I am an Associate Professor and Director at the Institute of Research on Adult Education and Knowledge Management at the Faculty of Education and Psychology of Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE), Hungary. Before joining ELTE, I was a Senior Lecturer and Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning at the Central European University, Hungary. As the lead faculty member of the Program for Excellence in Teaching in Higher Education for Doctoral Students, I taught courses in the field of teaching and learning in higher education and socialization of academics. I am also a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, UK, coordinator of the Higher Education Special Interest Group (SIG4) of the European Association for Research on Learning and Instruction (EARLI), and Board Member of EDEN Digital Learning Europe.
I am an enthusiast for teaching and mentoring in higher education, and enjoy facilitating discussion-based classes in the field of higher and adult education, organizational learning, knowledge and change management. As a mentor and academic developer, I work with novice teachers and researchers. I learn a lot from my colleagues and mentees, which keeps my skills fresh and opens up new horizons.
My research revolves around higher education, namely, universities as sites of organizational, workplace and collaborative learning; academic professionalism and teaching innovations; as well as mentoring. Exploring technology-use in teaching and learning underpins my research interests, as the thoughtful use of the digital learning space provides new educational opportunities and enables us to cross institutional and disciplinary boundaries.
