Picture of the productWebinar Ethical Decision-Making (INDIVIDUAL PURCHASE)
Interpreting and translation involve managing professional relationships, and require fast situational judgement and sound professional decision making skills. This webinar will provide interpreters and translators with a framework for reflecting on ethical and other professional practice challenges. In the webinar, we will analyse professional practice challenges using the Demand-Control Schema framework, explore the goal-based (teleological) approach to ethics and professional decision making models. Participants will apply the ethical decision-making framework to authentic interpreting and translation scenarios. Speaker: Anna Kenny is a Professional Development Coordinator with NSW Health Care Interpreter Services. She develops and facilitates education and training programs for healthcare interpreters across NSW, and teaches a multilingual interpreting class at Macquarie University.

Picture of the productWebinar Telephone Interpreting (INDIVIDUAL PURCHASE)
Telephone interpreting is often portrayed as a cost effective, quick and easy way of accessing interpreter services. However, from the interpreter's perspective it can be quite a challenging area of practice due to common technical issues and the lack of visual cues. In this interactive webinar we will explore the differences between on-site and telephone interpreter-mediated interactions, the up-to-date research on phone interpreting and the common challenges that practitioners face. We also aim to provide interpreters with useful practical strategies for dealing with common phone interpreting challenges such as setting up protocols, coordinating talk, responding to silence and managing technical demands. Presenter - Anna Kenny Anna Kenny is a Professional Development Coordinator with NSW Health Care Interpreter Services. She develops and facilitates education and training programs for healthcare interpreters across NSW. She completed a Master's Degree in Interpreting and Translation Pedagogy at Macquarie University. Anna's areas of interest are interpreter ethics and decision-making skills. 20 PD POINTS (section 3.1 of the revalidation logbook)
