Visible Learning Insights presents a fascinating ‘inside view’ of the ground-breaking research of John Hattie. Together, the authors John Hattie and Klaus Zierer embark on a mission to build on the internationally renowned work and combine the power and authority of the research with the real ‘coal face’ experience of schools.

Offering a concise introduction into the ‘Visible Learning Story’, the book provides busy teachers with a guide to why the Visible Learning research is so vital and the difference it can make to learning outcomes. It includes:

  • An in-depth interview with John Hattie.
  • Clearly structured chapters that focus on the core messages of ‘Visible Learning’ and infer practical consequences for the everyday job of teaching.
  • FAQs to Visible Learning that provide an invaluable introduction to the language of learning and success in schools.
  • An overview of the current data set with over 1,400 meta analyses.

Intended for teachers, teacher students, education researchers, parents and all who are interested in successful learning, teaching, and schooling, this short and elegant introduction outlines just what is required to translate Hattie’s research into improved school performance.
