Feedback-giving: Honing our skills


This seminar will be led by Raquel Schaitza and Julia Poger . It will be preceded by a pre-course benchmarking activity completed at participants' convenience.

After Robin Setton's detailed coverage of this important topic in 2018, it is time to get down to the nitty-gritty of feedback-giving and hone our skills in an interactive, shared-learning atmosphere.

This course will offer a unique opportunity for trainers to think about feedback and exchange experience, while discussing a few theoretical issues and doing practical exercises based on real student interpreting performances.

Instruction will be in English.  A basic knowledge of French would be helpful but is not necessary
