WIDA is excited to announce the eSummit, a free virtual learning opportunity for educators in domestic WIDA Consortium member states, territories and federal agencies. The event will be held October 12-30, 2020.

Each week of the eSummit will have a theme with multiple webinars relating to the weekly topic. The first week’s focus will be on the 2020 Standards, with a session that introduces the WIDA ELD Standards, 2020 Edition as well as a session about the updated Key Language Uses. The theme of the second week will be Teaching Multilingual Learners and will include a panel discussion with the WIDA Fellows exploring responses to COVID-19, as well as sessions focused on the intentional planning and implementation of instructional practices that support language development and content learning. The final week will feature WIDA Assessments and include webinars about the WIDA Assessment system, WIDA Screener for Kindergarten and WIDA MODEL.

Members of WIDA Consortium states will be able to access the live virtual sessions through the eLearning Center in the WIDA Secure Portal. Webinar recordings and downloadable resources will be available after the event. Additional information about the WIDA eSummit is available on the WIDA eSummit page and the eSummit flyer.
