This one-day workshop-style course is aimed at interpreter trainers interested in expanding their portfolio of teaching methods applicable to all interpreting modalities. Participants will become familiar with the basic tenets of Cognitive Task Analysis and learn how to decompose the interpreting process for the purpose of developing targeted exercises addressing transferable skills.
