ACT Currie Lecture Event Report

The annual ACT Currie Lecture highlights recent developments in education locally, nationally and internationally. This year’s lecture was presented on Thursday 31st March 2016 by Emeritus Professor Tony Shaddock. It is traditionally held at the Great Hall of University House at the Australian National University.

In the 2016 Sir George Currie lecture, Professor Shaddock addressed issues faced by schools and teachers in responding to student diversity, irrespective of the cause. He spoke of the tensions within and among current policies including inclusive practice, personalised learning, funding formulae and national reporting of student achievement.

This annual event is also an opportunity to recognise and award excellence in the ACT education profession. Four ACT Fellowships were awarded this year as well as two university excellence awards.

This year we were privileged to have four ACEL National Board Directors travel to Canberra to support the evening which was also attended by 150 committed education leaders from the ACT.
