Global Principles for Professional Learning in Gifted Education
On August 2, 2021, the WCGTC® released a new document titled Global Principles for Professional Learning in Gifted Education. This document is intended as a tool to create positive change on behalf of gifted students locally, regionally, and globally. The principles can serve to urge educational leaders and policymakers to invest in professional learning to benefit gifted education. Policymakers should adopt policies that mandate the inclusion of gifted education in teacher education programs at national, regional, and local levels. (Note: Based upon feedback, the summary of Principle 5 was updated on the poster and document to include socio-economic statuses, matching with the existing description in the document. The updated documents were posted on November 1, 2021.)
The document will be reviewed in 2024 – 2025 to make any necessary updates.
The Executive Committee is working on a process for translating the document into other languages. As more information becomes available, it will be posted on the WCGTC website.
