Host a WIDA Professional Learning Event in 2019-20

Would your school like to host an open enrollment WIDA Institute, Symposium or Workshop in the next school year? We are currently inviting member schools to apply.

We are seeking host sites for 2019-2020:

  • WIDA Institutes: four-day introduction to WIDA.
  • WIDA Symposia: two-day reciprocal learning focus on school-wide systems.
  • WIDA Workshops: two-day deep dive into a single topic.

Hosting WIDA professional learning is an opportunity for you to showcase your school while providing leadership within the international school community. Host schools also see financial benefits; your participants pay no flight or hotel fees and there is a discount for host school participants. In addition, WIDA reimburses host schools for all food and beverage costs. If you would like your school to be considered, please complete this brief application form or contact Jenny Hill-Wild at with any questions.
