Indo-US Workshop on Gifted Child

Principal Investigators:

Joseph S Renzulli, Univ of Connecticut, CT

Krishna Maitra, Univ of Delhi, Delhi

Dates & Venue: 27-29 January 2010, New Delhi

Gifted children have innate capabilities that set them apart from other children. A great deal is happening across the world in the field of gifted education. Advancement in education and psychology has brought empirical and scientific credibility to the field of gifted education. The United States being the pioneer country in the development of gifted and talented education (GATE) has created various federal and state laws and regulations to make policies on educating the gifted and talented in all the states of the U.S. Although In India, there are various agencies/departments working in talent search programs in different subjects, there is a need for collaborative and sustained research based practices. With this in mind, an Indo-US Round table discussion on Identification of Giftedness with special focus on science and mathematics was organized by Prof. Krishna Maitra (University of Delhi), Dr. Jyoti Sharma (University of Delhi) and Prof. J.S. Renzulli (University of Connecticut). The discussions lead to empirical and descriptive understanding of issues concerning gifted education particularly in science and mathematics, and provided a platform for exchange of ideas and sustained collaboration in this area of research. The discussion focused on early identification of highly gifted children and planning the appropriate mentoring program for them. Distinguished speakers from the US and India summarized the current status of practices as well as possibilities for future deliberations.
