"Interpreter" - What's In a Name?

Original Air Date: December 4, 2014 
Presenter: Anna Witter-Merithew

Description: This 90 minute webinar, hosted by Texas DARS, addressed the various perspectives on what it means to be an interpreter in today’s society. The presentation addressed four essential perspectives—the metaphorical perspective on interpreting, the theoretical perspective on interpreting, the experiential perspective of consumers and the experiential perspective of practitioners.

Each of these perspectives was considered from a historical vantage point and the implications of our identity and practice as a result of each lens. Additionally, various models of what it means to be a professional practitioner and how these models influence our thinking, behavior and actions was explored. The session was concluded with a question and answer period.
