Carolyn Ressler. 2012 Learning Community SeriesDuring this workshop, the results of a research project on Deaf/Hearing teams were shared. Participants learned how hearing interpreters adjust their interpretations when working in a Deaf/Hearing interpreting team. Through the discussion of the findings, best practices in "feeding" spoken English messages were suggested with the goal of helping participants learn how Deaf and hearing interpreters can negotiate both the best "fed" and, most accurate final end-product interpretation. Information on how these teams can best prepare together to minimize obstacles and maximize team performance were also given. A panel of four experienced interpreters, two CDIs and two hearing interpreters, described their experiences working in Deaf/Hearing teams. In this training, participants: • Describe the differences between how hearing interpreters use eye gaze, pausing and head nods in direct verses fed interpretations •Identify difference in how fingerspelling and expansions are used in fed and direct interpretations •Understand how clarifications and corrections internal and external to the team to minimize skewing and omissions •Describe strategies for effectively pre-conference as a team before the interpreting task begins •Identify potential barriers to effective teaming1a) Deaf/Hearing Interpreting Teams Training: 4/27/121b) Deaf/Hearing Interpreting Team Panelists : 4/27/121c) Interpreting Skill Development Series: Deaf/Hearing Expert Team Training
