Professor Liesel Ebersöhn (Director of the Centre for the Study of Resilience, University of Pretoria) has been elected to a second four-year term as Secretary General for the World Education Research Association (WERA). The results of the election were returned by Dr. Ronald F. Abler, who served as the official teller for WERA.
Founded in 2009, WERA is an association of national, regional, international, and specialty research associations dedicated to advancing education research as a scientific and scholarly field. WERA’s initiatives are global in nature, transcending what any single association can accomplish in its own country, region, or area of specialization. This association of 25 national, regional, and international specialty research associations aims to advance education research as a scientific and scholarly field world-wide to serve the public good.
