Collective Dialogue October 2020 Zoom Session
This virtual retreat for interpreters engaged in Collective Dialogue will explore various frameworks of inquiry regarding challenges faced in each individual’s practice, processing and reviewing how these challenges impact their interpreting work, considering these issues as they are reflected in others’ practices and identifying how they appear in the larger body of the interpreting profession.
In this peer-led environment, returning participants present questions, problems, and challenges from their practice in order to enhance their thinking on the matter. The issues presented may be specialty or venue specific. By way of dialogue* participants engage in reflection and inquiry that allow the locus of control to belong to the one presenting the question, problem, or challenge.
The longitudinal design of this constructed container of commitment to dialogue with trusted peers strengthens each interpreter's ability to identify patterns of comprehension and behavior evident in what they have been thinking and doing. The goal of collective dialogue is to bring forth what has not previously been realized, making insights available not only to the one presenting the question, but to each participant in the CD.
*specific reference to William Isaacs' definition of dialogue from "Dialogue: The Art of Thinking Together"
