Visible Learning Insights

John Hattie, Klaus Zierer

Visible Learning Insights presents a fascinating ‘inside view’ of the ground-breaking research of John Hattie. Together, the authors John Hattie and Klaus Zierer embark on a mission to build on the internationally renowned work and combine the power and authority of the research with the real ‘coal face’ experience of schools.

Offering a concise introduction into the ‘Visible Learning Story’, the book provides busy teachers with a guide to why the Visible Learning research is so vital and the difference it can make to learning outcomes. It includes:

* An in-depth interview with John Hattie.
* Clearly structured chapters that focus on the core messages of ‘Visible * Learning’ and infer practical consequences for the everyday job of teaching.
* FAQs to Visible Learning that provide an invaluable introduction to the language of learning and success in schools.
* An overview of the current data set with over 1,400 meta analyses.

Intended for teachers, teacher students, education researchers, parents and all who are interested in successful learning, teaching, and schooling, this short and elegant introduction outlines just what is required to translate Hattie’s research into improved school performance.

Visible Learning Feedback

Feedback is arguably the most critical and powerful aspect of teaching and learning. Yet, there remains a paradox: why is feedback so powerful and why is it so variable? It is this paradox which Visible Learning: Feedback aims to unravel and resolve.

Combining research excellence, theory and vast teaching expertise, this book covers the principles and practicalities of feedback, including:

* the variability of feedback
* the importance of surface, deep and transfer contexts
* student to teacher feedback
* peer to peer feedback
* the power of within lesson feedback and manageable post-lesson feedback.

With numerous case-studies, examples and engaging anecdotes woven throughout, the authors also shed light on what creates an effective feedback culture and provide the teaching and learning structures which give the best possible framework for feedback.

Visible Learning: Feedback brings together two internationally known educators and merges Hattie’s world-famous research expertise with Clarke’s vast experience of classroom practice and application, making this book an essential resource for teachers in any setting, phase or country.

In this honest and practical guide, Sackstein prompts you to reflect as you stretch for personal and professional growth.
