(RI) 2019 WIDA Annual Conference

October 15 - October 18

The WIDA Annual Conference is the largest conference dedicated to educators of PreK-12 English language learners. Educators from around the country submit session proposals, which are reviewed and selected by a panel of internal and external reviewers. Sessions examine research-based strategies and instructional practices on topics that align to the conference theme and are designed and delivered in an engaging format. Topic areas include:

  • Effective instructional practices
  • Language assessment
  • Leadership
  • Second language development
  • Bilingual education
  • Family engagement

Launched in 2013, the WIDA Annual Conference has continued to grow in popularity as it has traveled around the country – from Milwaukee, Atlanta, Las Vegas, Philadelphia, Tampa, Detroit and this year to Providence, Rhode Island.

In its first year, the conference drew 600 participants with a sizable waiting list. Now, we are preparing for 2,000 attendees each year.
