The Berta Seminar

Dr. Sylvia Rimm
October 24 & 25, 2019
The social and emotional development of children who are gifted and talented is just as important as their cognitive development, but oftentimes the parents and educators of gifted children lack the resources to address the issues these young people face. This seminar is open to teachers, parents, and school administrators and is offered at no cost to participants. EILA Credit is available. To learn more, please vist our Berta Seminar page

Differentiation Workshop

Dr. Julia Roberts & Dr. Tracy Inman
November 13, 2019
Educators know the importance of matching the learning to the student, but not all understand how to make that happen in their classrooms or schools. Others do understand and already apply differentiated instruction, but they are ready for the next level. Presenters Julia Roberts and Tracy Inman specialize in differentiating to meet the needs of all students, including those with gifts and talents.

Where Gifted Learners Discover Their Potential

Kids Learning

Located on the Western Kentucky University campus in Bowling Green, Kentucky, The Center for Gifted Studies has been serving children who are gifted and talented, their educators, and their parents for more than thirty-five years. The Center provides exciting educational opportunities for gifted young people, rigorous professional development for teachers, and support for parents of gifted young people. Under the direction of Dr. Julia Roberts, The Center has become one of the preeminent advocates for gifted education in the United States.

The Center believes that when gifted young people meet their extraordinary potential, our communities, our state, our nation—even our world—become better places. That is why each school year, The Center renews its commitment to encouraging excellence by providing quality programming and resources for gifted students, their teachers, and their parents.
