About Us

Visible Learningplus is a professional development program for teachers, school and system leaders that explores how evidence can be used to create innovation in the learning environment. Our work is focused on Professor John Hattie’s research and the principles of visible learning and visible teaching. This outstanding research involved millions of students and represents the largest ever evidence-based research into what actually works best in schools to improve learning.

Visible Learningplus is maintained by the Visible Learning Partnership, a collaboration between Professor John Hattie and Cognition Education Group.

Professor John Hattie is a global authority on education effectiveness. His areas of interest are measurement models and their applications to educational problems, and models of teaching and learning. He has published and presented over 950 papers, supervised more than 195 theses students, and released 26 books and counting – including eight on Visible Learning.
