Designed to develop a cycle of inquiry and knowledge-building into your school professional learning process, the Foundation Series will help you focus your time, energy, and resources on what is having the greatest impact on your students' learning.
During this series of three professional learning series, you will engage with the high-impact practices from the Visible Learning research and learn how to collect evidence of the extent to which these practices are present in your school or classroom. You will then collect data from within your school or classroom for 60 days and create an action plan for your first impact cycle.
During the School Impact Process, leaders and teachers all take the Foundation Day professional learning session as the beginning of their Visible Learning journey. Leaders then take Evidence Into Action 1 & 2 to develop a school or systemwide impact cycle, while teachers take Visible Learning Into Action 1 & 2 to develop impact cycles in their own classrooms.
Leaders and teachers will examine the Visible Learning research and what makes a significant impact on student achievement.
