NOTIS’ Community Interpreters Division presents

Tailor Your Training:  Adaptions You Can Make to Improve Your Interpreting Skills

Presented by Eliana Lobo

What is it about? Whether in a conference workshop, webinar, or in a classroom-based setting, interpreters can be faced with the challenge of extracting meaningful personal learning experiences from content that may exceed (or be far below) their individual skills and prior experience. Basic pedagogical concepts such as Bloom’s Taxonomy and how to create rubrics will be introduced. Methods for customizing learning for different degrees of difficulty, as well as learning preferences, will be demonstrated in an interactive manner.

This webinar is designed to provide attendees with a variety of tools and strategies to be able to customize skills drills and techniques to one’s individual skill level, and to set stretch goals.

  • Learn about Bloom’s Taxonomy and how to apply it to a desired skill or learning
  • Understand what Rubrics are and learn and how to create and apply them
  • Learn how to increase or decrease the level of difficulty of sample exercises
  • Gain strategies on how to prepare activities that are challenging to your skill level
  • Learn how to modify existing content, to be able to address your learning preferences

    Step-by-step examples of how to use and apply said tools will be demonstrated and discussed.

    Learning Objectives:

    Attendees will learn how to:

    • Understand how to use Bloom's Taxonomy as a guide to establishing clear learning objectives targeting specific skills and levels of proficiency 
    • Learn how to adapt training material to create learner-centered experiences that work for you  
    • Learn how to utilize tools to create rubrics and include technology in your self-improvement plan

    Presentation level: All levels of experience

    What is a Webshop? A webshop is just like an interactive onsite class, but held online through Zoom. During a webshop, you can ask questions and engage in discussion. You may be divided into “break-out” rooms where you’ll be working with other participants on exercises or on practicing a skill. There may be quizzes and polls. So, while there may be some PowerPoint and lecture, this is not like your typical webinar. Your full attention and participation is expected; that’s what makes it fun!
