Lecture: "The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning"

Date and Time:
6 November 2013
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Merrill Learning Center (MLC) - B111

In the third lecture in their colloquium series, the Department of Interpretation presents Dr. Christine Monikowski and her lecture, "The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning."

The study of interpreting between American Sign Language (ASL) and English is a relatively new discipline linked to linguistics, communication, sociology, and studies of social interaction. The dramatic increase in ASL/English interpreter education programs in institutions of higher education across the United States requires instructors who can succeed in the academy, which often means completing doctoral degrees and navigation through the tenure and promotion processes. This presentation discusses the challenges faced in interpreter education - teaching, practice, and research - and offers reflections on the "academization" we are experiencing including changes in our programs and faculty.

Danielle Hunt will provide a response to the lecture.
