Equity is a Talent Development Mindset:
Develop diverse talents in an inclusive community!
Start Your Talent Development Journey Today!
This course prepares you with new vision and practical tools for developing all of your students’ talent potential and achievement. You’ll develop a “talent development mindset” that integrates equity with excellence to view all learners’ potential as tomorrow’s innovators, today. Your students gain new confidence, self-efficacy, and purpose as they begin to “talk talent,” identifying these all-important “aptitudes of innovators” in themselves and applying them in daily learning: curiosity, logical reasoning, creativity, insight, persistence, metacognition, leadership (and more!).
You’ll gain practical ways that you can nurture these talent aptitudes, right in the context of your regular curriculum.
You will be able to…
- Challenge and change mindsets about talent development using the What is Talent? Quiz and debriefing to uncover myths and truths.
- Empower learners to self-identify their strengths in the “aptitudes of innovators” and set growth goals using the Talent Aptitude Survey.
- Build learner self-efficacy and purpose as you begin to “Talk Talent” (creativity, persistence, reasoning, leadership, etc.) in the context of your instructional plans.
- Communicate with parents/families how they can nurture latent talents that may appear “negative” but indicate learners’ hidden potential to be developed.
- Teach the aptitudes of STEM and humanities innovators through talent-targeted goals based in your current curriculum.

Read what educators like you gained from Dr. Paynter’s courses:
I was very excited to sign up for Dr. Jeanne Paynter’s course. Dr. Paynter’s idea that ‘identifying and nurturing individual talents focuses effort and is the foundation of a growth mindset’ was transformational.
Because of this course, I now strive to create a talent development mindset. The tools Dr Paynter provided in using talent targeted language proved invaluable. I highly recommend her book and course to all teachers.
Alicia H. Fisher, Grade 5 Teacher
I am a teacher from a city and resources are limited, as well as time. Dr. Paynter’s course broadened my perspective on how we can engage students to teach students fundamental skills that are essential to being successful in life. Skills such as having empathy, being resourceful, and developing communication skills.
I will surely take all that I have learned through this program with me throughout my teaching career. and I can't wait to share what I have learned with others.
Jazmine Banks, K-6 Elementary Teacher
Dr. Paynter’s approach to talent development is practical and effective. As a result of her course, I’m better able to identify and foster my students’ potential as I plan and deliver instruction.
Using academic content as a springboard for developing innovative talents has been such a valuable technique!
Mitchell Hall, teacher
I felt I did not have enough in my teacher toolbox to understand talent development, nor did I have strategies to keep my students engaged. Since taking this course, I now have an understanding of what these students want and need to encourage engagement and motivation.
Dr. Paynter’s course has changed the way I approach my lesson/unit planning and the course text, “Teach to Develop Talent” has become a go-to tool that I reference weekly.
Deana Burnside, Teacher and Intervention Specialist
After working with a large committee of district stakeholders on revising our Mission and Vision statement, the next step was finding a way to transform teaching and learning to accommodate the new competencies we had identified as crucial for future student success.
When I found Jeanne’s book, Teach to Develop Talent, I knew I had found a perfect way to operationalize those shifts in our district.
Dr. David Meoli, Assistant Superintendent
As a transformational teacher-leader, I found it was vital for me to nurture my students' talents so they could recognize their potential as tomorrow's innovators.
The talent-targeted teaching model helped me personalize my lessons for long-term talent development in my students.
Dr. Lori Pitcock, Instructional Coach
Meet Your Instructor:
Dr. Jeanne L. Paynter
For three decades I have been developing and implementing Pk-12 talent development programs targeting the participation and achievement of culturally, economically, and linguistically diverse (CLED) learners.
Now, you can benefit from my extensive work discovering effective strategies to achieve equity in excellence.
My advanced degrees were completed at the Johns Hopkins University, a pioneer and world leader in talent development programs and research.
The strategies in Teach to Develop Talent: How to Motivate Tomorrow’s Innovators Today have been praised by international experts in innovation education.
However, what is most important to me is what the teachers who have used them have to say! Read their testimonials and decide if the outcomes they achieved are the outcomes, you want also. I think they are.
I deeply care about supporting you to be a successful professional who makes a lasting impact!
Remember: Equity is a Talent Development Mindset is not a “one-shot” or stand-alone, but presents the foundation for a complete model, talent-targeted teaching and learning. Additional online courses will build on the investment you’ve made in this course!
