Home /  Courses And Programs / Teaching the Gifted and Talented: Recognizing Individual Differences

Familiarity with clusters of characteristics common to gifted people provides a basis for recognizing and understanding the individual differences and varied profiles that gifted students may exhibit. A historical perspective on the changing views of intelligence and case studies of gifted students provide the context in which to explore their intellectual, social-emotional and creative development. The aim of this course is to help participants understand the implications of all of these factors in order to assess, program, teach and parent the gifted.

Bob Presby was fantastic! He had a lot of knowledge on the gifted and offered great insight on each assignment.

Student Response

I liked the meaningful feedback that Mr. Presby (Bob) gave me. I can tell that teaching educators, how to teach gifted and talented students, matters to him. It is more than a job to him.

Student Response

Bob has been a great instructor. He grades quickly, answers questions promptly, and has been a great resource. I would definitely take another class with him.

Student Response

It's the perfect amount of work to be challenging, but not overwhelming for someone, like myself, who is teaching full-time while taking the class.

Student Response

I really appreciate that I could tell this instructor truly cares as he actually gave individual constructive feedback that showed he was actually making the effort to read our posts.
