On March 14 and 15, a ToT (training of trainers) seminar was organized by EMCI, an international consortium of European master’s programs in conference interpretation. All SCIT trainers were invited to participate in this seminar. The first day was devoted to the use of modern technologies in interpeters’ work and, accordingly, the impact it has on the educational process. University representatives spoke about the experience of using AI in the making of training speeches, in modeling real working scenarios, using technology in the process of work and in preparation for interpreting, as well as about the development of specialized training courses on the use of technology in interpretation. The second day of the seminar touched upon the important topic of preserving the interpreter’s mental health. It is no secret that an interpreter experiences great psychological stress, and the participants discussed effective techniques for stress management.

SCIT was represented by Deputy Director Angelique Antonova.
