Whether we'd like to admit it or not, Fall is definitely here. Cooler nights, shorter days, and children heading back to school. Time for interpreters to go back to school too and with several workshops taking place across the state, professional development should be an easy find.
Paul Fugate kicked off the school season with a workshop on Educational Interpreting on August 25th at the Royal Oak Library. Ideal setting for such a topic.
September 14th and 15th Trix Bruce will be at the Schoolcraft VisTaTech Center in Livonia, Michigan. Friday evening will include a short workshop on voicing skills and evening entertainment. Saturday promises a workshop on classifiers.
October keeps us busy with a DODHH Advisory Council meeting on the 19th and a workshop at Madonna University on the 27th entitled "Deaf and Hearing Interpreting." For Hearing and Deaf Interpreters alike.
November 3rd and 4th, MIRID will host its fall workshop at Kalamazoo Valley Community College. They're still looking for certified interpreters to work the event and presenters interested in sharing their knowledge. Visit mirid.org for more information.
If you hear of another workshop that hasn't been mentioned here, let us know! We do our best to keep our event calendar filled with all of the state wide events, but occassionally we miss a few. And if you haven't liked us on facebook yet, check us out! We post regularly about local events and other fun stuff.
Hope to See you Soon!
