Providing Deep Learning Experiences to Students

A Conversation With John Hattie

FREE EVENT | View On Demand


Join John Hattie, professor and researcher at the University of Melbourne, and Peter DeWitt for “A Seat at the Table.” The conversation will focus on how educators can use Hattie’s research to provide deep learning experiences for students in spite of the challenges brought on by COVID-19. We will explore Hattie’s often-criticized research and discuss how he uses those criticisms to help guide his own level of improvement and clarity.
