Research and a keynote presentation from John Hattie will start our conversation about support for teachers and leaders and specifically how we can make learning visible to educators and students.

John Hattie is a professor at the University of Melbourne. His influential 2008 book, Visible Learning: A synthesis of over 800 Meta-Analyses Relating to Achievement, is believed to be the world's largest evidence-based study into the factors which improve student learning.

Involving more than 80 million students from around the world and bringing together 50,000 smaller studies, the study found positive teacher-student interaction is the most important factor in effective teaching. Prepare for an enriching conversation on how we can deepen learning possibilities! Click the covers to learn more about Hattie's research.

"A few years ago, I was prompted to reflect on and articulate my dream for my students.  My dream for my students is that each of them recognizes their potential and recognizes the challenge in realizing that goal.  I want each student to be able to ask a better question than she did the day before.  I want each student to be able to discover his passion and be proud of his journey towards self-actualization.  I hope each student will generate confidence, practice empathy, and cultivate an intrinsic love of learning." - Sarah Brown Wessling
