Ethics and the Real You - Part 1 is the first in a three-part series exploring various paradigms in the worlds of interpreting and ethics. Sign Language interpreters make crucial decisions when we use our own life experiences to navigate our choices. In this course, we examine the various constructs of ethics and morality. Topics will include, what ethics are not, five sources of ethical standards/approaches, Framework for ethical decision-making, Ethics every day, who is your community? Five Questions: A Systematic Approach, Values Clarification, Consistency, Ethics, Life Stages, Conscience and Authority, who counts? Moral Standing, Interpreting Models, and Interpreting and Audism. Using the RID/NAD Code of Professional Conduct as a guide, we navigate some of the most difficult judgment calls. “Ethics and the Real You - Part 1” is a five-week course involving video lectures and activities you do in your own home or workspace with an optional Zoom meeting once a week for one hour. This course will assist you in defining your ethics, your values, and how you apply those to specific dilemmas.
