Terp Talk: Let’s Talk Ethics and Your Code of Professional Conduct
Ethics will be the topic of this Terp Talk session. The importance of ethics in one’s life and career will spur on dialogue as we consider the structure and tenets of the RID Code of Professional Conduct (CPC), our perspective of the CPC, and how it impacts the quality of services provided to consumers. Facilitator for this Terp Talk will be Renee J. Moore.
This is session one of a CPC series. Seven Terp Talks will follow addressing each CPC Tenet specifically. Facilitators for this series of Terp Talks will be Renee J. Moore and Michelle Teague.
Terp Talks are conducted in a roundtable format of dialogue and facilitated learning opportunities. These sessions are hosted by the Eastern Regional Committee of NCRID. Terp Talks address a wide range of topics related to interpreting, Deaf Culture, and shared interest to ultimately improve the quality of interpreting services provided to Deaf and Hearing consumers. These sessions also strive to enhance camaraderie among professional interpreters, interpreting students, and the Deaf and Hearing communities.
Interpreters and interpreting students are encouraged to attend; Deaf consumers are always welcome to attend.
