2021 GTC Journey Tracks for Deaf Interpreters
The July offering for the GTC Journey Track for Deaf interpreters is a course focused on deliberate practice for deaf interpreters.
This online workshop consists of four modules with a series of interactive activities, readings and videos to provide information, and discussions/assignments to apply the learning practices. The course begins looking at deliberate practice and how important it is for deaf interpreters. Information and activities about deliberate practice is mixed in with information from Peter Brown, author of Make it Stick: The Science of Successful Learning. Participants will be asked to engage with the ideas by creating summaries in alternate languages about information.
Successful participants will be able to:
- list four big ideas about the science of successful learning;
- describe the difference between unfocused and deliberate practice;
- practice describing ideas related to successful learning and deliberate practice in both ASL and English,
- identify at least 5 activities for future professional development.
