Welcome back to a new term with IES Lund. We have actually been working for more than a week and I have not yet met any students. Strange you might say but the reason is that I am currently writing this blog post in London, ON Canada where I am, as a part of the IES Canadian recruitment team. I arrived at Toronto on the 8th of January and spent my first week in there visiting and interviewing students from York University. Two days ago me and my principal colleague Ms Segerstedt drove to London and Western University and we are interviewing some really enthusiastic and well educated Canadian students from the Faculty of Education. Next year you will probably meet some of them in Lund as a part of the staff at IES Lund. Meanwhile in Lund, the rest of our wonderful staff is taking care of business. Ms Sundin has hosted our first host lecturer Dr. Kevin Fissum (a parent at IESL) who gave all the classes an introduction to nuclear physics. We are so grateful and hope that more parents will be willing to share their professional or personal passions and knowledge with us. The new building is coming along well. Right now it is mostly demolition work but soon the actual construction work will begin. Greetings from Canada!
