OKRID 2020 Call for Presenters
The Oklahoma Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (OKRID) is an affiliate chapter of the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf. In its efforts to support the personal and professional growth of both Deaf and hearing interpreters in our community, OKRID is hosting an bi-annual conference that offers opportunities for interpreters to broaden their knowledge base regarding American Sign Language (ASL) and interpreting as well as stay abreast of current issues within the interpreting and Deaf communities.
This 2020 conference will be held in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, on June 26 and 27th, with a pre-conference event on June 25th.
Presenters are encouraged to submit proposals for workshops focused on skill development or professional issues. Topics of interest to the presenters committee include, but are not limited to:
Power and privilege
Educational (K-12) interpreting
Deaf/hearing interpreter teams
Interpreting for the LGBTQ community
The primary language of the conference is ASL; however, presenters are given the option of presenting in either ASL or English. The conference committee will work to make all presentations accessible in line with presenter preferences.
There will be concurrent workshops. We strongly encourage interactive presentations and ample time for questions and answers. The size of the workshops will vary depending on attendees’ interests. All workshops are structured to be ethical and/or professional development opportunities and may not incorporate sales presentations. It is expected that the workshop will address the content submitted in your proposal.
Format: Successful presentations will include opportunities for participants to engage in activities or discussions. Conference feedback consistently indicates that attendees prefer well-organized workshops with activities, demonstrations, time for questions, and additional resource information. Your workshop could also include a variety of networking activities. As a professional courtesy, please cite all sources.
Handouts: Presenters will have the option of either printing their own handouts and bringing them to the conference or submitting electronic copies of the handouts in PDF format by May 15, 2020. Any material with a copyright will not be reproduced without the express permission of the author. It is your responsibility to obtain written permission. PowerPoint presentations should be converted to PDF format.
Submissions are due by December 15, 2019.
