It Takes a Village: Team Interpreting and the Open Process Model

Participants will learn who and what makes up a team. Participants will learn how to communicate their teaming needs and evaluate what their teaming process looks like. We will also discuss the Open Model of Interpreting, what it looks like and who benefits from it. Participants will have a chance to practice these teaming techniques throughout the presentation.

Participants will engage in practice scenarios, activities and discussion. When the seminar has concluded, participants will be able to identify when to use the Open Process Model of Interpreting.
