Presentation on Gifted Talent Development

Speaker — Ann Batenburg, PhD

Associate Clinical Professor of Gifted Education at SMU

Lovejoy High School Lecture Hall

The Talent Development Perspective is a new way of looking at giftedness based on the latest research and thinking in the field of Gifted Education. Talent Development sees giftedness as centered in a specific field, developed over time, and dependent upon non-cognitive skills, like interest, perseverance, and beliefs. This presentation will outline the main ideas of the Talent Development perspective, and then leave time for discussion with participants about what this new idea could mean for Gifted Education as a whole.
