  • None

Cathy Cogen and Dennis Cokely will report on their recent study of emerging trends in interpreting and implications for interpreter education. The presentation will be organized into three primary sections: First, trends impacting current and future interpreting services assesses external trend areas that are broad in nature and have many long-term implications for the field of professionals providing services to individuals who are d/Deaf. Second, current issues in Interpreter Education describes several key dynamics at play within the field that may facilitate or impede efforts to address future interpreter education and professional development needs. Lastly, the final section of the presentation offers recommendations for aligning interpreter education with the challenges of tomorrow. In many areas, the recommendations mark a significant departure from old ways of doing business. And we will issue a call to action, asking conference attendees to consider how they will participate – as practitioners, educators, researchers, and administrators. What partnerships, practices, and policies will they engage in and support toward creating a better future?

Education for the Professional Interpreter

RID has played a leading role in establishing a national standard of quality for interpreters and transliterators. We encourage the growth of the profession, educate the public about the vital role of interpreters and transliterators and work to ensure equal opportunity and access for all individuals.

Mission – What We Do:

The Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf strives to advocate for best practices in interpreting, professional development for practitioners and for the highest standards in the provision of interpreting services for diverse users of languages that are signed or spoken.

Vision – Our Desired Future:

By honoring its past and innovating for the future, RID envisions a world where:

  • Its members recognize and support the linguistic rights of all Deaf people as human rights, equal to those of users of spoken languages;
  • Deaf people and their values are vital to and visible in every aspect of RID;
  • Interpreted interaction between individuals who use signed and spoken languages are as viable as direct communication;
  • The interpreting profession is formally recognized and is advanced by rigorous professional development, standards of conduct, and credentials.
