Uses entertaining vignettes to describe the National Interpreter Certification (NIC) process for interpreters and gives basic information included in the professional code of conduct (or code of ethics). Also demonstrates practical suggestions on how consumers and interpreters can work collaboratively as a team to make the interpreting process as effective as possible.
This was a great video that contained information on a variety of situations in which a Deaf individual and his / her Interpreter may experience. It discussed the Interpreter and Deaf individual being most successful when they work as a team. It also gave examples of interpreting for a doctors appointment, and during meetings with several individuals. It discussed the Code of Ethics which are the rules an Interpreter must follow. This training presentation was very informational.
Worth looking over even if you are a certified interpreter. Great reminders of the code of ethics and navigation through situations.
Excellent introduction to consumer / interpreter teamwork.
I thought that the content of the video itself was informative and good. It feels a bit dated but it gave the students some good input on how they could experience using an interpreter in different situations they may be in.
Very important for Deaf students to see this.
