Plenary Speakers

The Annual Clements-Foyster Lecture

The Clements-Foyster Invited Speaker is an annual award, established in honour of  the two founding members of MERGA in 1976/1977, Professor Ken Clements (then at Monash University), and John Foyster (then based at the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER)). The first Clements-Foyster lecture was given in 2005, by Professor David Clarke, and since then, each year one Australian, New Zealander or a member from the South East Asian rim countries, is invited to present the Annual Clements-Foyster Lecture.

The Tramsheds Function Centre has an Auditorium and two large meeting rooms (one of which will be used for registration/meals). In addition we will use break out rooms in the Library, Stone and railway buildings of the University of Tasmania (all on the Inveresk campus), the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery, and possibly the Hotel Grand Chancellor. Receptions will be held in other venues in the city with the Conference Dinner taking place in a space which will permit social distancing and dancing. The Accompanying Persons price of $120 is excellent value as it includes all receptions and the Conference Dinner (which is in excess of $100 per head on its own).

More information about the venue(s) will be made available as the program firms up.
