Duke TIP Podcast a nice primer for parents.
Enjoyed listening to a children's book author.
Wonderful conversations with teachers, authors, and TIPsters!
Duke TIP is the best!
An erudite (but rarely dry!) and deep view into the full spectrum of work that drives Duke TIP and similar work around gifted/talented students and education. Interesting takes on a narrow subject. Great work!
