ITP 145 ETHICS IN INTERPRETING COURSE DESCRIPTION

The Code of Ethics of the RID (Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf) is the central focus of this course. We study each of its tenets and use actual incidences to gain better insight into how the Code applies. In addition we will discuss the influences of our own personal values, mores and to become aware of our own prejudices and biases in the context of an interpreting situation.
