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

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.
