Role-space: You’ve Heard the Term But What Does It Mean?
Facilitator: Christine Monikowski, Ph.D,

Understand the concept of Role-Space and apply it to our work in the educational setting. Although this online community specifically targets educational interpreting settings, this information can be applied to interpreters working in a variety of settings. For experienced interpreters, this information will probably not strike us as new but the terminology and the research validates choices we make on a daily basis.

Discourse Analysis: Context, Cues & Communication Strategies
Facilitator: Betsy Winston, Ph.D.

Understanding discourse and discourse analysis is essential for interpreters, interpreter educators, and frankly, for anyone who participates in communication! Communication and interpreting are, after all, nothing more nor less than discourse analysis in action. Explore discourse as language in use, focusing on four major themes in discourse analysis: 1) emerging meaning; 2) interaction; 3) choices and decisions; and 4) context.
