AIAEE and AERA/WERA conferences were good

The conferences of the Association of International Agricultural and Extension Education in Portland, Oregon, and the American Educational Research Association (which celebrated its Centennial), combined with the World Education Research Assocation (WERA) in Washington, DC, were good. The AERA/WERA conference counted around 15,000 participants. The WERA has networks, one of which is the International Research Network Vocational Education and Training (IRN-VET). I gave my presentation in that Network to further establish the relationship between VETNET of the European Educational Research Association and IRN-VET, as I believe that Vocational Education and Training Research needs more attention.
