It's me, your instructor:
Justyna Giezynska


International education has been my passion for the last 17 years. For the last 9 years, I have been working directly with university staff as a trainer and training facilitator.

I graduated from the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University in Washington, DC (MA) and University of California, Santa Cruz (BA in Cultural Anthropology), both in the USA.

Apart from Poland and USA, I lived in Italy and Hungary - I spent abroad about 13 years.

I currently coordinate two multi-member Erasmus+ Strategic Partnerships related to internationalisation of teaching and learning as Intercultural Classroom is now in my focus.
