Event description

Description

Presenter: Dr Rosalind Walsh
Dates: 14 September 2017
Times: 9am-4pm

Young intellectually gifted children (early Stage 1 and Stage 1) differ from their age peers in terms of their cognitive and socio-affective development. Identifying gifted children as they enter school can be difficult and responding to their educational needs in a mixed ability classroom is often challenging. Finding a balance between the socio-affective needs of young children and their need for intellectual stimulation requires careful planning by teachers.

In this course you will explore:

  • Using standardised tests and checklists to identify young gifted children
  • Evidence-based classroom practices that are appropriate for use in the K-2 classroom
  • Exemplary curriculum materials for gifted children in K-2
  • Aspects of subject and full grade acceleration relevant to K-2 children

Want to learn more about gifted education? UNSW School of Education is hosting the 22nd Biennial World Conference: Global Perspectives in Gifted Education on 20-23 July 2017. Join us to be part of the global conversation in gifted education!

Rosalind holds an MEd from the University of New South Wales specialising in gifted education. She was the manager of the Gifted Education Research, Resource and Information Centre (GERRIC) at UNSW for 10 years. Rosalind has worked with teachers around Australia at primary and secondary levels, as well as teaching in UNSW and Macquarie University’s preservice teacher training in gifted education for over 10 years. Rosalind has a PhD from Macquarie University in successful interventions for gifted children in prior to school settings.
