I will be presenting my Vague Language (VL) workshop at a silent weekend at Western Oregon University on Friday, August 12, from 2:30 to 5:30 pm. This event is sponsored by the Western Region Interpreter Education Center (WRIEC) and happens to follow the first two–week colloquium of the first cohort of the Masters in Interpreting Studies / Teaching (MAIS) at Western Oregon University. I am excited about beginning my master’s degree and teaching about vague language (VL) at this silent weekend. Please register by completing the form below and check out the tentative agenda and topic abstracts. Hope to see you there!
Early Bird registration fees available only until July 1st. Registration, tentative agenda & workshop abstracts also at http://www.wou.edu/education/sped/wriec/silent_weekend.php
From the Silent Weekend coordinator:
On behalf of the ASL/English Interpreting Program at Western Oregon University, the Western Region Interpreter Education Center, the Oregon Department of Education’s Educational Interpreter Subcommittee, the Regional Resource Center on Deafness, and the Oregon Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf, we would like to invite you to join us for our third annual Silent Weekend, August 12-14, 2011 in Monmouth, Oregon. This weekend, conducted completely in American Sign Language (ASL), is for Deaf and hearing students, interpreters, mentors, interpreter educators, and ASL instructors.
Attendees and presenters can choose from two possible tracks – although they may participate in both – with corresponding workshops. The first is interpreter professional development, which is for working and pre-professional interpreters. The second track is for students and community members to develop their ASL skills and further learn linguistic features of the language.
Interpreters: This is an opportunity to earn up to 1.4 CEUs! If you are looking for some worthwhile workshops and a chance to sharpen your skills, then Silent Weekend is for you!
