In conjunction with the WCGTC Executive Committee, the Local Conference Committee has decided upon the following strands for the conference:

  1. Giftedness and Talent: Models, Research, and Practice
  2. Creativity: Research and Practice
  3. Identification: Models, Instruments, and Approaches
  4. Social and Emotional Needs
  5. Twice-Exceptional Learners
  6. Guidance and Counselling
  7. Diversity in Giftedness
  8. Parenting or Care Giving
  9. Schooling Alternatives for the Gifted and Talented
  10. Advocacy: National, State, Regional, and Local
  11. Leadership Development
  12. Programming, Curriculum, and Pedagogy

The EC and LCC believe these strands encompass many different topics and go well with the Global Perspectives in Gifted Education theme.
