22 Impactful service: Authentic professorship in the gifted education community

“Impactful Service: Authentic Professorship,” illustrates how college professors serve the gifted community and impact the academic goals of students in Kindergarten through high school. How can college professors with experience and academic preparation in education utilise academic skills and expertise to impact the daily lives of the gifted community in a positive way? This presentation will describe the activities of “Authentic Professorship” that addresses the needs of the gifted community beyond the university, thereby creating “Impactful Service” while maintaining the professorial roles of Teaching, Research, and Service as defined by the university.
