Presented by Michael McDowell

We strive to empower our students to lead their own inquiry, discover knowledge, and construct approaches to solving real-life challenges.

Essentially, “knowing thy impact” means connecting what educators do with what happens to learners. In this webinar, Professor John Hattie will discuss why it's important to “know thy impact” and how to implement a cycle of inquiry, evaluation, and implementation into your school.

Join leadership author, consultant, and coach Peter DeWitt as he uses a unique case study approach to guide participants through the coaching process.
