A new generation of researchers is examining teaching practices and learner experiences integrating evidence-based research practices into education. Paul Harrelson, Annie Marks and Chan Yi-Hin provide a meta-review of evidence-based practices that support role-play activities in interpreter education. Jeremy Rogers, Kimberly Bates, and Kimberly Boeh guide us through explorations of learner experiences: Deaf student interpreters’ experiences in existing interpreting programs; 2) hearing students’ experiences dealing with and managing anxiety and success; and 3) mentees experiences with and valuing of mentoring. Stephen Fitzmaurice shares the success of infusing self-assessment throughout an interpreting program. These presentations share a common theme-the experiences and learning environments of students as they progress toward entry into our field. Each of the authors represents a new group of educators who represent a growing mastery of the set of standards for interpreter educators, including a knowledge of adult education, interpreter education, and research practices.
