St Margaret's Trends in Education seminars aim to address a significant current educational topic, delivered by an expert in the area of focus. The next seminar will focus on "Explicit Instruction" and will be presented by Associate Professor Lorraine Hammond

The human brain is easily overwhelmed when learning something new, and Explicit Instruction is an instructional approach that is clear, systematic and does not leave students to construct or discover information without any guidance (Hammond, 2019). In simple terms, this means including particular strategies that increase student participation and starting lessons with a learning objective that signals to students that what they are about to learn will be fully explained and demonstrated.
In this session, Dr Lorraine Hammond AM, an Associate Professor at Edith Cowan University and Professional Learning and Instructional Coaching Consultant to the Kimberley Schools Project in the north of WA and Catalyst, in the Catholic Diocese of Canberra-Goulburn, will share her research and practical knowledge about Explicit Instruction. Dr Hammond will define Explicit Instruction, share data from primary and secondary schools who have taken on this teacher-led approach as a ‘signature pedagogy’ and show video examples of teachers to demonstrate the salient features of this instructional model. Dr Hammond is the Chair, Deputy Chair and Independent Public School Board Member of three high performing schools in Western Australia and works with teachers across Australia to implement evidence-aligned practice.
