Promoting Quality Education through Developing Gifted Programs: The University-School Tripartite Model of Talent Development
David W. CHAN（陳維鄂）
The development of gifted programs in Hong Kong reflects the changing notion of giftedness from a unitary to a multidimensional conceptualization. Based on the assumption that the majority of students have some talent areas that can be developed through the "gifted and talented" approach, the University-School Tripartite Model of Talent Development initiated at the Chinese University of Hong Kong has interrelated university-based, school-based, and university-school interface components that call for close collaboration between university and school.The Model serves as an invitation to research and development in all component areas. It also highlights the importance of translating exemplary university-based programs and practices into school-based activities for the gifted and for those who are less able such that enhanced quality education can be achieved for all students in Hong Kong.
