Master Mentor Program
The Master Mentor Program is a certificate program preparing
American Sign Language professionals to serve as mentors.
Mentors are experienced professionals and specialized edu-
cators who provide guidance, support, and direction to newly
graduating and less experienced professional incumbents at
all skill levels.
Mentors guide adult learners in a process of professional
self-discovery, helping them make the transition from educa-
tion programs to the working environment. Mentors can also
provide support to working professionals to move to the next
level or acquire a new skill. Participants must be a nationally
certified interpreter for at least five years prior to entering the
program.

Mentoring I - August 10 - October 11, 2015
The objective of level one is not for students to learn mentoring by
learning what others know about it. After starting out with some
grounding in the field, students work with a range of materials and
experiences in order to develop their own deeper personal under-
standing of mentoring. The purpose of the survey is to help them
produce their own maps for exploring their future work in the field.
Mentoring II - October 12 - December 13, 2015
The course begins with an exploration of current research into lan-
guage reception, processing and production and the part played by
language skills in the complex task of interpretation. Students focus
on locating error patterns that novice interpreters display and then
learn how to feed this perspective into assessment and skill devel-
opment activities. During the course, students alternate in the roles
of mentor and mentee as they practice assessment and interactive
mentoring feedback skills with their peers in the on-line course
environment. As they do so, they are asked to pay particular atten-
tion to the processes and possibilities of distance mentoring using
chat rooms and on-line group discussion capabilities.
Mentoring III - January 4 - March 13, 2015
The course focuses strongly on the skill enhancement aspects of a
mentor's work. Students are introduced to the theory and practice of
meaning-based approaches to promoting interpreter development.
Mentoring IV - March 14 - May 15, 2015
The main focus for students in the course is to carry out their indi-
vidual fieldwork projects successfully. In addition, students con-
tinue their exploration of portfolio as a mentoring tool, by com-
piling the mentorship component of their portfolios. Students are
also expected to reflect on their overall progress in becoming master
mentors as they apply their skills and insights to independent work.
