WEBSHOP: Internet Resources for Interpreters and Translators

An Interactive Webshop

What is a “webshop”?
  A webshop is just like an interactive onsite class, but held online through Zoom. 
During a webshop, you can ask questions and engage in discussion. You may be divided into “break-out” rooms where you’ll be working with other participants on exercises or on practicing a skill. There may be quizzes and polls. So, while there may be some PowerPoint and lecture, this is not like your typical webinar. Your full attention and participation is expected; that’s what makes it fun!

What is it about? Details will be available soon.

When?  Saturday, October 10, 2020, 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. PST
