Connect with WIDA, connect with others

Conferences provide a valuable space for WIDA to connect with educators across the country and around the world. We learn from practitioners and share the latest news, research and resources from WIDA.  

WIDA is proud to support conferences with keynote speakers, session and workshop presenters, sponsorships, and exhibit booths. 

When you meet WIDA staff at conferences, you can expect them to be knowledgeable, responsive and friendly – and excited to connect with you.
