Professional learning for educators in the field of gifted education is an essential component of effective provision for gifted students. However, in Australia there are very few initial teacher education courses which include gifted education as a mandated subject. This paper will document the development of an online professional learning course in gifted education which responds to the challenge of teacher education using the opportunity provided by access to the online learning environment.
