CIT 2014 – Workshop | Nourishing Our Roots
In this session, research findings from a survey of deaf parented interpreters will be shared. Through the survey findings, participants will learn who deaf parented interpreters are; how they entered the field and what backgrounds they bring with them. With this backdrop, participants will reflect on personal experiences in educating students from deaf parented families and explore curriculum elements found within their own programs that contribute or hinder the learning experiences of deaf parented interpreters. By looking critically at the experiences of deaf parented interpreters, participants will be able to glean insight into what a bilingual interpreter education can look like when students begin their education with proficiency in a language pair.
