Advance your practice with WIDA
The WIDA Symposium is a forum for innovation and reciprocal learning; you'll be able to share both your questions and your good ideas with colleagues from around the region.
Please note: The Symposium is an exclusive benefit to members of the WIDA International School Consortium. Participants must have previous training/experience with WIDA.
During the Symposium we will engage in three intentional learning loops:
- You will learn from other international schools
- You will learn about new tools/resources from WIDA
- WIDA will learn from your comments, feedback and questions

What Past Participants Say
"We like the WIDA framework because it gives us a strong specific way to measure student needs and progress. It provides both teacher tools and learning opportunities and we use it to measure the success of our program. With numerous other international schools also using the tool it provides a common ground of understanding for comparing programs and for recruiting teachers." – Deputy Head of School, Africa
