AAGC Conference 
Alabama’s annual conference, held in late September each year, brings together gifted/talented teachers and coordinators, classroom teachers, school administrators, parents, pre-service teachers, and college/university faculty to explore current issues in gifted education. Our conference brings nationally known leaders in the field of gifted education as well as faculty from Alabama’s college/university gifted programs, and Alabama’s gifted education teachers together to provide three days of professional development.  Sessions include keynote speeches, one hour sessions on a variety of practical strategies for teachers and parents, and hands-on half-day workshops. Vendors offer a variety of materials and information for gifted educators and parents.

The annual conference schedule  and venue for the next few years is listed below. Please make your plans to attend this year. You’ll leave with a head full of ideas and strategies to  help you meet the needs of your gifted learners!

Exhibitor/Vendor Application/Contract
Conference App Sponsorship Contract

AAGC wants YOU to contribute to our 2016 Annual Conference at McWane Science Center! Last year we introduced our new conference app. It was a huge success so we plan to roll out this year’s app with additional features to make your conference experience interactive as well as informative.

Selection Criteria: We would like to have a varied program for conference attendees.  We especially want high quality teacher-friendly sessions. Think about units/lessons you have taught as well as instructional strategies, resources, or best practices for gifted learners. If submitting a concept-based unit for consideration, you may be asked to send your unit for the program committee to review. We anticipate a large number of parents, so we are seeking parent-friendly sessions, also. All sessions are 45 minutes. Most rooms accommodate approximately 30 attendees. If your session is accepted, you will need to upload your handouts prior to the conference so that they can be made available to attendees on our conference app
