Double success

It seems that hapiness loves company as well.


I am exhilarated to announce that my proposal has been selected for the first Julie Johnson Kidd Travel Research Fellowship. The award is aimed at strengthening the mobility of liberal arts faculty in Europe. The first edition has already been competitive, and I am extremely proud to be selected by experienced colleagues in consortium of European Colleges of Liberal Arts and Sciences (ECOLAS).

I have also been selected to attend “Putting “Big Ideas” into Practice: Developing Soft Skills for Large Systems Change” train-the-trainer course in October at Wageningen University. The program has been supported by the EU and organized by Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education under the name TransFormation.doc

More information (in Polish) is available here.

I express my gratitude to ECOLAS for their much needed initiative, and to Polish HE ministry for including me in their program. Both opportunities would supplement my professional development as a young scholar, teacher and (one day) a policymaker. I will do my best to represent emerging teachers and work hard to make the most of this double investment for the common good of the future of higher education.

Thank you Boston College!

DPK_6698Yesterday was my last day as a visiting scholar in Boston College Lynch School of Education. It was a great time, and I would like to thank everyone at Center for International Higher Education for making me feel so welcome over last three months. It was the first time that I spend my summer this way, but I absolutely love it. I wish I could stay longer!

During my time at CIHE, I worked on numerous projects, that will announce itself through my website in the following months. It was a really productive time, thanks to brilliant working conditions and the helpfulness of Kara, Phil, Laura, Georgiana, Ivan, Hans and Mark. I really owe you.

My stay at CIHE was financially supported by the University of Warsaw. I would like to thank dr hab. Marta Bucholc, prof. Marta Kicinska-Habior and Fundacja ‘Universitatis Varsoviensis’ as well as Institute of Sociology for their dedication to make it happen. You have my deepest gratitude.
