NCOD INTERPRETER SEMINAR SERIES

The NCOD Interpreter Seminar Series is a monthly series of workshops geared toward interpreter professional development.  Since 1971, these monthly workshops have provided educational enrichment for interpreters in the areas of skills development, ethics training and interpreting practice.   An extensive knowledge base is required for interpreters to process an immense scope of general information in addition to handling the complexities and subtleties of human communication.  Therefore, the Interpreter Seminars continually provide the working interpreter opportunities to broaden that scope of general knowledge throughout a career.

The Interpreter Seminar Series workshops take place in September, October and November during the Fall semester, and in February, March and April during the Spring semester.  The Interpreter Seminar Series recognizes and maintains association with the National Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID), and therefore provides Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for all programs.

The Interpreter Seminar Series utilizes the expertise of recognized leaders in the field of interpreting as lecture,break-out groups, well as emerging professionals to teach/ facilitate all workshops.  Sessions utilize a combination of lecture, presentation graphics, breakout groups, hands-on practice, media, and handouts with the objective of knowledge enhancement, idea sharing and peer support.

Sessions are open to interpreters at all levels of professional achievement, from Interpreter Education Program (IEP) students, to seasoned, certified, degreed practitioners.
