Dear all,

We hope everything is going well with you and would like to inform you about the news for this week.

  1. PEARSON ELT teacher awardpearson-elt-reward

Pearson ELT, Associate Member of Eaquals, has launched a new award to celebrate inspirational teachers. The global Award will showcase teachers who have implemented innovative ways of teaching in their classrooms leading to improved learning outcomes; from the big innovations to the everyday. Teachers everywhere are adopting new digital tools, implementing new ideas, and coming up with innovative solutions that improve outcomes for their learners. Entries will be judged by a panel of experts from within the ELT community who will be looking for examples of best practice and innovative approaches to improving learner outcomes. Five inspiring teachers will each win an all expenses paid trip to the forthcoming IATEFL or TESOL conferences where they will enjoy the opportunity to hear the latest theories and exchange ideas with fellow professionals from all sectors of ELT. In addition, a People’s Choice winner will be selected by a public vote from the entries submitted. The winner will receive 20 Kindles for their class pre-loaded with a selection of Pearson English Readers. Teachers can self submit entries or nominate colleagues for the award from now until 1 January 2017 via the Pearson ELT website. The winners will be announced on 25 January 2017. You can visit Pearson ELT for more information on the Pearson ELT Global Teacher Award.

If you are interested, don’t forget to apply by 1 January 2017.
