The WIDA Annual Conference is the premier event for educators of early childhood-Grade 12 multilingual learners, bringing together educators from around the globe to network, share best practices, and discover innovative classroom strategies. We invite you to share your expertise with other educators as a presenter at the 2020 WIDA Annual Conference by submitting a proposal before the deadline of January 19.

In November Fatima Rivera attended the AISA Conference in South Africa, read what she had to say about the experience,
The AISA conference was my first International conference. It was a great way to personally connect to some of the schools WIDA works with around the globe. I enjoyed the chance to meet with wonderful educators who are interested in supporting multilingual learners. Also, I had the opportunity to learn more about how schools are currently supporting students as they learn English. While learning from teachers, I also value the time sharing WIDA’s research and the benefits of integrating those findings into schools. Overall, the teachers, administrators and conference staff were very welcoming and I am thrilled to have visited this conference and engaged with the AISA community.
