Visit by Chinese Educationists to ANME

On 14th June a Chinese delegation of eighteen lecturers, education administrators and university professors visited ANME. They were from Beifang University in the far North West of China and were visiting Australian educational institutions pursuing their interest in Innovative Quality Education and Teaching. They expressed a desire to visit ANME as an example of the important role education museums have in the social education of students. Their visit had been arranged through the Australian Technical Experts Network (ATEN).

The ANME Director, Dr Malcolm Beazley welcomed the group and outlined the scope of the ANME, its functions and activities. The delegation was accompanied by an interpreter. Refreshments were provided to the group prior to a tour of ANME’s Repository, Museum Display Room and our Gallery Museum Display. The delegation was then taken across to the Inspire Centre where Professor Robert Fitzgerald addressed them on the purposes and innovative activities of his Centre prior to giving them a conducted tour of the facilities of the Inspire Centre.
