Skip Navigation LinksVictorian Deaf Education Institute > Professional Learning > ASLIA VICTORIA CONFERENCE 2017 - Moving Toward Best Practice in an Interpreted Classroom

​​​​​​Doug Bowen-Bailey is an interpreter practitioner and educator hailing from Duluth, Minnesota. Doug will draw on his extensive knowledge and experience in interpreting, interpreting education and interpreting research, to deliver a full day of informative sessions aimed at practitioners working in the field of education.

A multitude of demands are presented in this specialised area. Doug will address many of these by introducing materials and ideas he has developed that are interactive in nature, require reflective thinking and deliberate practice. His use of current research and experiential learning approaches will motivate and challenge interpreters, giving each participant the tools and strategies to enable them to reach the next level of competence.

Learning Objectives

The seminar will help participants:

  • enhance their understanding of the importance of visual information

  • learn strategies to implement these theories across the school curriculum

  • use information gathered to enhance the quality of support provided to students who are deaf or hard of hearing across all year levels

  • develop strategies to reflect on and improve professional competence

  • clarify professional values that underlie work in the classroom

  • identify professional development resources for on-going practice.​


​Please note, as seating at VDEI is limited, once in person places in the program are filled, participants will be available to take part in the program remotely.

Attendance at this seminar will provide 40 NAATI revalidation points
