Emerging Trends in Interpreting and Implications for Interpreter Education
Presented in ASL

Cathy Cogen and Dennis Cokely will report on their recent study of emerging trends in interpreting and implications for interpreter education. The presentation will be organized into three primary sections: First, trends impacting current and future interpreting services assesses external trend areas that are broad in nature and have many long-term implications for the field of professionals providing services to individuals who are d/Deaf. Second, current issues in Interpreter Education describes several key dynamics at play within the field that may facilitate or impede efforts to address future interpreter education and professional development needs. Lastly, the final section of the presentation offers recommendations for aligning interpreter education with the challenges of tomorrow. In many areas, the recommendations mark a significant departure from old ways of doing business. And we will issue a call to action, asking conference attendees to consider how they will participate – as practitioners, educators, researchers, and administrators. What partnerships, practices, and policies will they engage in and support toward creating a better future?

Emerging Trends

Presented in ASL

The 2015 Community Forum, “Igenda or WEgenda: How do we define “we”? What is the place of the “I” in the interaction?” will address a range of issues such as: generational differences, the implications of the Deafhood movement for interpreters, the power of our words and exploring the difference between having access and having to ask for access, our interface with the emerging field of CDI’s and future trends in the Deaf and interpreting communities. Moderators, Carol-Lee Aquiline and Lynnette Taylor will be joined by presenters Wing Butler, Patrick Graybill and Marvin Miller to frame the evening’s discussion. Dennis Cokely, Sarah Hafer and Erica West Oyedele will join in a panel discussion that follows. Participants will have the opportunity to come together in small group discussions to respond to the issues raised and then share in an open forum. Our goal is to identify a series of doable actions that can be taken individually and collectively. We close the evening by celebrating our cultural heritage with poetry from Patrick Graybill and David Rivera.
