Two weeks to Silent Weekend at Western Oregon University, and it’s not too late to register! I’m not presenting this time, but some of my MAIS cohort are, so take advantage of fresh scholarship!
Annual Silent Weekend
The Western Region Interpreter Education Center and Western Oregon University are co-hosting the fourth annual Silent Weekend immersion experience at Western Oregon University, July 20-22nd.
Save the Date for the 2012 Silent Weekend: July 20th – 22nd
Silent weekend is conducted completely in American Sign Language (ASL). The event is for Deaf and hearing students, interpreters, interpreter educators, and ASL instructors. It is held at Western Oregon University during the summer.
Attendees can choose from two possible tracks 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 learn linguistic features of the language.
There are opportunities to earn up to 1.4 CEUs during this weekend. If you are looking for some worthwhile workshops, some great entertainment, and a chance to sharpen your skills then Silent Weekend is for you!
