RISLI has organised the first Video Relay Services (VRS) Interpreting for registered Irish Sign Language Interpreters provided by Brigitte Francois. This Continuous Professional Development (CPD) will allow interpreters to develop a professional and reflexive approach to their practice as VRS Interpreters to work more competently, ethically and safely.
This Structured CPD will set in motion a thinking process in each interpreter where they will be asked to examine their strengths and motives, their understanding of what is at stake and their role and their influence as VRS interpreters. Interpreters will be equipped to become conscientious and proactive agents of their own learning as VRS interpreter and become more deliberate and confident at times of making split seconds decisions. Interpreters will develop a professional and reflexive approach on their practice as VRS interpreters in order to work more competently, ethically and safely.
