Dutch term or phrase: Vooruitwerklab
Onderwijsterm Hoogbegaafden.

De context heb ik al vertaald. Met een vertaling van 'Vooruitwerken' ben ik al geholpen. De term Vooruitwerklab ben ik nog niet in internationale teksten tegengekomen. Met de initiatoren van het Vooruitwerklab heb ik al contact gezocht, echter nog geen respons.

The Centrum voor Begaafdheidsonderzoek offers gifted and talented students from all over The Netherland the opportunity to work together in groups of 10 to 12 children on diverse asignments one afternoon per week during 10 weeks. Parents register their children for participation and they also pay the costs.

The Vooruitwerklab is process-oriented: the children learn to reflect on their own thinking strategies. By means of diverse asignments learning styles are presented as a choice. Children do not only learn the working of different learning styles, but they also experience their own preferred learning styles via sophisticated assignments.
Moreover, children are encouraged to recognize and name other ways of thinking, and to experiment with these ways of thinking. This leads to more insight in the strong and weak sites of their own thinking profiles, and to a greater flexibility, which is necessary to tackle complex assignments.

Asker: Bij Vooruitwerkwerklab wordt er volgens mij gedifferentieerd in werkvorm. De term 'Versneld leren' komt net zo goed in het Nederlands voor.

Guess, the term's brand new, so a sort of mainly sense-oriented translation can be developed. Basically any teaching strategy of accelerated learning program involves the component 'advanced'; and in my version i focus on the similarity: 'looking ahead', 'leaning in advance', 'forseeing'...Though all in all it's mainly guessing indeed :)
