“The fellowship has been a great journey – 6 months goes by so fast! I enjoyed our meetings and getting to know other co-fellows. The knowledge and experience shared by Doris, my mentor, and co-fellows was extraordinary and truly valuable in equipping me with the skills to be able to develop my training.”

“I had a lot of fun during this fellowship. The guest presenters were wonderful. I really enjoyed the weekly meetings with my mentor, Alyssa Azhari, where we went over upcoming assignments and strategies for designing a compelling e-learning product.”

“It’s amazing for me to look at the quick-learn I developed and to be able to say ‘Wow, I did that,’ considering where I started (both skills and quick-learn content-wise). I am very proud of what I created and am actively looking for more opportunities to continue practicing these skills.”

“My best memory of the fellowship will likely always be how wonderful the mentors, including Doris, were. Everyone was truly interested in my success and as a result, was just extremely responsive and helpful. Not only did I learn so much about instructional design, but I discovered that I really like it more than I knew.”
