Integrated and open interpreter education

Interpreting Studies faculty at Western Oregon University invite you to contribute to an Open Educational Resources (OER) they are developing on educating interpreters. OERs offer authors and readers free and open access to current, relevant, easy-to-access, and free materials. Our intent for this project is to create a space where emerging scholars, from varied and diverse backgrounds,  in the field of signed language interpreting will make contributions with the ability to revise as the interpreting studies discipline and the scholars develop and change.

In this project, each of the five editors will develop a collection of reading and ancillary materials on a specific content area. All contributors will retain rights to their own work. As authors continue to grow, they are encouraged to create and contribute new content over time. The goal of this OER is to offer faculty and students readings and practical application experiences that connect program specific coursework and concepts across the interpreter education curriculum emphasizing the holistic nature of the field of interpreting.
