Find WIDA across the country and around the world

In addition to hosting the WIDA Annual Conference, WIDA staff participate in many other regional, national and international conferences throughout the year.

WIDA representation at in-person national conferences is currently on hold until further instructions on travel are announced by the University of Wisconsin - Madison. Updated in-person conference exhibit and participation information will be posted when available.

WIDA @ National Conferences

As keynote speakers, presenters, exhibit booth staff, or attendees, WIDA staff attend conferences to connect with educators. We do so to share research, best practices, and other insights, and especially to answer your questions and listen to feedback.
