On 12th May, 2018 Michael Radin, an associate professor at Rochester Institute of Technology (USA), held a guest lecture in Management College on 




Michael Radin is an associate professor of mathematics at Rochester Institute of Technology. Teaching courses and conducting seminars at Liepaja University, Riga Technical University, Riga Stradina University and Transport and Telecommunication Institute has been a challenging but very rewarding cultural learning experience for Michael during the last 3 years. Michael taught Introduction to Discrete Mathematics at Transport and Telecommunication Institute, Introduction to Photography at Liepaja University, and a graduate level course on “Applications of Difference Equations in Robotics” at Riga Technical University Department of Artificial Intelligence and Systems Engineering. These courses were taught as applied hands-on courses.


In addition to teaching these courses, Michael had the opportunities to conduct a hands-on seminar on “Establishing and Developing International and Interdisciplinary Research Coalitions” at Riga Technical University Doctoral School. Furthermore, Michael recently conducted a “Risk Management Seminar” at Riga Technical University Department of Engineering Economics.


After teaching these courses and conducting these seminars, Michael recently published two papers on international pedagogy: university level teaching styles with high school students and international teaching and learning; effective pedagogical management as a road to successful international teaching and learning. Michael also presented these topics as a plenary speaker at several regional and international pedagogical conferences.


Moreover, Michael was invited to Management College to conduct a seminar on “Developing Successful Management and Leadership” that analyzed and discussed for what reasons management and leadership fail, how to learn from mistakes and failure and how to stay ahead of competitors. This was the first time that Michael conducted such a seminar and did not expect many very active and enthusiastic participants. The participants gave very specific answers to questions that Michael did not expect, which were certainly a very pleasant surprise for him. In addition, the participants kept Michael’s enthusiasm brightly lit throughout his presentation. Furthermore, this was a positive cross-cultural learning experience for Michael as well since the participants shared about similar economics’ circumstances in Latvia compared to the U.S. This was certainly a new discovery and learning experience for Michael about the Latvian educational system and about Latvian economy.
