NOTE: We hope to hold our annual conference in person at the Naperville Marriott in Naperville, Illinois. However, we are monitoring the Covid-19 situation and will change to a virtual/hybrid conference if needed. (We expect to make this decision in spring/summer.)
This Year's Theme:
TOGETHER WE LIFT ADVANCED LEARNERS!
Teachers, Administrators, Counselors, School Social Workers, Instructional Coaches...
Do you have a particular area of interest or expertise related to your work with advanced learners? Consider sharing it with others by submitting a proposal to present at the IAGC 2021 Conference.
We are looking for ideas with respect to the following areas:
All sessions should reflect evidence-based practices and address equity and inclusion. Topics related to our theme - "Together We Lift Advanced Learners" are especially welcome, including ideas to support collaborations among teachers, administrators, parents, social workers/school psychologists, and educational specialists to support the academic and social-emotional needs of advanced learners.
Topics should align with the IAGC mission and priorities:
The Illinois Association for Gifted Children empowers educators, families and communities by advancing effective practices, programs and policies to promote the development of gifted and talented children throughout Illinois.
