ORD 2017 – Meeting successor in Old Town Hall in Antwerp

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.

ORD Antwerp: a great place to say goodbye to NERA

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.

Portret in Opleiding & Ontwikkeling – dank Dr. Ton Bruining

Vanaf het begin van het vakblad Opleiding & Ontwikkeling had ik het genoegen lid te zijn van de redactiecommissie. Dat heb ik circa tien jaar volgehouden en in die periode mocht ik een groot aantal artikelen publiceren in het blad. Sinds mijn benoeming als hoogleraar Onderwijskunde in Wageningen ging ik me meer bezig houden met fundamenteel onderzoek en onderzoeksbestuur, – beleid en -management. Ik stel het zeer op prijs dat Dr. Ton Bruining ter gelegenheid van mijn afscheid als hoogleraar een portret van mij heeft opgesteld. Dank ook Drs. Peter Schramade en Dr. Marcel van der Klink voor de mooie woorden. Mijn ondernemerszin is me goed van pas gekomen als hoofd van een bloeiende leerstoelgroep en het onderzoek naar nieuwe onderwijsinhouden is geëvolueerd in de richting van competenties voor de toekomst. Zie daarvoor mijn afscheidsrede. Download de tekst van het portret hier: OnO_17_01_Competenties voor het leven
