The Content Committee announces the “Call for Proposals” for the WIDA 2013 National Conference. The conference will take place October 17-19, 2013 in Milwaukee. The Committee welcomes proposals from all educators, regardless of membership in the WIDA Consortium, who wish to share innovative educational practices with our audience.
The theme for the 2013 Conference is “Language Learner Success: Building on Strengths.” This directly ties into WIDA’s CAN DO philosophy, which emphasizes the assets, contributions, and potential of linguistically diverse students. While keeping this theme in mind, the Committee expects proposals to fall into one of four broad topic areas: academic language and literacy; effective instructional practices; program management, and; national initiatives.
Proposals will be considered for inclusion in the program if they are received by midnight CST on Friday, February 15, 2013.
WIDA stands for World-Class Instructional Design and Assessment, and it is housed within the Wisconsin Center for Education Research at the School of Education, University of Wisconsin-Madison.
