    Do you always have graduate credits available for the conference in Agen? I am interested in attending for the 2019 summer and I’ll need graduate credits for my teaching license.

    Thank you.

    Hello, Taryn. We had an arrangement with Pacific University in Portland, Oregon at the time this article was written, but the person who was responsible for the program has moved on. I am trying to find another university to work with, but it takes time. I hope to have something in place for 2019..

    Bonjour! I had the same question about graduate credits and am wondering if you have any updates, as I am very interested in attending. Also, I am wondering what the language of the course is, and whether French language refresher opportunities were available before or after the workshop. Merci.

    Yes, it is possible to obtain graduate credits through the Pacific University as before. This is the same university that works with NTPRS and Scott Benedict. Contact me for more details. Since we are very international, all the presentations are in English as the shared common language when people come from over 30 different countries. The French language course run by Sabrina is the week following the conference. More information about her course is posted on this website.
