  • Understanding the language of giftedness and talent
  • Incorporating Gagne's Differentiated Model of Giftedness and Talent into their practice
  • The identification of Gifted students, including those who may be underperforming, and some possible identification tools
  • Giftedness from a cultural perspective

The session will give opportunities for discussion, the sharing of best practice examples and the unpacking of case studies to support the theory.
