Gifted Education is a broad field covering studies of high ability individuals, and the multiple approaches to meet the educational and related needs of these individuals.

Members of the Gifted Education disciplinary hub form an integral part of GERRIC, the pre-eminent office of gifted education research in the southern hemisphere.

Our scholars regularly attract prestigious grant funding from bodies such as the Australian Research Council and the US-based John Templeton Foundation, and our research has been published in many major international and national journals in the field.

Our higher degree research students undertake contemporary research in areas including acceleration/ability grouping, career development, differentiating curriculum and pedagogy, decision-making, disadvantaged and culturally diverse populations, highly gifted populations, identification, indigenous populations, mathematics education, motivation, multi-literacies, science education, socio-emotional development, technology-enabled learning, twice exceptionality and underachievement from early childhood to tertiary contexts.
