Courses and Descriptions

AEIR-2003Ethics 1

This is the first of two courses in ethics for ASL-English interpretation students. The course introduces students to the theories of moral development and branches of ethical study such as applied ethics, descriptive ethics, and meta-ethics. The notion of personal and cultural identity and bias will be explored at length. Students will engage in discussion and activities that address issues in individual, social, and professional ethics and how they apply to the interpreter working between two cultural and linguistic groups. Students will also examine the Association of Visual Language Interpreters of Canada's Code of Ethics and Guidelines for Professional Conduct from a historical perspective and compare it with current thought and ethical practice.
