At a Corwin event, expect a quality professional learning and development experience and tools that you can bring back to your school. You’ll meet fellow educators who share your concerns, passion, and commitment to improving teaching and learning. You’ll exchange ideas with the top experts in the field. No matter what event you choose to attend, you’ll walk away with new strategies, ideas, and a larger network of like-minded individuals.
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:
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.
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.
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.
Building upon prevailing PLC methodology, the workshop is designed to consider ways of refreshing current collaborative structures and support teachers’ decision making in the context of individual and collective efficacy, expectations, equity, and the activation of own learning.
Participants will walk away with an evidence-based framework and practical tools and strategies to support:

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:
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.

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:
