Bring Foundations to Your State
These specifics are necessary for determining if we can arrange for a Foundations of Interpreting seminar(s) in your state. Please submit all the information below, providing as much detail as possible for us to begin the planning process. Please note that it is best to plan 6-9 months in advance in order to secure a location, get CEUs approved, set up registration and payment, advertise, and to receive a sufficient number of registrants before a determined registration deadline.
Identify the calendar period that you're considering, at least six months from now. Foundations seminars include Friday night, full day Saturday, and Sunday morning sessions. (Exception: 2 module seminars begin Thursday night, full day Friday and Saturday, and Sunday morning.)
Include facility name, address, and any specific building or room numbers. If you have not yet identified a location, please note it is necessary to do so early in the registration process.
Who is sponsoring CEUs? How much will it cost? How will people pay for it?
Please identify potential (or definite) coordinator by name.
Provide the preferred email address for the coordinator.
Other information you may want to collect during registration. For example, if this is a Deaf Interpreter Foundations seminar, you may want to have registrants confirm they are deaf. Or if you are providing food, you may want to inquire about food allergies. Any information you want to collect, simply come up with a question and the type of response you're looking to receive.

 

 

Comments from Foundations Evaluations

What did you learn during this session?

How much there still is to learn surprised

There is validity in variety- everyone is in their own place, and that's ok.

What did you learn during this session?

How a message is 'tailored' to the audience based on the speaker's goal and what that looks like. I've never identified the CRP components and understood how critical they are to a message.

What kind of follow-up would aid in your learning development?

I kinda wanna do it all over again now that the lights have come on.. can we stay together another 3 days laughing
