What is Visible Learning (VL)?

Visible Learning+ is the only school improvement programme developed by Professor John Hattie and is available in the UK exclusively through Osiris.

The programme is an in-depth system-wide change model of professional learning and development. It is based on Professor John Hattie’s ground-breaking research into what actually works best in schools to improve learning and progress.

Visible Learning+ has been designed for school leaders and teachers who are seeking to embed the latest research into how to further understand, evaluate and maximise impact on learning. The programme is based upon the premise that every student should experience at least one year’s growth over the course of one school year.

Completed over three years, Visible Learning+ consists of a series of workshops and evaluations that provide school leaders and teachers the knowledge and tools to engage with Professor John Hattie’s research and use evidence to evaluate instructional decisions.

Hear John Hattie explain how it works:

Why VL is perfect for your school

The Visible Learning+ Whole School Programme will transform your organisation, accelerating the process of individual and whole-school change. 

It does this by building the capacity of:

  • Learners to learn
  • Teachers to teach
  • Leaders to lead
  • Systems to improve

So what’s different about Visible Learning+?

For Leaders

  • Visible Learning+ focusses on diagnosis, intervention, implementation and evaluation
  • A practical inquiry model for school leaders to ask questions of themselves about the impact they are having on student achievement
  • Aligns systems and processes
  • Uses evidence so leaders can lead learning confidently
  • Strengthens evaluation and impact

For Teachers

  • Visible Learning+ shifts the focus from teaching to pupil learning
  • Impact data informs classroom practice at all stages
  • Professional inquiry ensures high impact strategies are implemented
  • Feedback to teachers on where to focus next is based upon pupil learning outcomes

For Learners

  • Become assessment-capable, so that they can answer the three big questions: Where am I going? How am I doing? Where to next?
  • They develop an understanding of the learning process and strategies so that they ‘know what to do, when they don’t know what to do’
  • Their thirst for learning increases as they are equipped to embrace challenges, learn from error, seek feedback and have ownership of the learning process
