Ethics can be defined as a system of moral principles, focusing on concepts of right and wrong conduct. Interpreters can face many ethical dilemmas on a daily basis with different responses being required for different situations. Is decision-making always black and white?
We work with a diverse range of people and settings, so must make on the job split-second decisions. As reflective practitioners, we may then wonder if we adhered to the tenets of the ASLIA Code of Ethics and other obligations? Was it a defendable decision?
When interpreting work situations gets tricky, find out what strategies practitioners adopt to make appropriate interpreting choices for the assignment. Come along to this practical Ethics World Café and try your hand at those everyday dilemmas that can arise.
You are invited to join facilitators, Kirri Dangerfield and Paul Heuston, and colleagues for a fun and interactive Professional Development day. This event will be followed shortly after by the ASLIA Victoria/ Tasmania AGM.
