Consecutive Note-Taking Workshop

September 2, 2021 / 9:00 am - 2:00 pm EDT

Be ready to actively participate in practice sessions designed to enhance your consecutive interpreting techniques.

This interactive workshop will include a presentation of the main elements of a note-taking system for long consecutive interpreting, followed by one-on-one practice. It consists of two, two-hour sessions with a one-hour break in between.

Special Notes

  • This workshop is limited to 14 advanced-level interpreters.
  • Credentialed interpreters receive priority. Confirmation of payment does not guarantee you a seat as we will vet all attendees for credentials and/or experience before finalizing registration. We will maintain a waitlist once we reach 14 attendees.

What will you learn?

  1. Review and practice of a complete note-taking system
  2. How structure in notes can be used to present meaning
  3. How to use notes to improve delivery
  4. How to use symbols in notes effectively
  5. How to note less and remember more

This webinar was organized with the assistance of ATA’s Interpreters Division.
