The motivation and learning discipline continues to be at the center of many key developments in the field of educational research. In this retrospective and prospective session, luminaries of the discipline in Australia and internationally will discuss the past, present, and future of the discipline. The session, which will inhabit a symposium slot for timetabling purposes, will run in a Q and A type format, facilitated by the SIG convenors, who will invite audience participation through questions and discussion with the key scholars. The discussion promises to be lively, informative, and entertaining, and not to be missed by all those involved in motivation and learning research.
