Fireside Chat with Scott Barry Kaufman

What is giftedness, really? Who should be identified as gifted? How can we increase representation of twice-exceptional students in gifted education? What should the goal of gifted education be? What is self-actualization and why is it important? Why should gifted educators care about self-actualization? Does creativity matter at all for gifted education?

These questions and more will be discussed in this fireside chat with humanistic psychologist Scott Barry Kaufman, author of Ungifted: Intelligence Redefined, Wired to Create: Unraveling the Mysteries of the Creative Mind, and Transcend: The New Science of Self-Actualization.
