Effective Practices for Teaching Interpreting: Domains and Competencies

In 2000, Project TIEM.Online, directed by Dr. Betsy Winston, received a Department of Education grant (#H160C030001). One major goal of that grant was to investigate, and design, and implement a curriculum for teaching teachers how to teach interpreting. From that research and design, a set of domains and competencies for a teaching program was developed. A 3-stage formative evaluation process of those domains and competencies was designed.
