Talented & Gifted (TAG) Education Certificate Program
Pacific University's Center for Gifted Education offers an 11-credit certificate program for teachers, counselors, and parents who want to learn more about meeting the needs of gifted children.
The program starts with an introduction to gifted education including the history of gifted education and the Oregon TAG mandate. Courses on classroom strategies and the social and psychological foundations of gifted education are followed by a practicum where participants apply their knowledge and skills while working with talented and gifted students as well as their parents and teachers. Each class is offered on three Saturdays with the balance of coursework conducted online.
