During the introductions of my guest lectures at ULL (Universidad de La Laguna), there are a set of items that I share before jumping into the topic of lecture. Over the course of the next several days, each post will describe one of these items. The reason I share these items is because people want to know who I am, where I am from, why I am here, and what I am doing.
Today’s item is “A Senior Scholar from Texas”.
In the past, I thought the title “Senior Scholar” was an esteemed term, now I’m thinking it just means “You’re old!” (smile)
Okay…seriously, what is this Senior Fulbright Scholar term all about?
The Fulbright program is bi-national program between governments of the USA and Spain (along with a host of other nations). Spain and ULL have a goal to broaden its influence and collaboration internationally.The Senior Scholar program is for professors and leaders “advanced” in their careers. What does this mean for me? Why was I awarded the privilege and opportunity to collaborate with you fine professors and university?
I am a…
Scientist, in organizational leadership and employee development (behavioral scientist focused on people in organizations).
Professor, with experience in pedagogical innovation and cross-boarder projects.
Practitioner (leader), in…strategic planning, organizational culture, quality improvement, etc.
Consultant, as an internal and external consultant in organizational development
It is an honor to be part of the global Fulbright community of scholars, to represent my country and home university (Concordia University Texas), and to partner with
Universidad de La Laguna leaders and the Fulbright Spain Commission in this endeavor at ULL.
