NMRID is proud to host an intensive 2 day EIPA workshop on Sept. 20 and 21! Seats are limited! Presenting this workshop is Kevin T. Williams, co-author of the EIPA. This is a highly active workshop, so please come ready to work and have fun!
Come ready to learn and grow. Come ready to stretch, laugh, and engage. Come ready to discuss the collective practice of educational interpreting and to look, anew, at the incredibly challenging and vital work in which we engage.
For more information including registration forms and flyer please see the workshop section of the website under the professional development tab.
