  1. I am interested in what you’re planning to offer around gifted and talented education. I did not see anything listed under workshops or strands.

      Hi April,
      You can search the CEC schedule (https://ww3.aievolution.com/cec1501/index.cfm?do=cnt.page&pg=1007) for gifted and talented under the category field – below the “Strands” section are the “Primary Topic Areas.” There are 17 sessions on gifted and talented education.
