Gifted students in rural and remote settings

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Researchpeer-review


In this chapter, we reflect on key ideas from the text and identify priorities for future research and scholarship in gifted education, with a focus on Australia and New Zealand. Exploring Gifted Education: Australian and New Zealand Perspectives represents the first dedicated attempt to bring together scholars from both countries to review the research base on a series of relevant topics in contemporary gifted education. This collaboration comes at a time when an increasing number of authors from New Zealand are submitting work to the (traditionally Australiadominated) Australasian Journal of Gifted Education, and soon after the World Council for Gifted and Talented Children held their biennial conference in Sydney, which included many contributions from Australian and New Zealand scholars and practitioners. Reflection on the state of the field in both countries, and consideration of possible next steps, is timely.
