2021 GTC Journey Tracks for Hearing Interpreters
The February offering for the GTC Journey Track for hearing interpreters is a course focused on effective learning and practice.
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.
This course will have facilitation by Jenny Smith-Hastings, GTC Program specialist, and Doug Bowen-Bailey, GTC Instructional Designer. There will be an “Ask CATIE” forum in the course that you can share any question in about technical issues or the course content.
Facilitation will be offered from January 4 – 31, 2021. The course will remain open after that, but there will be no facilitation.
Certificate of Completion & CEUs
This course is being offered for CEUS through RID’s ACET program for novice interpreters working toward certification. (For certified members in the CMP program, this is not an opportunity for you to earn CEUs.)
RID CEUs are sponsored by the St. Catherine University, an approved RID sponsor for continuing education activities. This activity has been approved for .8 CEUs in professional studies and assumes some knowledge content.
To earn CEUs, you need to complete the activities by February 7, 2021. The course will remain open after that, but you will not be able to earn credit.
