Call For Papers

The theme for the Visible Learning World Conference is: Improving Schools through Visible Learning Research, Practice and Impact Call for Papers

This is a general call for papers for the Visible Learning plus World Conference. Papers may be submitted in one of the following three categories: workshops, research paper sessions, and case studies. Presentations can either be 45 minutes or 90 minutes in length.

Each presentation should address the conference theme and at least one of the key strands of Visible Learning:
– Visible Learners
– Know thy impact
– Inspired and passionate teachers
– Feedback – The Visible Learning School

Presentation Formats
– Workshops
– Research Paper Sessions
– Case studies: Voices from the field
– Workshops

These interactive sessions encourage the exchange of information between session participants. Led by Visible Learning content experts, workshops will identify and discuss the most important messages from the Visible Learning research.

There will be three levels of workshops. These will be aimed at delegates who are:
– new to Visible Learning (beginner)
– beginning to engage in Visible Learning (intermediate)
– expert in Visible Learning practice (advanced)

Research Paper Sessions
This is a lecture presentation with a research or policy focus. Sessions should include:
– a description of the conceptual or theoretical perspective
– the research question(s) and design
– data collection techniques
– a summary of findings

The audience will have an opportunity to ask questions and comment at the end. Discussions can be facilitated to allow early feedback on the presenter’s research or begin to frame new research directions.

Case studies: (Voices from the Field)
These sessions are led by practitioners who have been actively using the Visible Learning research strands in their schools, organisations or schooling systems. These presentations may be given by groups from schools or individuals and will involve sharing the Visible Learning journey the presenter has undertaken thus far. In these sessions, participants will hear about examples, models, and pragmatic suggestions from the presenters.
