The e-Learning fellowships were launched in 2003 by the Ministry of Education. Annually, up to ten teachers are released from the classroom to conduct an e-learning research project.
Teachers are chosen from early childhood, primary and secondary sectors.
CORE Education provides e-fellows with academic support and mentoring including professional learning workshops for two weeks each term and participation in an online learning community.
The fellowship recognises those teachers who are already leaders in utilising e-learning in their schools and enables them to have professional development in this area to further their understanding and share their knowledge.
E-Learning fellows have presented and disseminated their research findings at conferences such as LearningatSchool (Rotorua), Navcon (Christchurch and Bendigo, Australia), ULearn (Auckland and Christchurch), TUANZ tours and Microsoft Innovative Educators (Singapore and Korea) since 2004.
You can read reports from each year of the eLearning fellowship scheme from 2004 to 2009 in our Research reports section.
