Principles of networked learning inform the design of the EAP Fellowship program. This model is intended to promote inquiry-based learning that is both empowering and flexible, as it adjusts and aligns to address each Fellow’s specific aims. Fellows should be self-starters, interested in building cross-sector relationships and willing to take an active role in the learning process. From the start, Fellows will work with EAP Leadership to identify specific learning goals and methods for achieving those goals. Milestones, collective expectations and personal benchmarks will then be developed collaboratively.
Leadership members will support Fellows by connecting them to ideas, materials, expertise and human resources (e.g., speakers, mentors and/or consultants). They will also coordinate individual goal setting and project timelines, moderate discussions, facilitate problem-solving sessions and supply overall guidance throughout the program.
