National Curriculum Series
With the National Curriculum fast approaching (and already beginning to be implemented in Queensland)
teachers and school leadership are looking for professional learning workshops that go beyond the
documentation on the ACARA or state organised websites. We partner teachers to develop National Curriculum
Documentation into practical, dynamic curriculum that teachers can readily implement in their school context

Workshop Outline
       This workshop is designed to explore the key findings of John Hattie’s ground-breaking research into
       what impacts learning. We will look at the top Effect Sizes and discuss the implications for the
       classroom teacher.
       You will build on your understanding of the importance of quality, varied feedback in the design
       process. Explore Learning Goals and Success Criteria as tools for placing the student at the centre of
       the learning process.
       We will look at Peter Skillman’s Marshmallow Challenge as an activity that provides great insight into
       the iterative process and how feedback plays a critical role in improving the final product, this links
       with John Hattie’s Visible Learning concept powerfully, as his research identifies feedback as the single
       most powerful influence over student learning.
       The National Curriculum emphasises the need for students to develop capability in monitoring their
       own learning, and for teachers to provide different types of feedback, whilst nationally regulated tests
       (such as NAPLAN) focus on summative assessment of progression.
       The workshop is highly practical and will enable teachers to walk away with:
             A clear understanding of the top impacts on student learning,
             How to implement Learning Goals and Success Criteria into their classroom
             Ideas about how to use a range of feedback mechanisms throughout the learning process.
             A unit/s of work that they have been able to develop using the Visible Learning framework for
              more effective learning
             A feeling of being reinvigorated about how we can build genuine learning partnerships with
              our students.
