Conference Delivery Format

Due to precautionary occupancy limitations imposed in the interest of public safety, UTRID’S 2021 A.R.T IS NEVER ENDING Conference will no longer offer tickets for face-to-face attendance. With the exception of an outdoor socially-distanced networking event, all conference proceedings will be held virtually through video conferencing software. Conference proceedings and workshops will be accessible to virtual participants via moderated, interactive live-streaming technology. Unlike past conferences that have featured cafeteria-style schedules, this year’s conference will follow a linear schedule to provide stable live streaming. Hopefully, this online delivery approach will enable practitioners from throughout the state and the greater region to join the conference this year. Visit the conference registration page to procure your ticket!

UTRID Business Meeting

As previously planned, the UTRID Business Meeting will be held shortly after Noon on Saturday, Aug. 7th. Elections for available positions on the Board of Directors will be conducted virtually. Board positions on the ballot include Vice President, Treasurer, UAD Liaison, Conference Chair, and Professional Development members-at-large. Additional information regarding nominations and elections may be viewed here. Award nominations and presentations have been postponed until further notice.

Alternative to Traditional Banquet

Instead of a traditional banquet, the conference will include an additional opportunity for continuing education credit in an interactive virtual activity—“Escape 2020.”

Alternative Funding Opportunities

The Planning Committee is cognizant of the community’s growing financial concerns in recent months. We invite those who are able to sponsor a fellow interpreter’s admission to the conference; donations may be credited to a specific interpreter or contributed to the Sponsor an Interpreter 2021 A.R.T IS NEVER ENDING fund. Practitioners encountering financial adversities in the pursuit of professional development activities should consider utilizing UTRID’s Scholarship offerings.

Thank you for your continued interest and patience as the conference has adapted amidst such uncertain times. Please direct questions to Conference Chair Deborah McHenry at conferencechair.utrid@gmail.com.

Effective Learning Objectives

Learning/educational objectives should achieve three primary objectives by providing:

  • Insight into the expected learning for potential participants of an event. Learning objectives or outcomes should clearly delineate what the Participant can expect to learn and apply to their work.
  • Guidance to Facilitators/Instructors in the preparation and fulfillment of educational activities by ensuring that the educational activity remains focused and meets the appropriate level of instruction within the time defined.
  • Information to the Sponsor to determine whether the activity is one that is deserving of CEUs and the applicable Content Level. 

More information can be found in this issue of the VIEWS and provided by the University of Alaska.

UTRID 2020 Sub for Santa | Bring the Holidays Home

Bring the Holidays Home with UTRID

UTRID 2020 Bring the Holidays Home from Webmaster UTRID on Vimeo.

 

My name is Marc Chance, and I am speaking on behalf of UTRID,  (Utah Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf). Now is again that time of the year, when UTRID hosts an exciting event known as Sub for Santa. This wonderful charity event sponsors families, who have faced unexpected challenges in recent months. Christmas may be a difficult time for some who are experiencing lean times. It is up to us in the community who are capable to make a difference in such people’s lives, and to make Christmas a little more merrier for them.

Some of you who may have participated in this event in that past will recall that we have had a giving tree at the Deaf Bazaar, where people would select items to purchase and donate at our cookie and donation drives. However, the COVID pandemic has compelled us to adapt the events towards a safer alternative for everyone. This event will be entirely virtual.

We are sponsoring two families. We have asked them to create wishlists with three or four items per member of the family. This year, we are having a wishlist on the Amazon Registry, which is open for everyone to view. If you would like to purchase an item on the wishlist, please do so. Purchased items will be sent directly to the families. In order to donate, please visit the link below and take a look at the list.

Alternatively, if you prefer to make a financial contribution, it can be done through PayPal or Venmo. The information for that is below. We rely on the support of generous individuals and businesses in our community like you. If you are able to sponsor this project with a donation, we would be most grateful for your support.

Thank you so much for your generous consideration of our request. We wish you a very happy and a safe Christmas, and to a time when we all can meet again.

AmazonTo send your purchase to the UTRID branch of Santa’s Workshop, please select the “UTRID c/o …” shipping address at check-out. Thank you so much for your generosity. Happy Holidays!
