October 15 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
FREE workshop opportunity made possible by SLRS and OSU-OKC who have partnered together for those in the field of interpreting, who are Deaf or otherwise interested.
Workshop will be presented by Dan Martin and held at OSU-OKC, South Campus, Public Safety Training Center // Room #116.
All workshops will be accessible for Deaf and Hard of Hearing participants..
Description: At the beginning of our careers, we find ourselves experiencing a level of anxiety when we are thrown into certain interpreting situations. Sign-To-Voice interpreting in front of our peers is one of these situations. This workshop tackles this common challenge with a pragmatic approach that allows each participant the opportunity to experience hands-on practice in a setting that exposes them to real-life interpreting assignment anxiety.. Additionally, methods of dealing with that anxiety will be discussed during a question and answer time.
