 Visible Learning with Dr. John Hattie | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 1716

In this episode, Dr. John Hattie, Professor at the University of Melbourne in Australia, reflects on his years of research in the field of education, most notably, his 25-plus years dedicated to Visible Learning and how effect size can serve as a North Star toward improved classroom instruction. Among the many topics discussed include understanding the true meaning behind data-driven decisions, how educators too often use Hattie's Effect Size numbers as a "check list" rather than a holistic approach for better teaching and why principals should become more laser focused on instructional leadership to change schools. In the end, Hattie's goal is to change the narrative from "how we teach, to what works best" through the nine different categories of visible learning research. Website: www.visiblelearning.com.
