Visible Learning


Maximising Learning and Impact
Influences that matter the most to Student Learning

When: November 18-19, 2019
Where: Darwin, NT


If your goal is to understand how to further maximise the impact you are having on student learning, this Symposium is for you. Designed for school leaders and teachers, this day is about:

  • Developing a culture of impact
  • The characteristics and actions of educators who are evaluators
  • The importance of developing the skill, will and thrill of learners and learning
  • The latest research on instructional strategies that considerably accelerate student learning
  • Practices you can implement to know, understand and maximise your impact.

You will be immersed in the latest key messages from the research that identify the importance of ensuring we focus our time, energy and resources on those areas that have been identified as having a considerable impact on student learning.

Foundation Day
The Foundation day seminar supports participants to identify what has the greatest impact on student achievement and develops capacity to understand the key messages of the Visible Learning research. This research makes us stop and think about the vast amount we already do know and take stock about what really does make the difference to student learning. The seminar provides practical activities and take-away tools.

 VL for Maths       

Visible Learning for Mathematics 
Presented by Douglas Fisher and Lyn Coote

When:    November 20, 2010
Where:   Melbourne, VIC


It’s not enough to know what strategies work best – it’s knowing WHEN those practices are best leveraged to maximise students’ ownership of their learning.

Practical examples, insights and strategies to reflect on and use in your own practice is at the heart of this day. The focus will be on demonstrating how using the right approach at the right time can help you more intentionally design classroom experiences that hit the surface, deep, and transfer phases of learning. This session includes Visible Learning research, its connections to surface, deep, and transfer learning as it relates to mathematics, and the most impactful approaches to use in each stage of learning.


Participants will go deeper into:

  • Investigating the principles of Visible Learning research to the mathematics classroom.
  • Exploring the three phases of learning and the unique importance of each: surface, deep, and transfer.
  • Learning which mathematics practices have the greatest impact on student growth (and which have the least) to maximise and strategise teaching time.
  • Considering how to strategise what practices to implement at the right time in a student’s learning, while keeping rigour in mind.

Building and Developing Assessment Capable Visible Learners

Special 1 Day Only Event with Douglas Fisher and John Hattie

When:    Nov 22, 2019 
Where:   Sydney, NSW

The Visible Learning research is clear that when students know how to learn and are aware of strategies to help them learn, they are able to become their own teachers. Imagine students who describe their learning in these terms: "I know where I'm going, I have the tools I need for the journey, and I monitor my own progress." Now imagine the extraordinary difference this type of ownership makes in their progress over the course of a school year.

Join John Hattie and Doug Fisher as they share with you how to make this scenario an everyday reality in your classroom - one that will significantly increase your students' capacity to thrive as they take responsibility for their own learning. Hear them talk about how the right approach at the right time can create classroom experiences that hit the surface, deep, and transfer phases of learning. This will include:

  • Overview of Visible Learning
  • Overview of Assessment Capable Visible Learners
  • Helping students understand their current performance and where they are going

If there is one core message at this Symposium that we want you to come away with, it is this: Assessment-capable visible learners are cultivated by assessment-capable teachers.

Upcoming Conferences:




Moving Learning Forward... not by chance but by DESIGN!

When: August 19-20, 2020
Where: Sydney, NSW

Following on from the extremely successful sell out 2019 Corwin Professional Learning Conference in Melbourne, the 2020 Corwin Professional Learning Conference will be held on 19-20 August in Sydney, Australia.

The 2020 conference theme, Moving Learning Forward… not by chance but by DESIGN brings together international and national educational researchers and practitioners. Throughout the conference they will share their expertise, research and best practices in deliberately designing education to move learning forward.

Moving Learning Forward… not by chance but by DESIGN is divided into three components - Voices, Case Studies and Workshops.

From the many Voices at the conference you will hear about current findings in educational research and the implications for learning design.

Through the Case Studies and Workshops you will gain invaluable practical examples from classroom practitioners and school leaders who have established research based practice in their schools.

If you believe that no students’ education should be left to chance, and that every educator should develop their capacity to design high impact learning, then Corwin Australia looks forward to seeing you at the Moving Learning Forward… not by chance but by DESIGN conference in 2020.

At the Corwin Professional Learning Conference 2020, you will:

  • Hear renowned authors share current findings in educational research to support strategic decision making to move learning forward.
  • Discover practical ways to translate the research into practice at a system, school, class and individual level.
  • Learn how to eliminate guesswork and focus efforts on using the most influential leadership and instructional practices to move learning forward.
  • Connect with educators who have direct experience in applying the research into practice and explore what you can do to make a difference in your school and in your classrooms.
