Closing The Achievement Gap in Gifted Education

2021. március 3.

The Association of Hungarian Talent Support Organisations (Matehetsz) together with the University of Debrecen, Hungary organises the 2nd Thematic ECHA Conference online in March 2021 titled „Closing The Achievement Gap in Gifted Education”

The conference focuses on school achievement gaps between student groups, a complex social, biological, pedagogical and psychological issue that needs to be discussed internationally more than ever in the current pandemic period. Another topical issue to be addressed is the need for the more marked presence of the concepts of equity, equal opportunities, diversity and inclusiveness in talent support. The world-renowned lecturers of the Conference Week will discuss these issues from various perspectives.

We would listen to leading researchers:
• Márta Fülöp (Hungarian Academy of Sciences):Being competitively gifted; disadvantaged gifted need it the most
• Frank C. Worrell (Berkeley, CA): Diversifying Gifted and Talented Education: An Uphill Battle for Our Field
• Paula Olszewski-Kubilius (Northwestern University): Research-Based Models and Practices for Serving Low Income Gifted Students
• Jonathan Plucker (Johns Hopkins University): Excellence Gaps 12 Years Late: What We Know About Causes and Solutions
• Tibor Péter Nagy (Hungarian Academy of Sciences): Routes to Elite

Several invited speakers from all over the world (from India, Izrael, Ethiopia, Greece, Hungary, Kenya, Peru, Taiwan etc.) will have presentations.

Participation at the 2nd ECHA Thematic Conference will be free of charge, but preliminary registration is required.
