Package Description

With Betsy Winston, PhD

Continuing education approval: ATA, CCHI, and IMIA

To perform effectively, interpreters must have highly developed critical thinking skills and advanced communicative competence, which must include both linguistic and pragmatic competence in each working language. As educators, we actively shape the future of interpreting and of our students as we guide them toward mastery of these skills and competencies. Assessing their progress is both essential and extremely challenging! This webinar discusses the use of Cognitive Reflection (CoRe) activities to support that student learning and development. As an added benefit, educators can gain valuable insights about student progress and about our own teaching strategies and approaches. In addition to providing concrete examples and recommendations for use of these activities in a variety of educational settings, this presentation shares findings and insights from longitudinal research about the usefulness and impacts of cognitive reflection (CoRe) activities in interpreter education.
