May 23-25, 2012
Mount Saint Vincent University, Halifax, Nova Scotia.
The Department of Education, The Nova Scotia Educational Leadership Consortium and the Nova Scotia Teachers Union are pleased to announce an exciting professional learning event for all educators. The Nova Scotia Summit on Gifted Education and Talent Development will be more than a conference. It will be an opportunity for participants to actively engage in learning how to create and sustain a culture of enrichment in our schools by exploring challenging programs and examining a wide variety of innovative ideas and practices.
Special focus will be on The Schoolwide Enrichment Model and its many components as recommended in the new provincial guide: Gifted Education and Talent Development. The extensive Summit program will feature highly respected internationally known keynote speakers, large group sessions and small group breakout workshops that will be repeated each day so delegates can “do everything.” During the 3-day Summit, participants will also enjoy browsing the publisher and vendor displays, being entertained by gifted and talented students, gathering informally for professional discussion, and interacting with the workshop presenters and keynote speakers. The comprehensive program promises to keep participants engaged from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm.
Please mark your calendar and join our creative community in May 2012 for the first-ever Summit on Gifted Education and Talent Development in the Maritimes. The Summit fee is $399.00 (plus HST), but is not required when you register. However, it is important that you register on-line immediately to insure that your seat is reserved at this exciting professional learning event.
