Title: Constructing Ethics 2.5 hours (150 Min)
Presenter: Pam Gwin Coder
Working with reporters to identify tricky ethical situations in various settings we encounter every day in the workplace and how to effectively handle said situations immediately, effectively, professionally, humorously, and ethically for the benefit of the reporter as well as the clients.
Special format: Group participation and discussion, individual and group.
Specific topics and design:
Ethical situations will be given along with the role of the various people involved in those situations, i.e., reporter, videographer, attorneys, interpreter, corporate reps, et al. We will discuss our role as reporters with each of these individuals in the freelance, official, CART, and captioning settings. Attendees will be placed in groups and given assignments for each group along with a plethora of situations that occur to reporters on a daily basis. Each group will act out those different scenarios. Then the group of attendees as a whole will discuss how each group handled the situations they were given and what he/she would have done differently if anything. We will discuss HIPAA, last minute requests, realtime, rough drafts, working with interpreters/videographers, et cetera.
