Giftedness is more than IQ. Physical, musical, social and creative abilities are involved. In this course, you will study how personal characteristics - like motivation and performance anxiety - , abilities, and surroundings influence each other.
- We will discuss at the Radboud University how to identify the needs of a gifted student. Gut feelings will be compared with research results. You are asked to be critical, discussing difficult situations like 'how do we encourage talent without being elitists?', 'do we want people to excel?'. You will be critical of both the way you work, and your own talents and talent development. You will investigate the conflict between stimulating talent and being fearful of doing so. Do we want people to excel? Do we dare excel ourselves?
- Practical strategies will be explored and developed during the Excellence beyond Borders - Breaking down Barriers in Gifted Education course. We will focus on learning and the learner thus moving us beyond issues of identification allowing teachers the opportunity to think about provision and support.
After this course you are able to:
- Consider information about giftedness and talent critically,
- Translate knowledge and abilities concerning identification, education and counselling of the gifted and talented to a scientifically based own assessment,
- Recognize and (re)act to (psycho)social and biological factors that can influence the education of the gifted and talented,
- Encourage expertise of colleagues in gifted education and care
