The Certificate in Gifted Education and Talent Development is designed to develop advanced certification for teachers who can positively impact student learning in their classrooms and schools with all children and adolescents, including those who are gifted and talented. Courses and experiences include professional learning communities in which students interact with other graduate students from various content areas and grade levels to discuss and work on real-world challenges and promising practices they encounter in schools. Candidates who complete the Teacher Certification including a three-hour practicum and receive a passing score on Praxis II in Gifted Education will be eligible for a recommendation for the State of Kentucky Gifted and Talented Education (KE37) endorsement.
In addition to advanced certification, the Certificate may also be completed by individuals in a variety of careers such as counselors, psychologists, international students, and others who are not certified teachers.
