Course Description

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?
