Late in Term 2 (2013) Michael Winter (CORE Education) flew up from Christchurch to talk to the Wellington Loop about the CORE eFellowships. These awards are available to any educator in New Zealand.
eFellows complete teacher inquiry and present on their research. This can be in the EdGazette or presenting at a conference like ULearn. The focus of the research should be teaching and learning, despite the ‘e’ in the title of the fellowship.
Previous recipients have been Paula Eskett and Anne Keneally. Paula used the year to examine the effect of apps on student engagement. Anne researched the effect of student-led learning.
Additional details can be found on the CORE Education website. 2014 eFellowship applications close on 13 September.
