Some of the comments received:

  • "Very informative webinar.  Appreciated the referrals to NCIHC resources like the bookshelf, trainers blog, and mentoring program."
  •  "I love the idea of involving students in the healthcare interpreting profession (i.e. conferences, associations, etc.), so that Real World training doesn't only focus on the interpreted encounter - there's more to the profession than what happens in the medical exam."
  • "You did lay out a useful structure for trainers to bring more real life experiences to students, and you've provided us with a range of ideas for development and use in our interpreter training."  

This presentation looks at ways to provide content for students in a real-world context.  This is often challenging because of issues surrounding HIPAA, liability, and logistics. This recorded webinar considers how to successfully find and use guest speakers, field trips, collaboration with healthcare training programs, and a practicum or internship.

The attendee will learn how to:

  • Identify learning objectives of real-world experience.
  • Establish and cultivate relationships in the community that support real-world experiences.
  • Prepare hosts, speakers and other contributors for the experience.
  • Have realistic expectations for activities.
  • Provide structure for students to effectively explore and reflect on the experience.
