A clear message from the In your own words event was the need for a network/information hub for the ITS sector to link up and share relevant information, articles, concerns and events. The Interpreting JISCmail group provides an online secure forum for discussion, in which members can raise and respond to concerns and issues.
You can subscribe in the following ways:
- send an email with an empty header and the message SUBSCRIBE WOLSH in the body text (not header) to firstname.lastname@example.org
- go to www.jiscmail.ac.uk/wolsh and click on the subscribe buttons
- email Jan Cambridge
We would request that once you have joined the forum that you send an email to the group to introduce yourself. Please explain your connection to interpreting and commissioning interpreters, any concerns you may have or any information you have to share. As the list grows, it will serve as an important information hub.
Whilst the In your own words event and the consequent “next steps” are focusing on the health sector, it is expected that the Interpreting JISCmail forum will incorporate other sectors too. It needs to start in order to grow, so please do sign up as soon as possible.
