Giving Feedback: The Craft of Mentors
This event was a first of it's kind and very successful!
Thank You to all who participated!
In the constant strive for excellence within the field of interpreting, less experienced interpreters are sometimes left without needed guidance after graduation. In this workshop participants will take an in-depth look at the process of providing constructive feedback to a mentee/protege. Participants will learn how "negative" feedback and "positive" feedback are perceived by the mentee/protege given various personality factors, time in the field, experience with the target and source languages, and environmental factors. Mentor-participants will practice pre-conferencing,developing feedback and post-work debriefing with mentees/proteges. All with the goal of producing more competent and qualified working interpreters through your newly acquired mentoring capabilities.
