What did the Innovation Fellows (2018-2019) think about the program?

“Multifaceted. My overall program experience is filled with many different emotions,

aspects, and features. Therefore, I would describe it as multifaceted.”

“Учир утгатай. Учир нь шинэ зүйлсийг суран, өөрийн мэддэг ч үгүй байсан

чанаруудаа анзаарч, юуг илүү анхаарах ёстойг ойлгосон. Хүүхдүүдэд мэдлэг түгээн,

шинэ ертөнцтэй танилцсан 8 сар байлаа.”

“Enlightening. There were so many things I have learned. I think I improved a lot and

became a different person because of this program.”

““Бороо” гэмээр ч юм уу, зуны шатам халуун өдрүүдэд гол нуурын ус бага багаар

ууршиж борооны үүлэн дэх дуслууд хангалттай болсон үедээ газарт бууж хэсэг

газрыг нойтон, сэрүүхэн болгодог шүү дээ. Тэрэн шиг олон сарын турш бусдад

хэрэгтэй, өөрсдийгөө ч хөгжүүлэх зүйлс хийхийн тулд 15 маань олон чадваруудыг

эзэмшиж, тэрийгээ дүү нартаа зааж, чадваруудаа ашиглаад ном гаргаж, төсөл

хэрэгжүүлсэн.”

“Rewarding. You feel rewarded after hard work and dedication. I was able to learn so

much and expanded my view on certain things. I was able to finish the program with

a new understanding of our century and also teaching in itself. Overall, there were difficult

patches and bumps along the road, but in the end, we were able to overcome it

and reach our goal, so that is why my experience was rewarding.”

“Үнэлэгдэшгүй. Энэ их хугацаанд их зүйл үзлээ, их зүйл сурлаа. Хүнээс авж үзээгүй

урам зоригийг авч, хүнд их урам зориг өгч, … хичээж зүтгэж, айдсаа туулж, зориг

гаргаж, айж түгшиж, хийж бүтээж, олон сайхан нөхөдтэй танилцуулж,
