A world-expert education research and author Professor John Hattie led a learning event at Les Quennevais School on Monday 13 March.

Professor Hattie’s research focuses on how we can measure and evaluate teaching and learning. He is best known for his Visible Learning study that brought together 50,000 smaller studies from around the world, covering over 80 million students.

The study concluded that the most important factor in effective teaching is the positive interactions between student and teacher. These interactions allow students to assess their own learning, and discuss what they needed to do to improve. The study found that positive teacher interaction outweighs other factors, including the students’ personal attributes, their home situation, and the school.

Professor Hattie is currently professor of education and director of the Melbourne Education Research Institute at the University of Melbourne, Australia. He was previously professor of education at the University of Auckland, the University of North Carolina Greensboro, and the University of Western Australia.

120 staff from Jersey attended the event, which included a keynote speech from Professor Hattie, and several workshops. The event was organised by Sarah Hague, Headteacher of Les Quennevais School, so that school leaders can focus on developing learning and teaching strategies, curriculum adaptation and learning plans to improve outcomes for all learners.

The event is one of several events Professor Hattie will attend in the UK.
