2023 Convention Workshops

Teaching Medical Humanities at Med School: Interdisciplinary Opportunities (and Limits)

This workshop discusses professional opportunities for humanists beyond the traditional transdisciplinary settings by exploring a new avenue for humanists in a medical school setting. It stimulates discussions about what exactly the physician-humanist interprofessional collaborations can look like, and what humanist expertise has to offer to medical education. The facilitators (MD/PhD) will share examples of their interdisciplinary, interprofessional practice.

Languages for the Professions and Specific Purposes: Spanish Court Interpreting

Based on a proficiency-oriented instruction approach, the preparation of court interpreters should include the avoidance of false cognates, reaching language equivalence, and awareness of language variation. The workshop will include multiple interpreting activities and a discussion of ethical issues.

Audio Description: The Visual Made Verbal

This audio description workshop will provide an overview of the “Fundamentals of Audio Description" (developed by Dr. Snyder) and access awareness, particularly with respect to people who are blind or have low vision.
