Business librarian Lee Pasackow spent six weeks (April 24–June 2) in the Netherlands on a Fulbright Specialist grant at Maastricht University (UM), a BBA Program partner school, where she worked on a collaborative project to improve research instruction. While auditing a number of UM classes, Pasackow observed the school’s instructional technique—“problem-based learning”—and evaluated it for use in Goizueta Business Library’s instruction programs. She was impressed with the caliber of UM’s students, which she witnessed firsthand at finance and entrepreneurial conferences organized by student clubs. Pasackow hopes the Goizueta-Maastricht partnership will expand, noting that UM is an ideal environment for in-depth learning about the European Union.
Sponsored by the US Department of State, the Fulbright Program provides funding for students, scholars, teachers, and professionals to undertake graduate study, advanced research, university teaching, and teaching at elementary and secondary schools. This is the second Fulbright Specialist grant Pasackow has received.
