Session Information: 

The goal of this workshop is to introduce the concept of community of practice as described by Wegner, McDermott, & Snyder (2002) and explore what that looks like for the ASL/English interpreting profession. Interpreters can feel like they may not have enough resources or work in a vacuum. Membership in a community of practice fosters professional support and increased awareness of changes in the profession. Workshop will be presented in ASL.
