“Proceedings Interpreter: Protocol Considerations as an Officer of the Court”  This workshop is presented in ASL This workshop will focus on the role definition of the proceedings interpreter and how that role is reflected in court protocol and procedure. Protocol relating to requests of the court, disclosures to the court, correcting the record and intra-team monitoring and collaboration will be addressed. Participants will engage in small group activities where different protocol considerations are discussed and applied.

“Advanced Skills Development for Legal Interpreters: Interpreting Lines of Questioning.”

The examination of witnesses is of paramount importance in the legal context; questioning is a structured sequence designed to elicit specific information from a witness, and is a process impacted by legal parameters and legal or investigative strategy. It is essential that interpreters are aware of these factors and possess the ability to generate accurate interpretations that conform to legal parameters and preserve the legal or investigatory strategy. This workshop will focus on an exploration of factors that signi cantly impact the nature and structure of lines of questioning in the legal context, and considerations for interpretation.

2016 OCRID Conference – April 1-3, 2016

“Exploring Identity in an Evolving Community”

Columbus Marriott Northwest, 5605 Blazer Pkwy, Dublin, OH 43017
Over the past several years, the work and experiences of ASL-English interpreters has changed dramatically. Practitioners face a variety of demands across professional settings in their interactions with diverse colleagues, an evolving Deaf community, and structural or institutional mandates that may often seem out of the control of an individual interpreter. At the 2016 OCRID State Conference, we will explore these complex demands through the concepts of identity and social justice as they impact interpreters and stakeholders in community, video relay, and educational settings. By working together across lines of social difference (including race, class, ability, gender and sexuality, status in the Deaf community, etc.), interpreters have a unique opportunity to respond to these demands in a manner that is both constructive and forward thinking. The conference will seek to examine these concepts through hands-on workshops, professional discussions, social networking, and a clear emphasis on building unity through our differences. We invite Deaf and hearing interpreters and members of the Deaf community from all backgrounds and walks of life to join us for this exciting weekend.”
