Program Description

Participants will learn about common behaviours and profiles associated with gifted learners. Many common misunderstandings about gifted learners will be investigated. Best practice principles for school leaders to establish optimal conditions for gifted students to thrive will be explored. Methods of identification and use of student data will be examined and linked to the creation of effective learning plans. High-leverage teaching strategies linked to the Australian Curriculum and DECYP Procedures will illustrate how exciting possibilities can be created to engage and challenge gifted learners. Demonstration of Gifted Online courses will be available. There will also be time to implement knowledge acquired during the day to design learning plans and inspire learning opportunities for students. An awareness of possible community resources and networks will be established with ongoing access to research and professional learning materials.
