26th Annual Summer Institute for Educational Interpreters
June 11 - 14, 2018

The 26th Annual Summer Institute for Educational Interpreters will be held June 11 - 14, 2018 at the Tennessee School for the Deaf in Knoxville. This training is sponsored by the State Department of Education and the Tennessee School for the Deaf. The Institute is open to all interpreters.

Participants will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis, with priority given to those educational interpreters currently working in Tennessee's schools. Teachers of the deaf/hard-of-hearing who occasionally serve as interpreters would also be given priority. This training is designed to enhance interpreting skills in the educational setting, so it would not be appropriate for those persons who are beginning to learn sign language. Participants should have good sign language skills.

For information concerning schedule, curriculum, transportation, housing, meals, registration and fees, etc.
see the Information Letter (pdf).

School systems are encouraged to grant in-service credit to individuals who successfully complete the requirements of the Institute. Information concerning registration, scheduling and housing is attached. Feel free to contact Tina Prochaska at 865/579-2429 or
if you have any questions regarding the Institute.
