3.3.7 The state of gifted education in Australia: A SWOT analysis

This presentation will commence with an overview of the current state of gifted education in Australia, as informed by a review of the Australian research in gifted education, along with gifted education policies and practices noted in non-research outlets. Thereafter, the findings of a SWOT analysis (i.e., a tool commonly used in the field of corporate management to evaluate the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats of businesses and industries; Helms & Nixon, 2010) on the field of gifted education in Australia, will be reported. Implications for Australia and other countries and recommendations for future research and practice will be discussed.
