What ELI Fellows Say About Their Experience
- "This has truly been one of the most rewarding experiences that I have ever participated in. I continue to reflect on, and learn from, all of the online modules, on-site meetings, and discussion boards."
- "An amazing amount of content was covered and I'm not sure how someone could possibly function as a department chair without knowing this content."
- "It was such a valuable experience. I think many of us fell into the job and were figuring it out as we went along. This program provided the tools to guide us. Many of the things we covered helped me understand some of my responsibilities better."
- "ELI has helped me to become a more knowledgeable and confident leader and I would love see other PTA Educators have the same opportunity. The networking opportunities have been invaluable and our "class" was a safe environment to learn and grow."
- "ELI can change how an experienced administrator does their job or shape how a new administrator can do their job well!"
- "The experience that I have had with ELI has been invaluable to me as an emerging leader of a DPT Program. The ELI fellowship program has not only provided me the information, educational experience, and support to become an effective and efficient leader at my university, but also instilled a passion to continue the drive toward excellence in professional education."
