Interpreting Field Experience
Prerequisite: ASL 4131 and INT 1000
Description: This course will introduce students to a variety of environments where interpreting services might be provided. Through observation, shadowing, and community involvement, students will gain an understanding of the human dynamics and linguistic variations in a wide scope of settings that include meetings, classrooms, inservice trainings, one-on-one interactions, and public forums. Students will apply the NAD-RID Code of Professional Conduct to setting evaluations and use the Demand-Control Schema to shape discussions of context-specific dynamics and decisions. The course emphasizes cultural literacy and requires 60 hours of field-based experience under the supervision of a faculty advisor.
