2.3.7 Narrative inquiry into practitioners' perspectives of gifted education in South Australia

This presentation will report about doctoral research conducted using narrative inquiry to explore and interpret the experiences of three practitioners who have been instrumental to the development of gifted education in South Australia. The results are significant in the telling of the practitioners’ stories, and in the construction of an interpretation of the past and a vision for the future of gifted education in South Australia. The stories will be presented as ‘thinking-tools’ (Moen, 2006) to provoke the audience to reflect on and engage in professional learning and practices that specifically focus on improved outcomes for gifted and talented students.
