This three-session interactive series is designed to guide gifted coordinators in building and supporting their school/districts' gifted programs. Through videos and workshops, participants will take a deeper dive into these three topics:
Identification Procedures – Explore gifted identification tools, testing procedures, and research behind various identification approaches. Local norms and other practices for increasing diversity and equity will be discussed.
Gifted Program Development – Dig deeply into program design and programming options that create, support, and develop the learning environment and opportunities for advanced learners.
Professional Learning – Professional learning is the catalyst for gifted program growth and refinement. Examine the strategies, tools, and structures that ignite learning for gifted and talented students.
Participants will be provided access to three videos to watch before each session. During the session, experienced gifted coordinators will lead a discussion to further explore the issues and opportunities presented in the videos. Attendees will also spend time in smaller groups.
