G/T 6-Hour Update

Do you need your 6-Hour G/T Update?

According to the Texas State Plan for the Education of Gifted/Talented Students, teachers who provide instruction and services that are a part of the district's defined gifted/talented services receive 6 hours annually of professional development in gifted/talented education that is related to state teacher education standards.

Region 7 offers two different types of training to meet the varied professional staff development needs of schools, face-to-face or online in the Canvas Learning Management System.

Face-to-Face

Workshops, hosted either at the Region 7 ESC or on-site in your district, provide teachers with research-based information in an integrative, collaborative environment.  

Below is the list of the current 6 hours update sessions.  To register, click on the link provided. The sessions are held at Region 7 unless otherwise indicated.

*Sessions in blue are free to all Region 7 Districts.
