Gifted and Talented Education

This license certifies highly qualified teachers and/or administrators to work with high-ability students, K-12. Candidates admitted to the licensure program are provided opportunities to increase their expertise in the characteristics, identification, programming, and service options for high-ability students. Course information is tied directly to the Indiana definition and mandate regarding the identification and service of high-ability students. While this program of study is appropriate for all educators, it is essential for those educators who desire to work with this exceptional population of students. The high-ability license can be earned in two ways: The sequence of courses is offered in a hybrid format with half of the course meetings taking place face-to-face and half online. The sequence is also available in a completely Web-based format as well.
