Storied Classrooms: Narrative Pedagogy In American Sign Language–English Interpreter Education, Brenda S. Nicodemus, Janis Cole, Laurie Swabey 2021 Gallaudet University

Storied Classrooms: Narrative Pedagogy In American Sign Language–English Interpreter Education, Brenda S. Nicodemus, Janis Cole, Laurie Swabey

International Journal of Interpreter Education

Narrative pedagogy is an educational method that draws on the power of stories to cultivate learning. Narrative has been described as the fundamental way that individuals “make sense” of events by connecting new information to their own lived experiences. In this article, we argue that narratives are underutilized in American Sign Language–English interpreter education, perhaps due to concerns about confidentiality. This article describes an educational project that incorporated narratives from experienced medical interpreters into an interpreting course. The primary learning objective for students was to become familiar with specific competencies necessary for successful practice in medical settings. Drawing on ...


Recommendations For Interpreter Training For Asylum Interview Settings: The South Korean Case, Jieun Lee, Moonsun Choi 2021 Ewha Womans University

Recommendations For Interpreter Training For Asylum Interview Settings: The South Korean Case, Jieun Lee, Moonsun Choi

International Journal of Interpreter Education

The growing number of asylum applications submitted in South Korea and the recent passage of the Refugee Act (2013) call for a system for the provision of professional interpreting service and the training of interpreters for the asylum process. Although a few ad hoc training initiatives have been implemented in recent years, there is currently no training course that fulfills the requirements of the Act. This article thus aims to propose an appropriate training program for the certification of interpreters to be engaged in asylum interviews. To ensure the effectiveness of the training, the proposed training framework begins with prescreening ...


Formalizing Community Interpreting Standards: A Cross-National Comparison Of Testing Systems, Certification Conventions And Recent Iso Guidelines, Jim Hlavac 2021 Monash University

Formalizing Community Interpreting Standards: A Cross-National Comparison Of Testing Systems, Certification Conventions And Recent Iso Guidelines, Jim Hlavac

International Journal of Interpreter Education

Community interpreting has become a global phenomenon, and the need for standard assurances of practice is being met by credentialing systems that certify a community interpreter through testing and/or training. This paper examines credentialing systems in Australia, Canada, Norway and the UK and poses the questions of whether the spread and development of testing systems has led to a widening of the skills now required for community interpreting, and whether testing alone is a means for the demonstration of all of these skills. Some attributes of credential candidates are pretest admission prerequisites. Testing alone is the common pathway for ...


Reaping The Benefits Of Vicarious Trauma, Michael A. Harvey 2021 Private Practice

Reaping The Benefits Of Vicarious Trauma, Michael A. Harvey

International Journal of Interpreter Education

This article illustrates a mode of inquiry for reaping the benefits of experiencing vicarious trauma that can be utilized in interpreter education, mentoring and supervisory relationships, debriefing, and personal reflection. An adaptation of constructivist self-development theory and a narrative therapy approach are described. The latter approach includes the uncovering of what is absent but implicit, the uncovering of actions reflective of one’s personal agency, the relevant skills that one utilizes, and the social/relational history of these skills. Mitigating the risks and reaping the benefits of vicarious trauma may catalyze significant professional and personal growth such as clarification of ...

Understanding The Work Of Designated Healthcare Interpreters, Laurie Swabey 2021 St. Catherine University

Understanding The Work Of Designated Healthcare Interpreters, Laurie Swabey

International Journal of Interpreter Education

Interpreters who work regularly with a deaf health professional are often referred to, in the U.S., as designated healthcare interpreters (DHIs). To date, there have not been any systematic studies that specifically investigate the work of DHIs, yet the number of deaf people pursuing careers in the health professions continues to grow (Zazove et al., 2016), and the number of qualified DHIs to work with these professionals is insufficient (Gallaudet University, 2011). Before educational programming can be effectively developed, we need to know more about the work of DHIs. Using a job analysis approach (Brannick, Levine, & Morgeson, 2007), we surveyed DHIs, asking them to rate the importance and frequency of their job tasks. The results indicated that the following task categories are relatively more important: fosters positive and professional reputation, impression management; demonstrates openness to ...


Interpreter Intervention And Participant Roles In Witness Examination, Eva Ng 2021 University of Hong Kong

Interpreter Intervention And Participant Roles In Witness Examination, Eva Ng

International Journal of Interpreter Education

The court interpreter code of ethics in general requires interpreters to restrict their function strictly to interpreting and to refrain from clarifying ambiguity with the speaker, especially with the witness. The code usually suggests that permission be sought from the court if interpreter intervention is unavoidable. Empirical studies show, however, that departure from this ethical code is commonplace. Drawing on an authentic courtroom trial in the High Court of Hong Kong, and using Goffman’s (1981) participation framework as the analytical tool, this article aims to illustrate how the court interpreter changes her participant role in the court proceedings by ...


Lost In The Shuffle: Deaf-Parented Interpreters And Their Paths To Interpreting Careers, Amy Williamson 2021 Gallaudet University

Lost In The Shuffle: Deaf-Parented Interpreters And Their Paths To Interpreting Careers, Amy Williamson

International Journal of Interpreter Education

Deaf-parented individuals have experiences as child language brokers (Napier, in press) and as native and heritage users of signed language (Compton, 2014) prior to engaging in a formal interpreter education program or seeking training to become an interpreter. Anecdotally, deaf-parented interpreters say that educational opportunities do not meet their specific needs and skill sets but instead are designed for the L2 user of signed language. A goal of this study was to expand the limited research that currently exists in the field of interpreter education as it relates to L1 users of American Sign Language (ASL)—specifically, deaf-parented individuals. This ...
