Workshop Information: 

This workshop will focus on the changing role of the interpreter using a virtual format. With the changing world interpreters across the country have been forced to interpret online. This workshop will take a look at programs that have been successful in supporting interpreters. The challenge of teaming using virtual formats will also be discussed. The participants will have the opportunity to interpret material and practice how to record and download their products and make them shareable. Interpreters will also discuss the impact of virtual learning on the clients we serve. Some of the programs we will be using are Zoom, Google duo, QuickTime, and Loom. Others will be discussed as well.
