HITS! High Impact Teaching Strategies

30th August 2023
ONLINE via Zoom Webinar

Please note* due to unforeseen circumstances, the webinar will begin at 10:00am (AEST: QLD)


‘High impact teaching strategies (HITS) are a bank of 10 instructional practices that are internationally recognised as some of the most reliable teaching strategies for delivering learning outcomes.’ VCAA.

In this session we will explore what the ten high impact strategies are and the research that underpins them.

We will then focus on three of these high impact strategies and dig deeper into them.

1.   Metacognition - where educators can build learners thinking skills.
2.  Collaborative learning - where educators can activate effective group work.
3.  Questioning - where educators can apply high impact questioning techniques.

You will be invited to apply HITS to your teaching practice and devise suitable learning activities for your class.

This highly interactive webinar will be fun - collaborate with other educators and take home a tool kit of activities to trial – because it’s fun when you learn!
