This unique program will allow UCF teacher candidates to learn from key experts in Europe in Gifted Education and gain field experiences in teaching high-ability, gifted and talented students.

This program will offer an introduction to Gifted Education, core knowledge of the field and also insight into comparative and international education for high-ability, gifted and talented students. Students will register for the course: EDG 4954: International Education Field Experience (Meeting the Needs of High-Ability, Gifted and Talented Students in the Netherlands).  The international portion of this program is tentatively scheduled for September 1 - November 21, 2016.
