How Students Learn –
Improving how students approach learning


Professor John Hattie and the Visible Learningplus team know about the learning strategies that have the greatest impact on learners – they know what works! – from attending this symposium you will be able to use the evidence from Professor Hattie’s most recent research to plan effective learning in your classroom.

There is a science to learning and we are finding out more and more about what works best to support the learning processes that make a difference for your learners. During the symposium you will hear about how learning strategies can be used to maximize impact so that learners develop the skill, the will and the thrill of learning! You will engage in the hands on activities and learn first-hand about your learning processes and those of your learners – as the puzzle of learning is revealed throughout the day.
