As well as Distinguished Professor of Educational Psychology at the University of Connecticut, Joseph Renzulli is also Director of the National Research Center on the Gifted and Talented. His research has focused on strength-based assessment, the identification and development of creativity and giftedness in young people, and models for personalized learning.
A focus of his work has been on applying the pedagogy of gifted education to the improvement of learning for all students. His most recent work is a computer-based assessment of student strengths and a teacher-planning tool integrated with an Internet based search engine that matches highly challenging enrichment activities and resources to individual student profiles and teacher selected curricular topics. There will be an opportunity for a Q&A with Dr Renzulli following his presentation.
The event includes a free finger buffet lunch following the lecture, where delegates will also be able to network.
The lecture takes place at Westwood Lecture Theatre.
We expect this event to fill quickly so get your booking request in early.
