 About Me

 SHSS/B.A. '2011


I graduated from Khazar University School of Humanities and Social Sciences in 2011.  While getting my bachelor degree at Khazar University (KU), I received a tremendous amount of support from the community of Khazar University. During my undergraduate years I have participated in many different projects, seminars and programs. For instance, DAAD, Erasmus Mundus. I was one of the coordinators of these projects. DAAD program aim was to host German students at Khazar University, in Azerbaijan, for their summer program on oil and gas field. My primary duties were organizing classes, schedules and field trips.

At Khazar University, I did develop strong communication skills that helped me to get the maximum benefit from an educational system. I got the skills that I need to advance in my professional career.

I received my MS.Ed in the Adult Education and Human Resource Development (AHRD) Program at James Madison University, Harrisonburg, VA, USA. This program is a very unique program that exists only in some schools. It is a merge between higher education studies and the field human resources. In this program, we emphasize the use of technological approaches in higher education and learning theories. I am honored to be doing research in the field of AHRD. I did research on several topics such as "Mobile Devices Effect on MOOC-Massive Open Online Course", "Learning Management System" and "Diversity". In my thesis work, I am studying "The Effect of Cross-Cultural Differences on Team Performance". I graduated in May, 2016.
