 “我们不知道我们将会有怎样的影响力。”


 “今天颁发奖项的范围很广,这体现了英语教育部门的持续发展。”


英国文化委员会英语语言部门主管Anna Searle宣布了颁奖开始,本次颁奖将第一次涉及特殊教育英语(SEN)和医学英语。


她说:“颁奖范围的广泛显示了全英语语言部门的发展,同时也表彰了部门内所取得的成就。”


Lizzie Pinard获得了新写作人才麦克米伦教育奖,以表彰她硕士时期创新的六任务模块Compass。她告诉PIE新闻:“我觉得我也高端了一次,我的课程材料包括现在最优争议性的主题,这在社会上会引起争论,正是因为这样才这么有趣。”


师资源创新奖得主是Katie Quartano和Paul Shaw领导的“残疾人友好通道活动(Disabled Access Friendly Campaign)”,该活动义务为残疾人提供免费教师资源,并提升公众对行动不便人士的关注度。


Quartano表示:“我们希望学生能够提高情商,让学生们感觉到他们学到了实实在在的东西,而并不是只会做点一杯咖啡一类的小事。”


该活动网站已经覆盖了120个国家,她说道:“我们当初不知道我们究竟能够有怎样的影响力,我们当初也不会想到现在我们能发展的这样壮大,活动现在已经蔓延到了许多国家,我们十分骄傲,我们也要感谢英国文化委员会对活动做的推广。”


著名作家、诗人Michael Swan获得了终生成就奖,以表彰他对英语语言教学的成就。在一段视频剪辑中,他被表彰为“博学多才的行业专家”“令人敬畏的学者”和“单纯的常识”。

ELTons awards celebrate ELT innovation


The British Council held its twelfth annual ELTons in London on Thursday to celebrate excellence and diversity in English language teaching. Accolades were given in six categories including course innovation, teaching innovation, new talent in writing and digital innovation.


"We had no idea of the impact we would have"


“The diverse range of winning projects and products being recognised here today certainly highlights the continued and exciting growth of the sector”


Anna Searle, Director of English Language at the British Council opened the awards, which celebrate for the first time the fields of Special Educational Needs (SEN) in ELT and English in medicine.


“The diverse range of winning projects and products being recognised here today certainly highlights the continued and exciting growth of the sector as a whole, as well as the important achievements and advancements happening within it,” she said.


Lizzie Pinard won the The Macmillan Education Award for New Talent in Writing for Compass, a six-task module she created during her Masters course. “I think I have filled a tiny little niche,” she told the PIE News. Judges said her course material “includes current and controversial themes that will evoke real discussion, and is fun and engaging to use”.


The Innovation in Teacher Resources award went to The Disabled Access Friendly Campaign, a voluntary initiative led by Katie Quartano and Paul Shaw that produces free teaching materials to raise awareness of the issues faced by people with a mobility disability.

“We want students to be able to develop their emotional intelligence, and to leave the classroom feeling that they’ve learnt something more substantial than, say, how to order a coffee,” Quartano said.


“We had no idea of the impact we would have,” she said, adding that the Campaign’s website is receiving traffic from around 120 countries worldwide. “We had no idea that it would get this big, and we are so proud that this initiative came out of Greece, and so grateful to the British Council and to the judges for promoting it.”


Renowned writer and poet Michael Swan won the Lifetime Achievement Award last night for his contribution to the English language teaching. In a video montage, he was praised by professionals across the industry for his “sheer erudition”, “formidable intellect” and “plain, simple common sense”.
