This topic provides an overview of critical contemporary issues in the field of Gifted Education, including the varied and sometimes competing notions of intelligence, giftedness and creativity, the role of assessment and provision in the development of giftedness and the impact of environment on the individual's experience of giftedness. These will be examined in both an historical context and in the light of current research and theory. Whilst each issue will be explored in depth, the focus will be on the interconnections between conceptions, identification and provision. Students will reflect upon, challenge and refine their own beliefs about the nature and education of gifted students.
