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).

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.
