field. The interactions we will have will show how Deaf Interpreters should be regarded in terms of what we bring to the task. The work that we do is largely unrecognized. DIC 1's goal was to create a Deaf space and serve as a platform for participants' engagement and understand in relation to our field of interpreting. Through our time together here, you'll have new tools to use to bring back to your communities and educate individuals on the distinctions and higher regard for skills we bring to this field. Workshop Offered: Attendees can choose between professional development workshop centered around Deaf interpreters or aspiring Deaf interpreters. Some of our 2017 workshop offerings were: • See through Deaf Interpreter’s Eyes: Ethical Decisions Making • Status Quo Bad Reality/Good Reality: Embrace the Changes • Empowering Ourselves: Looking Forward • ProTactile: An Introduction • THINK ME NUTHING!
