The World Council for Gifted and Talented Children, whose international headquarters has been housed at WKU since 2011, hosted its biennial World Conference in Odense, Denmark, August 10-14.
Both Julia Roberts and Tracy Inman from The Center presented sessions. Julia also presented a session on advocacy with Lynette Baldwin, executive director of the Kentucky Association for Gifted Education.
Also attending the conference from WKU were Tyler Clark, executive administrator of the World Council, and Sam Oldenburg, The Center’s coordinator of technology and communications.
Julia, who currently serves as treasurer of the council’s executive committee, was pleased with the success of the conference.
“The World Council for gifted and Talented Children is an organization that promotes gifted education around the globe,” she said. “Sharing ideas and strategies with educators and parents from around the world is a tremendous opportunity for those advocating for gifted children and young people.”
The last World Conference was held in Louisville in 2013 and the next World Conference will be held in Sydney, Australia, in 2017.
