MENTOR: Let Your Skills Be Shared!
Troy University's Professional Development Institute in conjunction with the Interpreter Training Program in the College of Education is excited to announce that the Master Mentor Program (MMP) is scheduled to "re-launch" at Troy University.
The MMP program will run from August 2016 until May, 2017 and consists of four online courses including an at-home or optional on-campus practicum.
Mentoring I Mentoring II Mentoring III Mentoring IV
The MMP is being developed in tandem with the EXIT Program - internship for Interpreters from TROY. The externship program at Troy will provide graduating interpreting students from Troy University's Interpreter Training Program with mentoring for one year to obtain certification!
The Master Mentor Program is a completely online certificate program preparing professionals to serve as "mentors." "Mentors" are experienced professionals and specialized educators 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 education 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 beginning the program.
This program was formally provided by the TIEM Center (Teaching Interpreters, Educators, & Mentors) hosted by the University of Colorado at Boulder and Northeastern University in Boston.
Students work with the key theoretical models of interpreting and mentoring processes in order to identify when, how and why mentors can facilitate skill progression in mentees. They then apply these ideas in extensive assessment and mentoring practice activities.
The course begins with an exploration of current research into language 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 development 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 attention to the processes and possibilities of distance mentoring using chat rooms and on-line group discussion capabilities.
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. They explore two key theories in this area, the Goal–to-Detail approach, developed by Sandra Gish, and the use of discourse mapping as a mentee guidance resource, as presented by Winston and Monikowski. Students identify the essential elements in interpreting practices that convey the central meanings of the source texts. They then learn how to work with mentees on prioritizing that particular set of processing and production skills. They have an immediate opportunity to apply their insights though discussion and on-site/Online mentoring activities.
In addition to their work on meaning-based strategies of mentee guidance, students continue their explorations in the development and use of portfolios, and enrich their experience of open peer discussion and collaborative and cooperative learning. Students emerge from the course equipped with a strong sense of their own philosophy, confidence in their practical skills as a mentor and a clearly defined fieldwork project that has benefited from several stages of refinement through peer collaboration and faculty review.
