The Directorate for Learning and Assessment Programmes recently organized a training seminar entitled Is this Child Gifted?
The 120 seminar participants were actively engaged in the discussion led by Dr Lianne Hoogeveen. Dr Lianne from Radboud University (Netherlands) is highly accomplished in the field. She is the Head of the Centre for the Study of Giftedness (CBO) and member of the Executive Committee of the European Council for High Ability (ECHA). Indeed Dr Lianne managed to integrate scientific research to professional practice by outlining the different profiles of gifted learners, a range of gifted education models and the roles of teachers, peers and parents in the process.
The seminar was partly funded through Scientix 3 (H2020) European funds.
The seminar has been reviewed by the European Schoolnet on the Scientix Blog at http://blogs.eun.org/scientix/2017/07/is-this-child-gifted/
