About the award
British Council Master Dissertation Award with Best Potential for Impact on ELT
The Judging Process
Strong and sharply focused. Despite its small scale, the study has clear potential for impact on policy and practice across British HE in relation to provision for international students, and these implications are carefully argued. The study deserves wider dissemination.
An excellent demonstration of her own central thesis, showing subtle criticality, authoritative argumentation and with rich data well mined. Likely to have a strong positive impact.
Full of trenchant and timely messages to Western Academics, and carrying the potential to open up a much-needed debate about critical thinking.
Well motivated, and provides clear evidence of the advantages of asynchronous online study for teacher development, and details of how pre-CELTA course participants benefit from it.
Addressed a pertinent issue in language teaching and offered useful pedagogical solutions and insights for teacher training as well as for online learning and teaching. The quality of research carried out was also very high.
This was an interesting study and I think ways of developing language awareness in pre-service teachers are to be applauded. The course described was interesting and is a model which could be developed outside of this one.
