… an interdisciplinary program called The Erasmus Mundus Master of Excellence in Euroculture which he will complete this June. This two year program is based on mobility (consortium of 8 European and 4 Non-European universities of which he has attended 3 on 2 different continents) where developing research skills in the social sciences is paramount. Adam is currently doing research on the phenomenon of jointly-written history textbooks and the changing face of teaching history in an increasingly transnational world. 

 

Adam’s past teaching experiences span 3 continents and are as varied as the pupils he has had the pleasure to teach. He has taught American History at an American high school, Literature, reading/writing skills, World History, and various academic skills at a private school in Seoul, South Korea for 3 plus years. At this school he was also involved in research and development of a fully tablet based curriculum, one of the first of its kind. Adam has also been a full-time supply teacher at Asia Pacific International School, giving him a wide range of extra experience across an array of subjects.

 

Adam’s current interests include learning about how technology can help pupils reach a state of flow, the place where learning happens. In other words make it easy for pupils to cut out the time it takes to get organized and start learning. He is involved with an education start-up here in Kraków and also hopes to start his own project soon.

 

In his free time Adam enjoys being active, all kinds of sports but is currently playing ultimate frisbee, basketball and also enjoy jogging. On long weekends he enjoys going hiking and unplugging for a bit to recharge his batteries. Of particular note, he is also interested in video production, design, reading anything he can get his hands on, but especially nonfiction books. 

 

In Adam’s own words;

“My mission is to help people, pupils in particular, to become the best versions of themselves. As humans, we are born with a unique mix of talents that are filtered through the environment and culture which we inhabit. Most of all, I hope to help pupils become confident individuals that are self-aware and understand the world and their role in it. Also, I hope to teach pupils not only about the humanities and social sciences and all of the topics that come with the subject matter, but also skills and abilities they may apply to whatever challenges life may throw at them in the future. 

 

I look forward to working with all of you and building a better school for the local and international community.”
