"Educating gifted and talented children – turning research into practice. With the group of researchers and practitioners in the area of gifted and talented education being relatively small the need to come together on a global scale is essential. This is why this international conference will focus on working together in transforming knowledge from research into practical tools for teachers and other educators to use on an everyday basis. We will urge all participants to take part in this collaboration and networking in order for the gifted area to advance. We might even agree on a joint research project to be carried out on a global scale."
2015 National Conference: Tapping the Power of Creative Minds. The conference focus is on the research being done in social cognitive neuroscience and affective psychology as it relates to how the arts, theatre specifically, influences psychological and emotional development.
"Most conferences about giftedness focus primarily on educational issues. While they may include a few presentations about the social and emotional development and needs of gifted people and the challenges facing the gifted population, these presentations play a minor role.
SENG conferences reverse the priorities. We believe that recognizing, understanding, and accepting the social and emotional needs of this population are the first priorities for teachers, parents, and counselors. SENG supports strong gifted education programs, but we believe the emotional piece is the foundation for the development of healthy, happy, well-adjusted, appropriately educated, and contributing gifted members of society."
