Summer Institute for Educational Interpreters 2019

The Summer Institute for Educational Interpreters is a four day training in June. This training is sponsored by the Tennessee Department of Education and Tennessee Schools for the Deaf. The Summer Institute is open to all interpreters on a first come, first served basis, with priority given to interpreters working currently in Tennessee schools. Teachers of the deaf and hard-of-hearing who occasionally serve as interpreters would also be given priority.
This training is designed to enhance interpreting skills in the educational setting, so it would not be a good fit for those who are beginning to learn sign language. Participants should have a good level of sign language skills. School systems are encouraged to grant professional development points and/or in-service credit to individuals who successfully complete the requirements of the Summer Institute.
