Customized Professional Learning

When workshops or webinars deviate from the standard objectives & agendas these will be considered customized.  WIDA can customize learning experiences for participants at the request of a site host.  All customized requests must be within the scope of WIDA work and will be planned with the input of the site host. Cost will be determined based on the scope of the request.

(All requests are dependent upon facilitator availability and approval by WIDA)
