The TALENT Approach: An Integrated Model for Promoting Quality Education in Hong Kong

TALENT取向 ── 一個促進香港優質教育的整合模式

Abstract

Education reform in Hong Kong has revolved around two main concerns. One concern is to provide equal access to educational opportunities for all students (equity), and the other concern is to allow all students to develop their fullest potential and work toward the highest level of their abilities (excellence). The TALENT approach developed under the Programs for the Gifted and Talented at the Chinese University of Hong Kong is briefly introduced as a model balancing equity and excellence. The model is intended to capitalize on the experiences of gifted education, extending it to talent development for all students. TALENT, as an acronym, refers to Talent, Acceleration, Learning Scales, Enrichment, Novelty, and Thinking, outlining six areas of practice in talent development. While providing an orientation to the development of talents in all students, the TALENT approach can also be conceptualized as an integrated model of teaching strategies to promote quality education for all students.
