Needing CEUs this summer? Check out these online options. (ASL Workshops)

Interpreters, ITP Students, Parents, Family, Friends……….

Are you aware of what’s out there online you can use from the comfort of your own home or sitting at Starbucks for CEUs or Professional Development? I actually use on-line workshops myself. I am not affiliated with these in any way so this is not advertising. But I thought I would share some of these great resources out there for those who don’t know.

CEUs On The Go is a great resource for RID approved workshops. Make sure to follow the instructions listed. They make it really clear to follow the instructions but if you don’t you will end up needing to start over. If you need the CEUs for another entity other than RID you can print off the certificate of completion for you records after you pass the Post test.

Every workshop I have taken has been very informative by top notch national presenters.

English Equivalents: Time After Time

English Equivalents is a powerful workshop that will guide participants in finding ways to express idiomatic translations from American Sign Language (ASL) to English, and from English to ASL. Many signs are complex and not easy to translate. This video workshop will give you the skill to express idiomatic and technical ideas effectively. English Equivalents in ASL will help you confidently continue the flow of information exchange between the languages. Trix demonstrates this process with a myriad of practical examples and useful principles. The focus of this workshop is on Time Indicators.

1.5 clock hours and .15 CEU available

ASL Extreme Makeovers: The Art of Personification

Learn how to “change yourself” into someone or something else. In literature, the technique of “personification” gives an inanimate object, a plant, or an animal characteristics that make it seem “human”. The object shows emotions and takes on human-like behaviors. You can use this technique in American Sign Language to “become” a book, a flower, or even a butterfly! Trix will demonstrate how to personify characters and shift roles within your story. You’ll learn how to “become” a baseball, basketball, beach ball, bowling ball, football, marble, ping pong ball, racquetball, soccer ball, water polo ball, and more!

1.5 clock hours or .15 CEU available

Video Demonstration of Personification: Bobber

Are you aware of the increase in immigrants in America is the largest of any time period since World War II? The proportion of these new immigrants is changing our employment, business and schools. The population of the 21st century will bring a high proportion of ethnic minorities. Most research suggests that our work worlds will reflect even greater cultural diversity. This brings new learning opportunities for interpreters who encounter Deaf consumers and their families.

Interpreters might be familiar with their own cultural heritage and background, but unfamiliar with persons from a different racial/ethnic background.
