ERF Awards at IATEFL 2015

For the four year in an row the ERF Awards are presented to the deserving winners at an evening ceremony at the IATEFL Annual Conference. Here’s the link to the British Council Manchester Online site with the video of the awards ceremony and talk by Catherine Walter. We had a very good crowd on the last night of the conference and the innovation of giving attendees a copy of one of the winning books was a great success.

Here is Catherine Walter’s handout with a bibliography of works she cited in her talk.

Thanks to IATEFL and the British Council for the support and making the event possible.

Below are the links to interviews  there are ones with two of the winners Nicola Prentis and Michael Austen available on the Manchester Online site.
