The CBU Gifted Academy is designed to assist K-12 teachers in fulfilling employment requirements (as opposed to licensure requirements) for teaching gifted students.
If you are currently enrolled in a CBU graduate/post-baccalaureate program (MAT, MEd, or a Licensure-Only Program) you may take the academy courses as electives; however, you should contact the CBU Department of Education for permission to register for the course(s). To enroll, register as a "special graduate student."
- Two six-hour credit courses including “Characteristics of a Gifted/Talented Class” and “Methods for Teaching Gifted/Talented"
- Summer classes
- Hybrid format – both in-class and online meetings
NOTE: At this time CBU does not offer the 466 Gifted Education K-12 license. Some school districts have additional employment requirements, such as three years of successful teaching experience in the general education classroom, so teachers should check with their school districts prior to enrolling in the Gifted Academy.
For additional information, contact Professor Nancy Wilder at email@example.com or (901) 321-3385.
