Wisconsin TESOL 2020 Sponsor Terms of Agreement

Aims of Wisconsin TESOL (WITESOL)

WITESOL is the professional organization for Wisconsin Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages. As an affiliate of TESOL International Association and an associate of IATEFL, it represents and provides professional development and other opportunities to educators of English Language Learners and bilingual students of all levels and ages around the State of Wisconsin.

  1. General Principles

WITESOL aims to provide diverse marketing opportunities for sponsors to connect with educators and educational administrators within the State of Wisconsin. WITESOL understands that sponsors have a limited marketing budget to invest in such connections and so provides options to suit different budgets.

Our fall conference will be held online this year on Saturday, November 7, 2020. We will be using Google Sites platform and Zoom technology.

We’re truly excited to welcome Jayme Adelson Goldstein, author and ESL teacher trainer and consultant, as our keynote speaker, who will be presenting live in the morning. We will also feature Dr. Tim Boals, Co-founder and Executive Director of WIDA, as our live closing plenary speaker in the afternoon. Members will be able to create their own schedule during the day by attending pre-recorded sessions and participating in live breakout rooms for participants to network and discuss the sessions they’ve attended.
