Illinois Association for Gifted Children "PD on the Patio" series 

Session 4: The Talent Development Approach to Gifted Education

This session is the fourth of the series of virtual "PD on the Patio" series focusing on important topics related to meeting the needs of advanced learners. 

How can teachers help all the advanced learners in their classrooms maximize their potential? This session provides an overview of the Talent Development Approach to gifted education, which emphasizes developing potential and a continuum of services for maximizing each child's potential. Strategies for identifying talent in students from culturally, linguistically, and/or economically diverse backgrounds will be explored.

This session will be facilitated by IAGC Past-President Dr. Paula Olszewski-Kubilius, Director of the Center for Talent Development and professor in the School of Education and Social Policy at Northwestern University. Over the past 32 years, she has created programs for diverse groups of gifted learners and written extensively on issues of talent development, particularly on programming for under-represented gifted students and outside-of-school and accelerative models of gifted education.

Professional Development Hour: Participants who attend sessions and complete the required sign in, sign out, and evaluation sheets are eligible to receive 1 PD Hour Credit.

Bundle Rate Available: Participants may register for one or more sessions in this 6-session series. While spaces last in all sessions, a special "bundle rate" is available for those who register for all 6 sessions. For information about the "bundle" rate, email director@iagcgifted.org. In the event of insufficient registrations, class may be cancelled with a refund to registrants for the cost of the session.
