Introductory Gifted Education Institutes
Join Us at Otterbein University this summer!
This Institute meets at least the 15 hours** of professional development in gifted education outlined by Ohio's Operating Standards for identifying and serving students who are gifted. (November 2016) The Institute also coincides with Otterbein's "Martin Essex" program for teens who are gifted, giving teachers a unique opportunity to observe gifted education in action, to learn strategies for teaching gifted students, and apply new knowledge.
**Note: If the state maintains the 30 hours of required professional development, the institute will run June 18 - 22, 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. We recommend blocking the whole week until the state has finalized the law.
The Institute is organized in four modules - identification of gifted students, characteristics of gifted students, higher-level thinking and complexity, and curriculum design for gifted education. All activities and topics are aligned to the Ohio Association for Gifted Children's (OAGC) position statement, What is Gifted High Quality Professional Development?
