Description

Instructors in interpreter training programs know that giving feedback involves much more than assigning grades and moving on to the next topic. In order for students to develop and improve their skills, instructors must be skilled in the art and science of providing effective feedback. This webinar will prepare instructors to use feedback as a teaching technique that fosters the learning and performance of their interpreter students.

This webinar is intended to:

  • consider the nature of feedback and its place in the learning process
  • review the feedback student interpreters most need
  • describe ways to frame, deliver and receive feedback effectively
  • practice preparing targeted feedback
  • identify ways to track feedback and its integration into practice
