What is Mentoring?

VRID Presents “Mentoring 101,” presented by Sabrina Smith. This workshop will be held on Saturday, October 19th from 8:30am to 3:30pm in Roanoke, VA. 0.6 RID CEUs will be offered for those who complete the workshop.

This workshop is for seasoned interpreters who are ready to take the plunge and start mentoring other interpreters who want to improve their product. The workshop teaches participants to analyze interpreters’ products, based on their skill levels, and how to identify areas which need improvement. Whether the interpreter is novice and in need of foundational skills or is seasoned preparing for the NIC, this workshop will demonstrate ways to improve the overall interpreting product. The presenter has been mentoring for over 12 years and has worked with over 80 mentees. This workshop will share the techniques used in her own mentoring process. The day consists of going through several activities that have been helpful in improving the interpreting process. It will start with basics such as how to keep records of mentees, skill improving activities, and analysis of diagnostics. Participants will be able to use these techniques to analyze the interpreting products in their current and future mentees.

They have not locked down a location in Roanoke for the workshop quite yet, but we will keep you updated as I find out. Or if you register now, you’ll get them yourself;)

The cost for VRID Members is $50.00, for non-members it is $60.00, and for VRID students it is $25.00.

Cancellation Policy:  Full refunds will be issued if written notice is provided to VRID by October 3rd, two weeks prior to the event. No refunds will be issued within two weeks of the event start date. To request accommodations or any other questions please contact Amanda Wharton Stacey (arw.stacey@gmail.com) for further information.
