  3. May 2024 webshop: Spoken Language and Sign Language Interpreting in Healthcare Settings

Course date: May 1, 2024 to May 31, 2024.


Description: Despite the enormous similarities in our work, sign language and spoken language interpreters often have minimal professional interaction with each other. While co-teaming is more common in some settings, such as medical environments, opportunities for spoken language interpreters and sign language interpreters to team together can be rare. When they arise, both interpreters may be unfamiliar with the co-interpreting process and expectations of the other. This webshop provides an overview of the co-interpreting process, professional norms, and some considerations regarding power and privilege that ASL interpreters should be aware of, particularly those of us who are white and/or have privilege related to citizenship status or being L1 English users.

Learning Objectives: 

  • After this webshop participants will be able to:
    • Understand the importance of cultural humility when co-teaming with a spoken language interpreter
    • Identify pre, during, and post assignment controls when working with a spoken language interpreter
    • Explore how the fields of ASL interpreting and spoken language interpreting overlap and diverge
