This webinar series links the biggest ever research project on teaching strategies, John Hattie’s Visible Learning Meta-analysis, to practical classroom implementation.
Participants will examine visible learning effect sizes and influences, as well as begin to identify instructional strategies, ideas, and tools that are likely to be most impactful to student learning in mathematics.
By the end of this professional learning series, participants will:
- Explore visible learning influences and potential impact based on effect size;
- Discover the role of teacher clarity in mathematics learning;
- Differentiate between direct and dialogic instruction based on various distinctions;
- Focus on how using the right approach at the right time allows teachers more intentionally design experiences in the mathematics classroom;
- Understand that there are three phases of learning and the unique importance of each: surface, deep, and transfer; and
- Engage in high impact strategies that model visible learning for mathematics through tasks, dialogue, collaboration, video viewing and reflection that model different phases of learning.
