Visible Learning for Literacy

Wednesday 3 June

8:00am - 2:00pm AEST



Visible Learning for Literacy offers a strategic and coherent approach to learning by applying Hattie’s effect sizes to literacy within the three-phase model. This approach empowers educators to select those high-yield literacy practices, plan lessons, and informs them on what works best in each phase of the learning.

8:00am - 2:00pm AEST




Keeping student learning at the forefront of professional learning communities requires that we also recognise the vital role that teachers and leaders play in the equation of teaching and learning. This means that PLCs must take on two additional challenges: maximising individual expertise, while harnessing the power of collaborative expertise that can be developed with peers. It is critical that we go beyond the examination of student learning and examine teacher learning as well.

Leaders are often told they need to be instructional leaders because this type of leadership is supported by research, and can have an enormous impact on student learning. Although instructional leadership is one of the most researched forms of leadership, very little practical insight into how to implement it exists, and many leaders struggle to put it into practice. Peter DeWitt, Ed.D. will take the research behind instructional leadership, and dive deeper into six areas that he found is crucial to practices that lead to instructional leadership.

Friday 26 June

8:00am - 2:00pm AEST



James Nottingham will give an in-depth exploration of the best ways to develop resilience, curiosity and deep learning through:

  • Understanding how, when and for whom growth mindset helps, as well as when it doesn’t
  • Identifying the best ways to boost student efficacy as well as staff collective efficacy
  • Determining how to adjust feedback processes so that the actual gains live up to those identified by research (between 50-83% gain in progress)
  • Exploring how the Learning Pit encourages students to step out of their comfort zone, willingly choose challenge, and to stick at their learning until they achieve a deep level of mastery



Wednesday 12 August

8:00am - 2:00pm AEST



During this day you will hear about a research-based model of learning and how to apply the principles to achieve more effective learning outcomes for your learners. You will consider how learning strategies can be used to maximise impact so that learners develop the skill, the will and the thrill of learning and what strategies work best at the surface, deep and transfer phases of learning. 

Don't miss hearing from John Hattie and Sam Rodgers!

Upcoming Conferences



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


When: November 16-17, 2020
Where: Grand Hyatt, 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 16-17 November 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.
