Do you ever feel stuck in a rut with your skill development? Take a step back from traditional mentor/mentee workshops. Join us for a look at Peer Mentoring. Peer Mentoring is focused on as effective means for interpreter development and improvement. Additionally, we will discuss several types of mentoring (i.e. Peer, Traditional/Collegiate, Distance/Remote, Workshops/ Training and Deaf/Interpreter) and how we all can improve through the mentoring process. This workshop will also help you with goal-setting – you will walk away with goals you can implement right away. We will discuss useful resources, tools and strategies for effective mentoring relationships.
TOPICS OF DISCUSSION:
Types of Mentoring • Resources for Mentoring • Language (ASL Development & Fluency) vs. Skill (Interpreting Process) • Strategies for Observation vs. Feedback • Effective Language to Use During Feedback & Discussion • Teaming and When Teaming Can Become Mentoring • The Setting of Short/Mid/Long Term Goals
