Making Learning Visible with Doug Fisher: Developing Assessment-Capable Learners

Dr. Fisher conducts visible learning research with Drs. Nancy Frey and John Hattie. He sums up the essence of visible learning as, “…knowing that you have an impact on students’ learning. It’s about figuring out what that impact is and monitoring that impact so that you know you are making a difference. Visible learning makes the learning process obvious, clear, and notable for you as the teacher as well as for your students.”

During his keynote and follow-up session, he will guide us through:

  • How to apply the principles of Visible Learning research
  • The most effective types of assessment and how each can motivate students to higher levels of achievement
  • How to use the right approach at the right time and intentionally design classroom learning experiences -  surface, deep, and transfer of learning.
  • Creating a classroom culture where errors are viewed as opportunities to learn
  • The learning strategies that fuel student progress with real world examples of strategies and tools at work
  • Practices that have the greatest and least impact on student growth


Frey, Hattie and Fisher’s new book – Developing Assessment-Capable Learners is an excellent resource for anyone attending the conference.
