Self Analysis: Space & Concept Equivalency (Intended Audience: Hearing Interpreters) [1 RID CEU] (IS-P-01)

This course offers new and seasoned interpreters the opportunity to take a critical look at how space is used within an interpretation when working from spoken English to ASL. Participants will work off of a brief spoken English sample and provide a cold interpretation. This cold interpretation will then be used by the participant to analyze their work. Additionally, participants will analyze sample interpretations and conduct a comparative analysis. This work will then culminate in participants reinterpreting the original sample with the goal of incorporating as much appropriate space as possible with a final analysis of their cold and finished interpretations. This course is intended for hearing interpreters, and in particular, those for whom ASL is not their first language. While this is the intended audience, all ASL interpreters are encouraged to deliberately examine their use of space and this course may provide support in doing such.
