We are delighted to announce that Dr. Kris Hartley, Assistant Professor, APS, has been awarded a Fulbright U.S. Scholar Teaching Fellowship.
The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government. Kris’s fellowship funds a six-month residency at the Chiang Mai University (CMU) School of Public Policy in Thailand, where he will teach courses on public policy and smart cities. Now in its fourth year of operation, the CMU School of Public Policy is Thailand’s first such school and endeavors to push the frontiers of public policy knowledge through world-class research and rigorous instruction. Kris’s semester-long engagement with the School, to be undertaken in early 2020, will generate new connections and collaborative opportunities for EdUHK in a country that is rapidly developing but facing numerous policy challenges. Kris is eager to embark on this exciting opportunity and return to EdUHK with further insights about public policy to share in the classroom. Coming from a family of educators, Kris was a secondary school teacher for four years and has served as university faculty since 2015. His passion for education is evident not only in his enthusiastic classroom demeanor but also in his role as a mentor for aspiring policy professionals. Kris’s selection for the Fulbright U.S. Scholar teaching fellowship will deepen his expertise, providing an even richer classroom experience at EdUHK for years to come.
The award of the Fulbright U.S. Scholar Teaching Fellowship to Kris will help build on the MOU signed between the CMU and APS on October 19, 2017. APS looks forward to deepening academic and student mobility and expanding research collaboration between our two institutions.
