Snow Date: Troy, NY Foundations I Rescheduled to December 14-16, 2018

 

The November 16-18, 2018 Foundations I Seminar with Betty Colonomos was rescheduled due to snow. Those who were registered for the November 16-18 seminar and could make it have been transferred to the December seminar. We are at 18 people and looking for just a few more to ensure this will happen. Please register!

If you need an alternate payment plan, contact Denise using the Contact Form on the registration page and let her know you'd like to register for the December 14-16 weekend. We are hoping to move ahead with the December seminar!

Group of interpreters engaged in discussion.The Bilingual Mediation Center directs its energy to the development of tools and processes which foster understanding and respect for each other's needs and goals as interpreters.

Our approach is to serve interpreting communities offering custom-designed professional development programs that work with them on a continuing basis. Each community has a unique history, varied demographics, and a range of issues to consider. Both locally and nationally, BMC places emphasis on finding approaches to creating change in a constructive manner.

Through this approach BMC offers sequential instructional sessions, with adequate spacing to allow for practice, experience, and integration of skills taught in earlier trainings.

We provide these services:

  • Direct training of interpreters at all levels
  • Development of appropriate assessments and diagnostic tools
  • Assistance to interpreter educators by designing curriculum and effective methods for teaching interpretation
  • Implementation of programs to refine performance (e.g.. mentorship)
  • Creation of materials to assist interpreters to develop further
