Purpose of the second National Symposium on Video Interpreting: Video Remote Interpreting is to explore current practice in video remote interpreting (VRI). This symposium will address where VRI is being done, and who's doing it. It will explore current practice, research, and implications for the field of interpreting by looking at applications in both signed language interpreting and spoken language interpreting.
Process: The Symposium will provide stimulating presentations along with interactive discussion between members and presenters. The symposium will bring together consumers, practitioners, educators and researchers of video remote interpreting.
Format: Pre-recorded presentations, delivered via a NING portal, allowing participants to view the training from their individual computers. The presentations will then be opened for interactive discussion among members and presenters. Presenters will further facilitate the learning process through provision of articles or PowerPoint's related to the topic, provide discussion questions, and moderate a discussion board to the topic. Using the strength of a discussion based symposium, the third day will be facilitated participant-driven discussions composed of conference topics and themes.
Audience: Interpreters, Deaf and Hearing consumers, interpreter educators, vocational rehabilitation personnel, providers of video interpreting, interpreting researchers, and other interested persons.
