IELTS is now accepting applications for the 2018 IELTS Morgan Terry Memorial IATEFL Scholarship Award.
The aim of this award is to celebrate innovative practice in the teaching of IELTS. Applications are invited from teachers all over the world to submit creative, resourceful and innovative teaching ideas. Previous winners have come from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Turkey and the UK.
The award covers registration and attendance at IATEFL Brighton, United Kingdom in 2018. This includes travel, accommodation, a year’s IATEFL membership and registration for the TEASIG’s pre-IATEFL conference event.
Speaking at this year’s IATEFL in Glasgow, Savva Papandony – the winner of the award for 2017 – said: “I never intended to apply for the IATEFL Morgan Terry Scholarship Award. Other educators had seen the work being done in our free workshops, and urged me to enter. I never thought about winning, as I considered the IELTS workshops being run by our college as a natural extension of our remit. It was a pleasure to be at the IATEFL conference in Glasgow. Not only was the IATEFL conference a wonderful occasion to meet many of my peers from around the world, but it also offered a tremendous opportunity to learn new teaching methods and grow as an instructor. The experience was absolutely invaluable.”
The IELTS Morgan Terry Memorial IATEFL Scholarship Award is funded by the IELTS partners in memory of Morgan Terry, a dear colleague who made significant contributions to the work of IELTS until her untimely death in 2011.
