Free Webinar 9/17/2018 

Corwin Press, Inc. Presents:

Topic:  JOHN HATTIE on 

Visible Learning Feedback


Feedback is one of the most powerful influences on learning and achievement – if you get it right.

 Professor John Hattie’s landmark Visible Learning research concluded that effective feedback, combined with effective instruction, improves the rate of learning by a factor of 2! But first, educators must know the difference between effective and ineffective feedback. 

In this webinar, Professor John Hattie will explain how to distinguish between the two and provide answers to some of the most crucial questions.

Attend this webinar for answers to some of the biggest questions surrounding feedback like:
• Should educators primarily be givers or receivers of feedback from students?
• Is feedback more effective when clearly directed at the task or process, or is it directed at the person?
• What are the best uses of Feed Up, Feed Back, and Feed Forward?
