Through the Gifted Education Seminar, teachers learn to create an environment to identify gifted and talented learners, address diverse needs, and explore more effective ways to differentiate instruction. It is designed to provide all teachers a solid foundation in gifted education as well as an exceptional launching point for further studies. This computer-based training has been carefully constructed to create a unique experience with many interactive learning activities as well as authentic audio and video resources from gifted experts, including Bertie Kingore, Carolyn Coil, Jim Delisle, Frances Karnes, and Kristen Stephens. Participants can complete the training in professional development settings, study groups, or individually.

The focus is on major concepts in gifted education, concrete practice, explicit connections to the classroom, and development of action plans.
