Given that you are reading a blog post about education research then there is a high probability that you are familiar with the work of John Hattie. You may not, however, be aware that Hattie’s latest book in the ‘Visible Learning’ series is out at the end of this month. In ‘Visible Learning and the Science of How We Learn’, Hattie joins forces with our very own Gregory Yates of the University of South Australia. Yates is a cognitive psychologist and certainly knows a great deal about the science of learning. He has written a number of joint papers with John Hattie. However, I have recently been reading a little gem of a paper that Greg Yates wrote back in 2005.
