Visible Learning Teaching Strategies and John Hattie

Today on, we look at some outside-the-box teaching strategies designed to go beyond the norm. Jacqui Murray, a frequent (and TeachHUB Magazine) contributing writer, outlines the fresh teaching strategies set forth by John Hattie, a teacher and education researcher. Hattie is a proponent of what has come to be known as “Visible Learning”: “Visible teaching and learning occur when there is deliberate practice aimed at attaining mastery of the goal, when there is feedback given and sought, and when there are active, passionate, and engaging people (teacher, students, peers) participating in the act of learning.”

Jacqui sums up her article like this: “What it gets down to is simply good teaching. Worry less that you aren't up to the job (because of PD or classes or whatever else crosses your mind) and more about the students.”
