Taught by Randy Thuesen
Workshop Synopsis: Interpreters and other professionals often work in silos, which can limit opportunities for collaboration-based professional growth and problem solving. One tool to address this phenomenon is the Community of Practice (CoP). This interactive workshop will explore the benefits of establishing a CoP and how to make it productive, sustainable, and successful. You will also be given the opportunity to apply the principles discussed and create one of your own.
