These courses are designed primarily to prepare educators for professional work and leadership in gifted education. An understanding of giftedness, and the range of educational programs and services that provide an appropriate response to student diversity, will benefit all educators and professionals who work with gifted students.
The Masters course articulates with further study in Gifted Education through research in the Doctor of Education and Doctor of Philosophy degrees offered at Flinders University. Individual Gifted Education topics may also be selected for elective study by other Master of Education students.
All topics may be studied online in distance mode, or as internal intensives during school holidays in alternating years.
Lecturers bring to the topics a range of perspectives from their diverse backgrounds in teaching, philosophy, educational psychology and research, and imbue each topic with passion and extensive knowledge of the field.
Postgraduate programs in Gifted Education at Flinders attract participants from South Australia, interstate and overseas. Our courses are dynamic and are regularly revised and updated in the light of current research, new publications and contemporary practices.
Note: These qualifications do not qualify graduates for Teacher registration.
