California Lutheran University has been chosen one of nine universities in the United States to serve as host to a Fulbright scholar-in-residence during the 1989-90 academic year, officials of the Thousand Oaks school have announced.
Torgrim Gjesme, a Norwegian psychologist specializing in motivation, test anxiety and the concept of future time, will lecture at the university in the coming year. He is an associate professor of educational psychology at the University of Oslo and has published articles in international scholarly journals. He has also served as consulting psychologist to one of Norway's largest banking institutions.
The Fulbright scholarships are administered by the Council for International Exchange of Scholars in Washington. The scholar-in-residence program is designed to broaden the international dimension of academic programs at U.S. colleges, according to the council.
