Power Partnerships: Preparing Highly Qualified Teachers of the Gifted. November 1, 2013
Invited Lectures ; Stephens, K.R., Wilkins, P. & Griffith, A. ; Universities and school systems prove to be collaborative partners in providing gifted licensure programs for teachers. With the advent of new technologies, it is no longer essential for such partners to reside within the same region. This session will detail an innovative licensure program that combines traditional face-to-face instruction, synchronous virtual class meetings, and asynchronous course modules to deliver program content. In addition, a capstone experience, consisting of clinical practice in a district-run enrichment camp, helps provides a sustainable professional development program for teachers in districts with limited financial resources.
