  1. Hi Renee,

    What a fabulous post!  I love how you have captured the awe, the journey, the wonder and the MAGIC of the e-fellowship.  What an honour to be part of the e-fellowship!  I have thoroughly enjoyed following the journey of the 2014 e-fellows.  To anyone out there thinking of applying, go for it!  It is a transformational experience!

    Thanks Anne,

    It really has been magic. I can't wait to see what these guys go on to do for New Zealand's tamariki. Credit must also go to John and Louise for facilitating the transformation process, and letting me lurk in the background :)

    Totally agree with Anne – great to read your 'lurker' views and the photos also paint a vivid picture of the incredible passion of e-fellows.

    Thank you, Renee.  We have enjoyed having you lurking in the background this year and it is quite moving to see what you took from that time.  

    It is the most mind blowing, life changing, eye opening and philosophically challenging experience I have had bar none! 

    Louise and John have encouraged me, supported me in my doubtful moments, celebrated my successes and been there whenever I have needed them.  They have both challenged some long held beliefs and practices in all aspects of my educational ideology.  For that, I cannot thank them enough! 

    My fellow efellows have been a blast.  We have had innumerable laughs, have almost as many inside jokes and stories, agonised together, challenged each other, learned from each other, and now mourn the loss of this amazing programme together.  We would have loved to be able to do this again next year!  

    We do, however, celebrate the networks, the learning and the worlds opening up to us as a result of the programme.  None of us are finished the work we have done and all of us fully intend to take on our next steps.  We have our own community to call for help, ideas, feedback and challenge with regard to our thinking. Watch out for us at Ulearn15 as we intend to present again – one year on.

    I will miss catching up with you on such a regular basis as you lurk somewhere in the background – taking in far more than we could have imagined.  This post, stumbled upon just post-fellowship14, brought a tear to my eye! Again, thank you!

  5. Fantastic blog post Renee :-)  

    Next year's blog post can you call it – The fellowship of the "e" hehe.

    Great to have met the eFellows this year.  Go well in your learning journeys!
