Whether you are a beginner or an experienced interpreter, this workshop invites you to partake in an engaging and meaningful online dialogue regarding social media and the impacts on how interpreters work. We will also focus on confidentiality, and how it changes the dynamic of relationships within our field. We will be bringing in comparisons from the CPC along with standards from different fields regarding social media. Within this 2 hour online workshop we ask that each of you prepare your own set of questions to ask the facilitators. We will be opening up the discussion after a short 30 min presentation to a purposeful and organized group discussion. Challenge yourself by focusing on what the short and long term implications from social media use within the field of interpreting. Think about your work in ways you never imagined!

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to…

- evaluate their own use of social media and understand the implications of their actions within the scope of the CPC.
- outline the areas in which the CPC covers social media.
- distinguish between ways that social media is used that breaks interpreter confidentiality and trust.
