Today’s spotlight is on
Reaching New Heights in Graduate Interpreting Education: A Panel Discussion
Moderated by Dr. Jeremy L. Brunson
Proceedings video abstract
There has been a long history of teaching interpreting within a professional degree paradigm – focusing on technical skills. This is traditionally taught at the undergraduate level. Taking our lead from spoken language interpreters, sign language interpreting scholars have begun to develop graduate programs in the United States and the United Kingdom with a focus on the research and theoretical underpinnings of interpreting – Interpreting Studies (IS). In an effort to reach new heights in interpreter education, this panel discussion with faculty members from the United States, the United Kingdom, England, and Germany, will explore the aim of graduate programs in IS and how that may differ and overlap with graduate and undergraduate trainings in interpreting. The panelists are renowned scholars for their work in interpreting training, as practitioners, and their contribution to the research of IS.

About this Spotlight Series
CIT has played a significant role in the history of interpreter education in the United States. The conference proceedings on this page include workshop abstracts, papers, and business meeting minutes for many of these conferences.
The goals of the Proceedings Spotlight are to highlight:
- the valuable information and hard work that has gone into creating the CIT Proceedings,
- the importance of CIT in the history of interpreter education in the United States, and how conference proceedings have played a part in furthering interpreter education,
- different ways that Proceedings can be used to enhance and support research, education, and mentoring within the interpreting field,
- and positive outcomes, such as student success or enhanced skill development, as a result of applying the information shared within the CIT Proceedings.
