Visible Learning

From 2015 to 2018 the Lower Mid North made a commitment to use John Hattie’s Visible Learning theory as the platform for partnership improvement. The Visible Learning program involves all educators in a professional learning program that develops learning environments to facilitate ongoing and sustainable improvement in learner achievement.

Visible Learning enables educators to focus on what is important, and aligns the work of leaders and teachers as we build student learning capacity, using an evidence based approach. Our Visible Learning focus in 2017 will help educators and educational leaders in their work of making sure students are assessment capable, know how to focus on their own learning, know how to establish their own learning goals and are able to action strategies to achieve their goals.

We would like to acknowledge the Ngadjuri and Kaurna people, the traditional custodians of this land within the Lower Mid North Partnership.

We acknowledge with gratitude that we share this land today and pay our respect to the elders both past, present and future.

For they hold the memories, the traditions, the culture and hopes of Indigenous people.
