Areas of expertise
Marta Shaw is a lecturer in the Institute of Public Affairs at Jagiellonian University in Poland, and an Affiliate of the Jandris Center for Innovative Higher Education at the University of Minnesota. Her research is focused on international higher education policy, academic ethics and intercultural leadership in education.
Marta Shaw was born in Poland during the period of communism and trained as a philologist at one of the oldest universities in Europe, the Jagiellonian University in Krakow. After the fall of communism, she worked at one of the first private colleges in the country, and developed an interest in educational policy. After completing a program in hermeneutics at Bethel Seminary, she enrolled at the University of Minnesota and worked with top educational scholars in the field, doing research in places as far apart as Uganda and Ukraine. She then returned to Poland to work in the educational system in her home country. Most currently, she has been involved in a national effort to reform the model for training and licensing school principals. She enjoys working with Ed.D. students at Bethel because of their passion for real-world problems, which was what got her into the field and keeps her excited about educational research.
