In recent years there has been a notable growth in research on the education, care and detection of people with high intellectual abilities. Numerous publications and conferences address these issues. Approximately 2.28% of the world's population has high intellectual abilities, which is why society demands specialized education in this matter.
This Master’s Degree in Advanced Studies in Giftedness and Talent Development from Nebrija University responds to this challenge for the psychoeducational intervention that must advance in order to adequately serve minors with these abilities. The research vocation of the program will allow new scientific studies, providing in-depth knowledge on this part of the population and having a positive impact on personalized and quality attention.
This social demand is also reflected in numerous academic movements and researchers whose objective is the understanding of the population with high intellectual capacities and the scientific analysis, based on the advances in neuroscience, of their cognitive functioning. This fact is reflected in an important number of scientific publications whose objective is the study of this population, in which variables such as attention processes, memory and emotional processes are considered, and that offer a multidimensional response.
As it is a research-oriented master's degree, it is important to note that the degree is based on the scientific, academic, professional and research experience of the teaching team of the School of Languages and Education, and their participation, as guest lecturers, in training programs of universities and institutions from various countries.
Regarding scientific experience, we must highlight that the Department of Education has the Research Group on Cognition, Education and Individual Differences (CEDI), composed of 12 researchers, of which 11 are doctors, and which is directed by Dr. Jon Andoni Duñabeitia as Principal Investigator. His main research activity deals with the psychoeducational aspects that determine the different cognitive profiles of students at different educational levels, attending to four basic psychological processes: attention, memory, emotion and perception.
On the other hand, the Cognitive Science Center - C3, which brings together permanent research staff from the Nebrija University School of Languages and Education and external affiliated staff of the first-class international level, is oriented towards excellent research in the area of the science of conduct or behavior. It focuses its scientific work on disciplines that explore human behavior and how it is modulated in relation to oneself and to the context, attending mainly to sciences such as pedagogy and experimental psychology, and giving a highly relevant role to cognitive science and the neurosciences.Read Less
