Skill-building Workshop: Note-Taking
Have you given up on note-taking during consecutive interpreting? The appropriate use of notes can greatly enhance an interpreter’s performance in medical and community interpreting settings. The trick is learning when and how to take notes to facilitate better communication. This workshop will cover the proper role and purpose of note-taking in consecutive interpreting, and provide ample practice time for incorporating this skill into daily interpreting assignments, including: 1) How to structure notes; 2) Symbols and how to use them; and 3) When and what to take notes on.
NOTE: This is not a terminology workshop. Focus is on skills not on terminology.
