Global Conferences: July 2020

WIDA is working with global and regional organizations to continue to provide opportunities to reconnect with former colleagues, meet new friends and expand your personal learning network.

WIDA Annual Conference Update

Recently, WIDA made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person 2020 WIDA Annual Conference in response to the impact of COVID-19. While we explored several options to hold the conference virtually, we have ultimately decided not to move forward with a virtual WIDA Annual Conference due to the uncertainty around the upcoming school year.

Although we are disappointed that we will not be able to come together as planned this year, we are hopeful that we will be able to gather in person again at the 2021 WIDA Annual Conference planned for October 26-29, 2021 in Louisville, Kentucky. Stay tuned for more information from WIDA about the 2021 conference.
