In this presentation, the presenters will explain a project that explores collaboration between and among interpreters and interpreter educators from Ghana, the United States, and the United Kingdom. They will describe the context, address the learning objectives of a short-term professional development program, expand on how a western teaching approach is co-constructed and modified to align with Ghanaian cultural expectations and norms.
