Professional learning for educators can take various forms, including preservice university education, conferences hosted by professional associations, in-service workshops, etc. However, many educators are not provided opportunities to learn how to specifically serve their gifted students. To better understand how professional learning can occur to benefit gifted students, the World Council for Gifted and Talented Children appointed a committee of more than 20 members around the world to develop ten overarching principles that can be used across various contexts and cultures. This presentation will share the history of the committee’s work, the ten principles, and examples of how the principles can be realized in offerings for educators.
