Interpreter Workshop - Zoom

Questions & more information please contact Sharon Sinkler: sharon.sinkler@nebraska.gov

Saturday, July 18th, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm: “Test: A Four-Letter Word” (0.6 CEUs)  Many of us see “Test” as a four-letter word we do not like to hear. We experience a fear when taking any interpreter screening test. Fears such as: do we have the knowledge needed, will we freeze up, or testing anxiety, to name a few. This workshop is for interpreters who are ready to take one of the many different tests available but are nervous about what to expect. The workshop will teach strategies interpreters can apply when taking written or practical tests. There will also be an opportunity for interpreters to video their own product and have it analyzed in groups, therefore participants are asked to bring a smartphone or device to record. Interpreters will also to learn strategies to alleviate anxiety before they take a test. 

Educational Objectives:  

  • Interpreters will demonstrate knowledge of testing strategies
  • Interpreters develop a plan to help eliminate their testing anxiety
  • Interpreters will demonstrate skills needed to take the current tests in the field
