Gifted education courses for professional educators
Professional educators have the opportunity to influence and improve the lives of their students. To have the greatest impact, however, teachers must be equipped to deal with the various abilities of students in their classroom, including the unique needs of gifted and talented learners.
Gifted and talented learners require educators who understand their academic, social and emotional development. You can gain important insight into identifying and supporting the diverse needs of exceptional students with our gifted education courses.
Our courses are designed to help professional educators develop key skills for their classroom. These courses examine critical topics such as how to identify the characteristics of gifted and talented learners, the various types of learning models for gifted and talented learners and evaluation and assessment tools.
Our courses cover crucial topics for gifted and talented educators, including:
- How to enhance critical thinking skills in gifted and talented learners.
- An overview of special populations in the gifted and talented population.
- How to support, guide and assist exceptional learners.
- The relationship among giftedness, talent, and creativity.
Additionally, our courses can help you learn how to interpret assessment results to develop an individual plan for exceptional students. These courses might also help you meet certain criteria for potential recertification, endorsements and professional development.
Take an individual course for your own personal growth or as a part of one of our degree plans. If you plan on transferring credits earned with us to an outside educational institution, it’s important that you check with them first to determine if credits are transferrable.
Our goal is to help professional educators continue their education with courses that fit into their busy schedules. You can pursue gifted education online, with courses you can take from the convenience of your home. Call 866.484.1815 or request additional information to learn more about course options.
