  • Hale School 160 Hale Road Wembley Downs, WA, 6019 Australia (map)

A three day course.

Wednesday 20 March, Tuesday 21 May & Thursday 8 August 2019.

This course is appropriate for primary and secondary teachers, coordinators and school leaders who want a comprehensive understanding of gifted and talented education. This course includes all aspects of the entry-level Gifted and Talented Professional Learning Modules (developed by GERRIC with DEEWR) as well as up-to-date research, strategies and time for practical planning. A separate one-day specialist course is available for staff who have completed this three-day course and for staff who have an expert-level understanding of gifted and talented education.

What to expect.

Day One — March 20, 2019

We’ll explore questions like, what do we mean by “gifted and talented”? What are the characteristics of these students? How do we identify gifted and talented students? How do we track the growth of these students to ensure we are making an impact on their learning journey?

Day Two — May 21, 2019

Social and emotional characteristics and needs of gifted and talented students. We’ll also cover underachievement and strategies to identify and manage this.

Day Three — August 8, 2019

A look at designing challenging learning experiences for gifted and talented students, including questioning, differentiation, high order thinking, and assessment (pre, formative and off-level). Designing program options for gifted and talented students, including grouping, acceleration options, and compacting, mentoring and alternative options.
