The Belin-Blank Center is pleased to offer a spring Webinar this year featuring Dr. Jaime Castellano and an exploration about identifying and serving gifted Latino students. With diversity steadily increasing in our schools, this Webinar will give you greater confidence in serving ALL your high-ability students!
Identifying and Serving Gifted, Advanced, and High-Ability Hispanic/Latino Students: Moving the Cause Forward
February 2, 2017 4:30 – 6:00 p.m.
Dr. Castellano will focus on identifying and serving this unique, intra-ethnically diverse group of students. Implications, recommendations, and practices for learning, teaching, and leading will be shared. When programs, services, and advocacy are part of a dynamic infrastructure designed to meet the needs of our best and brightest Hispanic/Latino students, opportunities for experiencing success know no boundaries.
Participants register ONE computer for the webinar, allowing multiple participants to access the session. A school can register and show to a room filled with staff, for example. If the date or time isn’t convenient, participants may choose the DVD option.
Cost: $45 for registration for either the Webinar or the DVD; $55 for registration for BOTH the Webinar and the DVD.
For those registered in a Belin-Blank Center class, the registration is discounted (choose that option on the Registration site).
Dr. Castellano will teach RCE:4124:0WKA Ethnic and Cultural Issues & Giftedness to expand on the content in the Webinar; the class begins on February 9 and continues through March 1. Those enrolled in the class must have access to the Webinar, either by registering their own computer or by participating through a school, AEA, or colleague’s registration. Prospective students must be registered as University of Iowa Division of Continuing Education students; you can find more information here.
