Since 1980 (for over 30 years!), the Belin-Blank Center has provided an intensive residential experience for general education teachers who want to learn more about gifted education. This experience is designed for those with little or no previous background in gifted education. This is a GREAT way to encourage a colleague in your building to join you in your support for gifted programs!
The Connie Belin and Jacqueline N. Blank Fellowship program, June 27 – July 1, 2011, provides
- Full room and board in a University of Iowa residence hall
- Readings and university resources
- Presentations from leaders in gifted education
Participants’ districts are asked to pay a $250 materials fee for books and readings. Participants may also enroll in two graduate-level credit hours. Those who choose this credit option will receive an automatic tuition scholarship and pay only 50% of the graduate-level tuition.
