The University of Tasmania is currently accepting registrations for the short course Understanding Gifted Learners: Busting the Myths.  The course runs for 23 hours over six weeks, beginning on 2 November, for a cost of $75.

About this course

Across Australia, gifted people make up approximately 10% of our population – whether it be within your own family, a school, university, the workplace, or elsewhere in the community. You may not even realise they’re there! This fully online 6-week short course will broaden your understanding of what it means to be gifted and help shape the way you interact with the gifted learners who may be in your world. You will explore the unique characteristics, and other highly relevant aspects of gifted learners, and discover why there is not ‘one size fits all’ as you debunk some of the most common related myths and misconceptions.

This course is for anyone who would like to improve their knowledge and understanding of gifted learners and is particularly suitable for parents, teachers, and those who work with and/or support gifted learners.

Six weeks of content: online, self-paced, no assessment, accredited against the National Teacher Standards (accredited by NESA), and only $75. Suitable for anyone with an interest in gifted education (parents/family members, gifted learners themselves, other education professionals, psychologists etc). The course is delivered by Dr Amanda J. Harper from the University of Tasmania, who holds a PhD in Gifted Education.
