Open Processes

Open Processes - Hosted by Darren Townsend-Handscomb

Please note. this is a LIVE CPD. 

You will have a proper, active teaching session with back and forth, and feedback. 

This is not a pre-recorded video of someone reading a powerpoint. 

We take professional development seriously, and we hold ourselves to high standards of training quality.

An interpreter's job is to serve the Deaf clients' needs. So, why must interpreters make all the decisions for Deaf people in interpreted situations?

“For me, I had to start by examining my own power and privilege. Upon entering any situation, I must ask the questions;
Why am I here?
Who owns this process?
The Deaf person does


Stephanie Clark, 2018

Open Process interpreting is an approach to interpreting where interpreters work with colleagues and customers to be able to apply the most appropriate interpreting model (etc.) flexibly and dynamically at any given time.
