Event description

Description

Gifted? Talented? Highly able? High-potential learners? Why do we even need a label?”

The Gifted and Talented Childrens Association of South Australia in conjunction with Catholic Education South Australia present a session for educators, parents and carers interested in better engaging with high performance students. The session will be followed by tea and coffee with an opportunity to network.

The Topic

Students who are capable of learning at a greater pace, depth and complexity than their same-age peers are often excluded from conversations about inclusive practices in educational contexts. This session will explain the terminology and the importance of understanding, valuing and providing for these students. Inclusive practice is a way for all students to feel a sense of belonging and community in the classroom, in order for them to learn and grow. Importantly, how can we ensure that inclusive practices stretch to include the gifted and talented students?

The Presenter - Mrs Lesley Henderson

Lesley is a Lecturer in Education at Flinders University, where she coordinates the Gifted Education specialisation. She is the president of the Australian Association for the Education of the Gifted and Talented (AAEGT), and a past president of GTCASA. Lesley has presented at local, national and international conferences and will complete her doctorate this year on leadership for professional learning about gifted education.
