How Students Learn –
Improving how students approach learning


Foundation Day Seminar

This day 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.

The Foundation Day is run by a Corwin Accredited Visible Learning Consultant. John Hattie will be presenting How Students Learn during Day 2 only.
