The third HUPE Zagorje meeting was held at Secondary school Bedekovčina on March 12th, 2018. 11 members attended the meeting.
The agenda included a SEN workshop entitled: Engaging with special educational needs: Gifted and talented. The workshop was organised in cooperation with British Council. Stephen Hindlaugh, an experienced teacher and teacher trainer, introduced different strategies and classroom activities which can help us recognise, engage and appropriately evaluate gifted and talented children both in primary and secondary schools. The participants explored their own attitudes towards gifted and talented children and exchanged opinions and teaching methods, which will surely give support to their future work.
After the workshop, there was a prize draw, so one of the members won a British Council’s SEN online module. The participants have found the workshop both interesting and helpful.
We are thankful to British Council and the speaker Stephen Hindlaugh for organising such a great workshop!
