CLARITY: What Matters Most in Learning, Teaching, and Leading
Tuesday, December 10, 2019 - 10:30am AEDT

Presented by Lyn Sharratt

Bringing Clarity to the elements that sharpen precision-in-practice ensures knowing “where to next.” Gaining Clarity is dependent on a set of interrelated concepts deployed within an evidence-proven framework and implemented consistently and reflectively across all systems, schools, and classrooms. Join Lyn Sharratt in this three-part webinar, in which she describes how Clarity can be realized in 1. Learning, 2. Teaching, and 3. Leading. Lyn promises no silver bullets; after all, there are none. The real power of data, she insists, resides in the “aha” outcomes of collaborative conversations with, and ‘roll-up-your sleeves’ work by ALL stakeholders, focused on students’ faces, as data today is instruction tomorrow.

Adaptive Expertise and Professional Learning
Presented by Deidre Le Fevre and Kaye Twyford

How can professional learning in education respond to growing inequality, and the rapid social and technological change that surrounds us? It is more important than ever that educators continually learn, improve their practice, and respond to the diverse learners and communities they work with. This webinar presents “developing adaptive expertise” as a way that educators can help realize transformative improvement in their own practice and for their learners. Deidre Le Fevre and Kaye Twyford will explain what adaptive expertise is, how it works, why it helps create change and improvement in complex learning environments, and how it can be applied in your own context.

What's Deep About Deep Learning
Joanne Quinn and Michael Fullan

The time for debate has passed. We need to transform learning now. In New Pedagogies for Deep Learning Joanne Quinn and Michael Fullan have discovered that when we transform learning, we also transform lives because deep learning is meaningful, gives purpose, and unleashes potential. The challenge is how to make this shift for all students...in all classrooms...in all schools. In this webinar, Quinn and Fullan explore this shift and introduce to participants the tools, tips, and strategies for realizing deep learning.

Know Thy Impact
John Hattie | Sept 2019

Evidence lies at the heart of Visible Learning. In fact, one of the key starting points of Visible Learning involves school leaders having robust discussions about what impact means in their schools, which includes an understanding of where students are in their learning, what progress looks like, and how to determine next steps. Essentially, “knowing thy impact” means connecting what educators do with what learners learn. In this webinar, Professor John Hattie will discuss why it's important to “know thy impact” and how to implement a cycle of inquiry, evaluation, and implementation into your school.

Leadership Coaching
Peter DeWitt | May 2019

Why do leaders need coaches? It’s an all-too-common occurrence: leaders are being asked to do more with fewer resources, putting them at risk of losing sight of their moral purpose. Because of this, coaches have become a must-have resource. Helping leaders focus on impactful goals, coaches also demonstrate how leaders can become better coaches for their assistant principals, building an overall stronger school community. Join leadership author, consultant, and coach Peter DeWitt as he uses a unique case study approach to guide participants through the coaching process.

Developing Expert Learners
with Michael McDowell | Feb 2019

We strive to empower our students to lead their own inquiry, discover knowledge, and construct approaches to solving real-life challenges. Often, though, we make the mistake of designing learning experiences that burden students with the unrealistic expectation of expertise that hasn’t yet been developed. The solution: proper scaffolding for surface, deep, and transfer learning. In this webinar, Michael McDowell discusses practices that strategically support students as they move from novices to experts in core academics.

Visible Learning Feedback
with John Hattie

Feedback is one of the most powerful influences on learning and achievement – if you get it right. Professor John Hattie’s landmark Visible Learning research concluded that effective feedback, combined with effective instruction, improves the rate of learning by a factor of 2! But first, educators must know the difference between effective and ineffective feedback. In this webinar, Professor John Hattie will explain how to distinguish between the two and provide answers to some of the most crucial questions.

10 Mindframes for Visible Learning: Teaching for Success
with John Hattie

John Hattie’s landmark Visible Learning research concluded that one of the most important influences of student achievement is how teachers think about learning and their own role. The 10 Mindframes, which should underpin every action in schools, are founded on the principle that teachers are evaluators, change agents, learning experts, and seekers of feedback who are constantly engaged with dialogue and challenge. Join John Hattie to learn more about the 10 Mindframes and understand their importance.
