The Sixth Volume in the Interpreter Education Series
From Reference & Research Book News
Shaw (exceptional, Deaf, and interpreter education; U. of North Florida, Jacksonville) shows how insight from experiential learning studies in other fields can be applied to students of interpreting. People studying to be interpreters should be immersed in the Deaf community not only to learn sign language, she says, but also to absorb the values and customs of the community. Among her topics are modifying the curriculum: alliance with the Deaf community; course development: logistics and structure; teaching academic reflection; Deaf community perspectives: reciprocity and collaboration; and case studies in interpreter education.
Sherry Shaw is Associate Professor in the Department of Exceptional, Deaf, and Interpreter Education and Program Director of the ASL/English Interpreting Program at the University of North Florida, Jacksonville, FL.
