In this 3-hour online workshop, we will study memory retention techniques to improve accuracy and completeness in consecutive interpretation. We will explain how to implement each memory technique within a systematic framework called the ‘’memory algorithm’’. After presenting each technique, you will put it into practice with targeted exercises followed by personalized feedback. We will also review the most common challenges to memory retention and how to overcome them with deliberate practice strategies. This course is ideal for all interpreters interested in improving their memory retention skills, regardless of their specialization field or level of experience.

The workshop is delivered live on Zoom or can be watched as a recording. Students will need to spend 3 hours watching/attending the presentation and at least 1 hour completing the self-paced exercises which are available in the form of audio recordings, PowerPoint slides, and PDFs. In order to obtain a certificate of completion, the student must complete and pass a quiz with a grade of at least 70%.
