Program Overview


The Jockey Club “Giftedness Into Flourishing Talents” Project, established in November 2016, introduced the Gifted Education Lecture Series to educators, gifted students and their parents.

The Gifted Education Lecture Series (18-25 February 2017) on “Talent Development: Nurturing Creativity and Excellence” was the first major activities of the Project.

K. NG (SBS, JP, Secretary for Education, Education Bureau, The Government of HKSAR), Professor Joseph J. Y. SUNG (SBS, JP, Vice-Chancellor and President, CUHK), and other Guests of Honour followed by keynote speeches and distinguished lectures delivered by overseas scholars. This event was intended to bring together past experiences, current practices and updated research studies in the U.S. and Taiwan to advance our knowledge in gifted education and provide insights for us to bring talent development and gifted education in Hong Kong to a higher level of theoretical development and professional practice.
