PD Framework

Introduction

The Gifted Education Section of the Education Bureau (EDB) and The Hong Kong Academy for Gifted Education (HKAGE) have jointly developed a new professional development framework in gifted education for all teachers in Hong Kong. This new framework aims at providing a clear pathway of professional development for teachers by fully utilizing the resources available from both the EDB and the HKAGE. The new framework has been launched since February 2012. 

 

Objectives of the Framework

There are two main objectives of developing this Framework:

 

  1. To meet the precise training needs of targeted key school stakeholder groups in Gifted Education
  2. To facilitate sustainable development of gifted education in schools

 

Under this framework, we strongly recommend schools to have senior staff charged with the following designated roles:

 

  • Management of Gifted Provision
    In order to ensure systematic development in school-based gifted provision, it is essential to have a holistic school planning including strategic programming and deployment of resources. It would be even more effective if a senior staff (e.g. principal, vice-principal) can be tasked to take up this role.

  • Coordination of Gifted Provision
    In order to ensure coherence and effectiveness of school-based gifted provision, it is essential to closely monitor the development and implementation of gifted programmes. This can be accomplished by trained teachers who specialise in pedagogical issues, and who can act as drivers for innovative pedagogical approaches as well as to source the necessary resources.

Features of the Framework

It is hoped that with this new professional development framework, the professional development pathways of teachers are made more explicit. Teachers can follow the route, according to their roles in school, to enroll in different professional development programmes. More importantly, the framework allows the EDB and the HKAGE to plan and design different programmes that address the diverse needs of teachers taking up different roles in school-based gifted education.
