Balanced research and practice
This presentation is about a large scale study, consisting of multiple studies, entitled “Inclusive Education for Gifted Students in the Netherlands: A Systemic Approach”. This project focuses on the impact of environmental (f)actors on educational interventions for gifted students, in order to improve inclusive primary and secondary education for Dutch gifted students. The impact of educational adaptations for gifted students may vary, depending on several (f)actors. From a systemic perspective, it seems likely that the success of interventions for gifted students may depend on involvement of different environmental (f)actors in the system around the student. Therefore, this project focuses on educational (teachers), policy (school leaders), and family (parents) actors, using a systemic approach to investigate working mechanisms and underlying conditions of educational interventions for gifted students.
