Dr Colm O’Reilly and Dr Leeanne Hinch from CTY Ireland talked about EGift – a free online course for teachers and parents of gifted students.

E-Gift was an Erasmus+ funded project which aimed to provide appropriate educational opportunities for gifted students at a school level. To accomplish this, the project focused on developing a free Online Educational Resource for teachers and parents which introduces them to the field of gifted education’s key issues, approaches and challenges. In this talk Dr. Colm O’Reilly and Dr. Leeanne Hinch will speak about this project and the five key strands of this programme: Identification, Lived Experience, Social and Emotional Wellbeing, Teaching Strategies, and Programme Design Principles. Afterwards, participants will be able to access the platform and gain access to the free resources.
