Applications for Masters in Gifted Education at National Institute of Education, Singapore still ongoing

Fairly recently, I have been tasked to be the Coordinator of the Masters in Gifted Education programme at our Institution (National Institute of Education, Nanyang Technological University) here in Singapore. I would like to invite teachers, gifted ed practitioners, aspiring researchers/academics who may be interested to send in their applications to pursue a Masters in Gifted Education. Deadline is until 22 January 2012.

Here is our flyer for those who may be interested in doing further studies.

You can also email me at rhoda (dot) bacsal (at) nie (dot) edu (dot) sg for details.

Myra is a Teacher Educator and a registered clinical psychologist based in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. Prior to moving to the Middle East, she lived for eleven years in Singapore serving as a teacher educator. She has edited five books on rediscovering children’s literature in Asia (with a focus on the Philippines, Malaysia, India, China, Japan) as part of the proceedings for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content where she served as the Chair of the Programme Committee for the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference from 2011 until 2019. While she is an academic by day, she is a closet poet and a book hunter at heart. When she is not reading or writing about books or planning her next reads, she is hoping desperately to smash that shuttlecock to smithereens because Badminton Is Life (still looking for badminton courts here at UAE - suggestions are most welcome).

    • Hi TBM, thanks. But it’s really more work than I imagined it to be – and it’s not as if I was lacking in stuff to do to begin with, so I’m not sure whether Congrats is in order. Hahaha. But thanks anyway, I deeply appreciate that.


  1. How do you do it all, Myra. Do you know my school is for gifted students?


    • Hi Linda! Yup, you did tell me about your school being for gifted students! Does your school have a subscription for Gifted Child Quarterly and Roeper Review? I had a manuscript published in each journal last year (I also had one in GCQ in 2010) – I have two scheduled this year for Roeper, so that’s also bound to be exciting.

      I really don’t know sometimes how I manage, I feel more exhausted now though because of this new role (admin work tends to sap the daylights out of anyone, I expect) – plus I also do teaching supervision and clinical supervision – this is of course on top of my teaching load, research, and papers I need to publish. Crazy crazy crazy times, really.
