Peak Performance for Interpreters: Practice right
As interpreting students and new interpreters we spend much time practising, but have we been taught to practise effectively? And what is effective practice? As seasoned interpreters we may slowly drift away from recording and monitoring ourselves. Does that mean we do not practise any more? Should we practise at all?
This session for interpreters: practice right gives you an overview of different types of effective practice, whether you’re new to the job or very seasoned. Based on research into “deliberate practice” the session provides you with tools to improve your performance through focused and appropriate practice. And, no, it doesn’t tell you that you can do anything if you just put in 10,000 hours!
There is a Facebook Group that those who have watched Practise Right can join: The Community of Practice Interpreter Support Group.
The remaining sessions are:
- Prepare right, which will help you gain new insight into preparing for interpreting assignments,
- Work right, which will help you understand the mechanisms involved in interpreting and will show you exercises to improve your skills.
