NILA IWLA Challenge

The purpose of the NILA / IWLA Professional Learning Challenge is to:

  • foster a community of NE / IA world language educators dedicated to implementing best practices

  • extend professional learning opportunities beyond the Fall Conferences

How it works:

This Canvas Course is designed to engage NE / IA WL Educators in a gamified environment. This means you will receive points for participating in various NILA/IWLA sponsored activities. Points will vary in accordance with the degree of difficulty, time required, significance. Points will accumulate over the course of the 2017-18 academic years. The top 3 individuals from each state who have accumulated the most points by September 1, 2018 will be awarded free registration to their respective 2018 state fall conference. The individual who accrues the most points by September 1, 2018 will be awarded a $100 stipend at the 2018 fall conference.
