Why leave student success up to chance? There are deliberate practices we can implement as leaders and teachers which will make a difference to the inputs learners bring to their learning, and the skill, will and thrill as a result of learning. Organised around the DIIE framework, this symposium takes you through a process for diagnosing, determining high impact interventions, quality implementation and evaluating to accelerate the impact your teaching has on student learning.

Attend this symposium to:

  • Hear about the most current research on what works best to accelerate student learning
  • Discover how well you cater for each aspect of the skill, will (dispositions) and thrill (motivation) of learning
  • Take a deep dive into the four stages of the DIIE model: Diagnosis and Discovery, Intervention, Implementation, and Evaluation
  • Hear best practices in action and examples from schools and classrooms around the world
  • Walk away with practical ideas, strategies and resources to help maximise learning and impact.
