17 Design-based research practices for the implementation of gifted education provisions in Australian schools

Australian education does not have a strong focus on gifted education. There are few token policies, and little is mandated. This poster will demonstrate the research process of a South Australian teacher, aiming to implement a Gifted Education program in their school context. This project was started to ensure that the school context, needs, and community are catered to effectively in the planning for a gifted program. This project will demonstrate the design-based research methodology used to discover the needs of the students in their community, the research gathered from this process, and "where to next."
