During the Visible Learningplus Foundation Day Institute with John Hattie and Peter DeWitt, participants will identify and discuss:

  • the most important messages from the Visible Learning research
  • learn about the five strands of Visible Learning, and
  • know the difference between the influences that ‘do’ and ‘do not’ make a significant difference to student achievement.

Visible Learning Plus

Practical activities and take-away tools that have the highest impact on student learning will be discussed.

Visible Learning is an in-depth school change model of professional learning and development based on the research of Professor John Hattie. Through the lens of Visible Learning evidence, educators will learn to systematically examine effective instructional practices in order to determine the “impact” on student achievement and learning.

By considering the effects of the practices of teachers and leaders, schools will be able to make substantial gains in student achievement.
