Today’s spotlight is on

The Next Generation of Research in Interpreter Education

by Cynthia Roy, Betsy Winston, Paul Harrelson, Annie Marks, Chan Yi Hin, Jeremy Rodgers, Kimberly Bates, Kimberly Boeh, Stephen Fitzmaurice

Proceedings abstract

In this interactive session, a panel of new interpreter educators will compare their personal narratives and elaborate on “what I wish I would have known as a new interpreter educator.” The presenters will share their realizations of working in institutions among colleagues and students as well as new research and data-based practices about personal development and leadership. Participants and presenters will brainstorm and share ideas of how experienced interpreter educators and new interpreter educators can partner together to establish mentorships, mutually provide support, and encourage ongoing collaboration. What do you wish you would have known? Whether you are a new or seasoned interpreter educator, come and join the discussion on becoming, mentoring, and supporting the educators that will lead us to new heights.
