Quotes from the 2017 EEM Fellows

“This has been one of the most fun and influential things I have done. It was great to see how this event comes together. It was cool to see people who I learn from constantly through their online FOAMed and other learning tools. As someone interested in FOAMed and online education, it was a real motivator to try and figure out my niche and my career goals.” -Moises Gallegos

“This has genuinely been a once in a lifetime opportunity. I forged numerous great friendships and was able to engage with a number of world renowned faculty. I really feel that being a Fellow has opened up so many doors for me. Check back with all of us in a couple of years and I’m sure that all of the Fellows will tell you that great accomplishments were able to be achieved solely because of this amazing opportunity.” –Sameer Sharif
