InZone To Attend InDialog 2013
InZone is set to attend InDialog, the International Conference on Dialogue Interpreting, which will be held on 15-16 November 2013 at the Russisches Haus der Wissenschaft und Kultur in Berlin.
Organised under the auspices of EXPOLINGUA Berlin, the conference will bring together international experts on dialogue interpreting, providing a forum for sharing research findings and best practices.
The InZone panel discussion "Time To Train When There is No Time To Train" is scheduled for 15 November at 10:00am.
Barbara Moser-Mercer, Director of InZone, and Leila Kherbiche, interpreter trainer for InZone, will discuss the challenges of training interpreters in fragile contexts, where training needs can be extremely varied.
These range from improving language proficiency and learning basic interpreting skills to understanding the ethical dimension of the interpreter's work and coping with emotional distress. To address these needs under strict time constraints, trainers must be creative and adaptive, providing context-specific training and encouraging active learning.
