Description of the Workshop

Join us in Quito for this interactive, four-day introduction to the WIDA English Language Development standards framework and assessments. This WIDA Institute will help schools build capacity for a systemic approach to serving multilingual learners using WIDA resources.


Participants in this institute will engage with components of the WIDA Standards and Assessment system and explore how it can be implemented in their context. During the institute, participants will use the WIDA standards framework to analyze the academic language demands of content standards at their school and create an instructional and assessment plan based on the needs of their students. Participants will also have opportunities to develop context-specific implementation plans for communication and collaboration with staff members. Institute participants will also benefit from networking opportunities with international educators both in person and through an online community forum.

Target Group

Any teacher or administrator interested in WIDA. Schools are encouraged to send teams of educators to build capacity for implementation.
