An ASL-English interpreter/trainer on interpreting, transliterating, and translation
Tag Archives: conference
I created this slideshow on Demand-Control Schema (D-CS) for an Introduction to Interpreting class at Phoenix College in Phoenix, Arizona, and am sharing it here for the benefit of a larger audience. This slideshow is an update on one I made for another class at Phoenix College in 2005, the day after I attended a workshop by Robyn Dean, who along with Dr. Robert Pollard introduced the Demand-Control Schema for Interpreting in 2000. I sent the original version of this slideshow to Robyn Dean when I first created it, and she acknowledged it with no corrections. I have since then taken a more advanced D-CS workshop by Robyn Dean and a workshop by Dean & Pollard at the Conference of Interpreter Trainers. Robyn Dean also spoke to our Ethics and Professional Practice class in Western Oregon University’s Master of Arts in Interpreting Studies program. Our professor and program chair Amanda Smith studied D-CS under Robyn Dean and taught us D-CS observation/supervision; in addition, members of my cohort interpret with Robyn Dean at the Rochester Institute of Technology and work with her on D-CS observation/supervision sessions. This is to say I am somewhat qualified to teach D-CS; yet I certainly welcome new and different information. If you teach D-CS and have anything to say or other resources to share, please leave a comment.
I recorded this video as a response to a researcher and interpreter trainer I met at the last Conference of Interpreter Trainers, but I’m posting it here because it applies to anyone who attends the conference next week in Charlotte, NC. I welcome everyone to come by my poster, ask me anything, challenge my research, give me feedback, etc. I will have about a month to make adjustments to my thesis before I defend at the end of November, so your feedback on my thesis-in-progress is most welcome!
Perdóname si no escribo perfectamente el español, pero estoy feliz de que me fui a la Conferencia Estatal de Arizona RID y tomar un curso práctico sobre la interpretación trilingüe — español, inglés, y lenguaje de señas de Norte América. La maestra era Kristi Casanova de Canales, y el día con ella y de los participantes fue muy estimulante. Ella es una maestra muy talentoso. Hemos tenido más tiempo para practicar que en otros talleres que he tomado en el pasado. Era muy paciente cuando yo hable vacilantemente y ella sólo hablaba lo suficiente para enseñarnos. Si usted tiene la oportunidad de tomar uno de sus talleres, usted debe tomarlo!
Me escribió la mayor parte de esto yo mismo pero con la ayuda de Google Translate.
Oh, and I guess I should translate what I meant to say in English! Forgive me if my Spanish isn’t perfect, but I’m so excited about the Arizona RID State Conference I went to today and the workshop I took on trilingual interpreting — interpreting in Spanish, English, and ASL. The presenter was Kristi Casanova de Canales, and the day with her and the participants was very stimulating. Kristi is a talented instructor! We had more time for hands-on practice than I’ve had in other workshops I’ve taken. She was very patient with me and my halting Spanish, and she only lectured enough to teach us. If you get the chance the take one of her workshops, you should!
