Impressions form the ECER-VETNET sessions in Dublin, August 23-25, 2016. Pending ratification by the EERA Council, Ludger Deitmer was awarded the Honorary Network Membership by VETNET itself for his sustained, unique and visible contribution to the Network. Congrats, and well-deserved. (I have to check the camera settings, as I find most pictures not 100% focused – apologies).

On August 24 VETNET organised a lively panel discussion on Dual systems of Vocational Education in various European countries. I had prepared a PPT for this panel, but it was not needed to present PPTs. So, I used it as background. For interested VET colleagues, I have placed the PPT here: 160824 ECER Dublin Dual Education
On August 23 the opening session of VETNET at the ECER conference in Dublin took place where I gave a presentation on Distinct Contributions of Educational Researchers in VETNET. The PPT of this presentation can be downloaded from here. Share your reactions at email@example.com. Enjoy.

Preparing for the VETNET opening session at the ECER conference in, Dublin, August 23, 2016, I am already posting the list of key terms used in session titles during the VETNET programs during 2006 to 2016.
