Local educators and parents will have a unique opportunity this summer to learn from the world’s leading experts in gifted education, and they won’t have to drive across the country or fly around the globe to do it.
The World Council for Gifted and Talented Children will host its 20th Biennial World Conference, “Celebrating Giftedness and Creativity,” Aug. 10-14 at the Galt House Hotel and Conference Center in Louisville.
Cities such as Barcelona, Spain; Sydney, Australia; Istanbul, Turkey; and most recently, Prague, Czech Republic, have hosted the conference. The United States has not held it since 2005 when New Orleans hosted.
The proximity of this year’s event provides a rare occasion for area educators and parents, said Dr. Julia Roberts, World Council treasurer and executive director of The Center for Gifted Studies and Carol Martin Gatton Academy of Mathematics and Science in Kentucky, both at WKU.
“Holding the 20th Biennial World Conference of the World Council for Gifted and Talented Children in Louisville provides a remarkable opportunity to learn with scholars and practitioners from around the globe,” she said. “I hope many Kentucky educators, parents and interested citizens will come to this conference and join in the conversations about children and youth who are gifted and talented.”
