This webinar reports on recently-completed doctoral research focusing on dialogue interpreters’ experience of task performance. The results of the study shed light on the aspects of task performance that interpreters monitor and the control mechanisms they employ during performance. In addition to reporting on the research study, the presenter will discuss the place of models in interpreter training and present the models proposed in her dissertation. During the last portion of the webinar, the presenter and special guest Cindy Roat will discuss the importance and role of research and theory in dialogue interpreter training.

Learning Objectives:

  • Present recent research findings related to monitoring and control of performance in dialogue interpreting and discuss their implications for interpreters, interpreter educators, and researchers. 
  • Describe possible models of dialogue interpreting & their potential for use in interpreter education.
  • Discuss the importance and role of research theory in dialogue interpreter training.
