During the ORD 2017 in Antwerp I met my successor, Prof. Perry den Brok, who is currently working at the Technical University Eindhoven. I am very pleased that Perry was interested in this position and that the Board of Wageningen University has appointed him. A significant detail: I had nothing to do with this appointment, so the news came to me as a pleasant surprise. Thanks Dr. Piety Runhaar for capturing this historic moment.
At the Educational Research Days (ORD) of the Netherlands Educational Research Association (VOR, or NERA in English) and the Flemish Forum for Educational Research (VFO) in Antwerp: what a great place to say goodbye to the colleagues of the Board of the VOR and remember that the first ORD I visited as Master student was in Maastricht in 1980. Now, after having chaired two VOR Division boards, having served as VOR secretary, and having organized various VOR and Division conferences, it is time to be grateful to all colleagues with whom I had the privilige to work with. It was always a pleasure.
Today I have uploaded the PPT of my keynote speech at the Bibb in Bonn. It can be downloaded from the Meetings page of this site. It was a pleasure and honour to give the talk. Enjoy.
