Career Summary

Biography

Emeritus Professor Phil Foreman has an extensive publication record in intellectual disability, with research grants totalling over $390,000 since 2000. He was Director of the University of Newcastle Special Education Centre from 1986-1999. During this time the Centre developed a significant research profile, supported by a number of major research grants. He is a member of the Centre for Special Education and Disability Studies at the University of Newcastle. He was instrumental in the development of the link between the University of Newcastle and the Royal Institute for Deaf & Blind Children, which led to the establishment of the Renwick Centre, a research centre in the education of students with a sensory disability. This link led to Professor Foreman’s previous ARC Linkage grant. The sixth edition of his edited text-book, Inclusion in Action, was published in 2014. The book has been set as a text on over 20 university campuses in Australia and New Zealand. His single-authored book, Education of Students with an Intellectual Disability: Research and Practice, was published in 2009. Professor Foreman’s research profile has been combined with a significant administrative load for over 20 years. He was Director of the University’s Special Education Centre for 14 years, and for four of those years was also Dean of Students. He was then Dean of Education for six years until 2008, and was Chair of the NSW Institute of Teachers from 2007-13. In January 2013 he became a Member of the Order of Australia.

Research expertise

Extensive publication record in the area of the education of students with a disability, having received research grants totalling well over $500,000 in the last 10 years. In 1999, led research team that developed an instrument to assess the support needs of students with a disability in regular classes. The instrument was used by the Department of Education and Training to allocate over $30m to regular schools, to support integrated students. Has also collaborated extensively with Dr Ian Dempsey on research related to the enrolment of students with disabilities in regular classes. Instrumental in the development of the link between the University of Newcastle and the Royal Institute for Deaf & Blind Children, which led to the establishment of the Renwick Research Centre. This led to previous SPIRT grant with highly successful outcomes. Has worked closely with Dr Michael Arthur-Kelly on research into the effective education of students with multiple and severe disabilities. In recent collaborative research between the NSW DET and The University of Newcastle, Foreman and Arthur-Kelly identified important differences between students with multiple and severe disabilities enrolled in segregated and inclusive settings which form basis of current research program.
