With onsite transliterating life as we know it having come to a screeching halt, we have all been forced to recreate ourselves in this new “remote world of work”. It is a steep learning curve indeed! This class will help you embrace this new world by helping you de-stress regarding the “newness", become familiar with new online platforms, and tweaking and practicing receptive strategies based on onsite techniques while remembering our Code of Conduct.  Through whole group and small group activities, partner work and break out “rooms” with deaf consumers, we will use combinations of discussion, hands-on practice and games to familiarize participants with this remote world while also practicing receptive strategies for communication provision. 

Presenter: Jane Dolan is a nationally certified cued language transliterator and a transliterator trainer for Language Matters, Inc.  Jane's family was the very first to learn to cue from the inventor of Cued Speech, Dr. R. Orin Cornett. Her family then began cueing English with her older sister, Leah. This makes Jane the first native hearing cuer and one of the first cueing transliterators. Jane worked for several years at the Cued Speech Center in Raleigh, North Carolina, where she taught many cued American English classes and did transliterator mentoring. For the last fifteen years, Jane has worked as a freelance cued language transliterator, primarily in the post-secondary educational setting. She is passionate about the proper practice of cued language transliteration and is an active transliterator trainer with LMI.  Jane has also served as president of the North Carolina Interpreter Transliterator Licensing Board.
