Making Learning Visible: The Core Visible Learning Messages Applied to Literacy
What works best in teaching and learning? What approaches, interventions, and strategies accelerate learning in your school or classroom? The answer to these two driving questions resulted in the creation of the Visible Learning database almost 30 years ago, providing a robust collection of what has the potential to accelerate student learning. However, the major message from what is now 2,000+ meta-analyses from over 100,000 studies, with 273,000 effects and 320 influences, and includes over 300,000,000 students is: It is not how we teach that matters but the impact of our teaching that matters.
Join Dr. Hattie in this keynote session, as he outlines three core notions that explain how our school culture and mind frames lead us to higher achievement, examine how we think about learning and teaching, discuss the need to continuously evidence our impact, and delve into how to develop collective responsibility across educators and students.

Harness the Power of Feedback
The power of feedback is high, but feedback can be highly variable in its impact. The overall effect size for feedback is 0.62, yet understanding what makes feedback effective necessitates a move beyond merely supplying a score or grade. The focus is frequently solely on the provision of feedback, while the reception of the feedback and the integration of this feedback into subsequent stages of teaching and learning are often disregarded. Dr. John Hattie will delve into findings from an extensive body of research on feedback, considering both the perspective of the feedback giver AND the recipient, its variability, the costs to students of feedback, the optimal giving and receiving of feedback, and welcome questions and comments about feedback.
