Research

The TIEM Center’s research staff is led by Dr. Elizabeth (Betsy) Winston, Ph.D. With over 25 years of research experience in educational interpreting, discourse analysis in both ASL and English, interpreting, teaching, and assessment, the Center is committed to conducting research that can be applied by educators, practitioners, and other researchers. Most recently, the TIEM Center led the Effective Practices team of the National Consortium, establishing the first coordinated research efforts in the field of interpreting and interpreter education, and raising the bar regarding the use of evidence-based practices in the field of interpreter education.

The TIEM Center’s research focus is toward research that is both accessible and applicable to the work of educators and practitioners of interpreting. Among other projects, the TIEM Center conducted the research for the Master Mentor curriculum, and the Masters in Interpreting Pedagogy, both recognized as models in the field of interpreting education.
