Classifiers: Make the English Tangible
Presented by Windell "Wink" Smith, NIC Master

Picture a train...What do you see? Now ask a friend to picture a train and have them explain or draw what they first saw. Is it the same image you had? Most likely not. American Sign Language is no different; we all have different mental images. Another interpreter will interpret a concept completely differently than you do. This workshop will focus on harnessing the ability to take English and create a beautiful ASL interpretation that culturally bridges the gap along with respecting each other’s mental image. When we learn how Deaf people developed their language collectively, and how it evolved into the complex language it is today, we see much of that was due to their subjective view of how something worked (otherwise known as concept). This workshop will encourage participants to think about the objects and required actions in a sentence to formulate an ASL concept based on their subjective view of the world, without adding their own biases. Then participants will work to figure out ways to either convey those objects or transform them using classifiers and/or blend both all the while using Visual Vernacular.

 Idioms: Do You See What I'm Saying?
Presented by Windell "Wink" Smith, NIC Master

Idioms . . . they are confusing and can be an interpreter’s worst nightmare. However, idioms were created to be an outlet for expression to compare how someone feels, or an attempt to make a point. Interpreters are supposed to take the message and convey it with the speaker’s intent to a language most accessible to the receiver. For example, if the receiver is Deaf and their first language is ASL, the interpreter is providing ASL access until the point that an idiom is used. If the interpreter then reverts to the receiver’s second language, the speaker’s intention may be lost.
In this workshop, participants will learn how to:

CDI Foundations: A Prep Workshop

Deaf individuals interested in obtaining an RID/CDI certification from.

The workshop meets the minimum 16 hour requirement needed to take the RID CDI written exam.

The workshop, divided into two modules, RID Code of Professional Conduct and The Role and Function of a Deaf Interpreter, will provide participants with a better understanding the role and responsibility of a Certified Deaf Interpreter (CDI) and the Code of Ethics/Code of Professional Conduct broadcasted by the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID).  Participants may register for either session or both.

The first session will review the history, terminology and application of the RID-NAD Code of Professional Conduct, various ethical scenarios where they apply, and the decision making process involved.

The second session will cover four domains: professional role and responsibilities of a CDI, how a CDI prepares for Service Delivery, what provision of service would look like from a CDI stand-point, and how a CDI can effectively deliver post-service closure with a team member and/or consumers involved.  There will be a brief introduction on the concept of Demands and Control options in the field of interpreting.
