Description: This popular course is back! Both Deaf and hearing interpreters are invited for in-depth, meaningful practice in a supportive environment. 

Learn to recognize opportunities to use depiction, expand your linguistic toolkit, and increase your confidence with ASL discourse features. Participants will explore the vital components of effective ASL discourse: advanced non-manual signals and facial grammar, classifiers, constructed action/dialogue, and more. Integrate these features into your work in a variety of interpreting settings. Participants will have hands-on practice interpreting medical, technical, and narrative source texts, to create more effective and engaging interpretations.
