Corwin and ACEL have formed a partnership that will give Australian educators opportunities to learn more about the Visible Learning research, the world’s largest evidence base on what works in K–12 education to raise student achievement, developed by Prof John Hattie of the University of Melbourne.
Corwin, exclusive provider of the Visible Learningplus model of professional learning in Australia, and ACEL have agreed to co-host Visible Learningplus symposiums across Australia in 2015 and 2016. The 2015 symposiums will be held on 6th August in Sydney, 7th August in Brisbane, 1st December in Sydney and on 2nd December in Rockhampton.

As part of the partnership, Corwin will also come on board as a key sponsor of the 2015 ACEL Annual Conference to be held in Sydney 30th September – 2nd October at the Sydney Hilton.

“Through Corwin’s partnership with ACEL, we are able to reach more educators and generate more opportunities that will make a significant impact on educational leadership throughout Australia,” said Brad Rosairo, Managing Director of Corwin.

The Visible Learning-plus model of school change provides the conditions to bring about ongoing and sustainable improvement in learner achievement. The symposiums will allow educational leadership teams, teacher teams, and other individuals to experience hands-on activities, video clips, and presentations by John Hattie and Deb Masters, the Global Director of Visible Learningplus. Participants will leave with a deep understanding of which practices have the most impact on student learning and a toolbox of effective learning strategies that can be implemented in their schools and classrooms.

“ACEL is very excited to join Corwin in this strong and substantive relationship,” said Aasha Murthy, ACEL CEO. “Together we believe we can develop and deliver high quality professional learning to educators across all sectors.”
Schools, networks, clusters and systems interested in Visible Learningplus symposiums or program implementations should contact Matt McCoy, Director of Business Strategy and Development.
