John Dawkins
Minister for Employment, Education and Training

In 1988 it was my pleasure to attend the last national conference of the Australian Society for Educational Technology, and I am delighted to renew our acquaintance in this way for the 1990 conference.

Development of the arts and sciences of educational technology forms an important part of our national educational endeavour. Innovations in educational media, computer based instruction, educational television, and educational telecommunications, especially those which explore their convergence, are essential if we wish to create a truly modern, effective, and cost efficient means of delivering high quality instruction.

I commend the work of the Australian Society for Educational Technology in fostering these innovations through activities such as the national conference and the ASET Awards Scheme, and wish the Society and its sponsors every success for your 1990 gathering in Sydney.
