WIDA ACCESS for ELLs Webinar Series

Beginning in late September, WIDA and DRC will offer a series of free supplemental webinars covering a range of topics relevant to District Test Coordinators, Technology Coordinators, and Test Administrators.  These webinars will provide information on specific pre-test and during-test activities and will include ample time for questions and discussions.  Each webinar will be task- or topic-specific and relevant to a particular role. The webinars are designed to provide supplemental information in addition to (not a replacement for) Colorado’s ACCESS for ELLs training sessions held annually in October. Attendees can access the webinars via the Join Now hotlinks embedded in the updated webinar calendar (see below) or via  WIDA does not recommend attempting to register for any webinar ahead of time.  Instead, it is recommended that participants join the webinar 10-15 minutes prior to the start time to secure a seat in the WebEx meeting.
