GT Endorsement


The GT Endorsement (State of Ohio) teaching license enhancement, provides holders with specific training in the nature and needs of Gifted, Talented and Creative (GTC) students. The program is moving toward a fully on-line offering base, and provides opportunity for degree seekers to work with GTC children during our GT@UT Summer Camp. 

GT@UT Summer Camp is a place where you (degree seekers) practice teaching and working with GTC children as a practicum experience, thus preparing you for work in your school district as an advocate for GTC learner needs. You will have practical application skills in an applied setting, with guidance and support from experts holding world-class credentials and reputations in the field.

The best parts? The program prepares you at the highest level for working effectively and successfully with GTC children in school settings. And, every Distance Learning (DL) course is nationally—Quality Matters (QM)—certified.
