Ensuring Effective Communication: A Look at Effective Feedback and Active Teaming
Justin LeeCENTURY 1
"As communication specialists, interpreters often have a hard time communicating for themselves. Whether through the school of hard knocks or a formal training program, we have all learned our own methods of communicating. However, these methods are not always effective nor received well. Communication is a two-way street, where lanes are sometimes blocked and often have speed bumps or potholes. How do we effectively communicate with our consumers our role? How do we effectively communicate with team members to provide feedback on skills or provide back channel feedback? How can we team effectively? This workshop will lead participants in understanding the ethical implications of providing effective communication to their consumers through the lens of the Code of Professional Conduct, learn what effective feedback looks like, learn to identify patterns in interpreted discourse, and have an opportunity to practice providing effective feedback during the course of the workshop."
