Coaching Interpreters Workshop

National Museum of the American Indian
Room 3010, Washington, DC 20561
Instructor: Emily Jacobs

Have you ever wondered how to be a better coach for your staff? Are you looking for new coaching tools such as language and methods to review your interpreters? Do you struggle with the difference between coaching and supervision? If so, this new 3-day workshop is for you!  Building upon the requests from our membership for more management skills training, NAI offers this course to give you a chance to both learn and hone your coaching skills.

During this course participants will study and practice skills including how to review a program, coaching styles and preferences and giving verbal feedback.  Throughout the offering, participants will take part in practicums designed to put new skills into practice, including coaching live interpreters.

Come join us for our newest training opportunity!


Lodging can be obtained on your own but several sites are nearby the Smithsonian/Mall.


Each day mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks will be provided.  All other meals are on your own and there are several restaurants within a short driving/walking distance.


Though several airports service Washington, DC, (Reagan, Dulles and Baltimore Baltimore–Washington International Airport) Reagan National Airport is the closest and metro accessible. Please do not plan to leave our course any earlier than 4pm on Friday to catch your flight.


$325 for NAI members/$400 for non. Additional members from the same institution all receive $25 off for each additional staff member sent.  Please contact Emily Jacobs at or (970) 420-1032 for more information.
