2014 IATEFL Projects Award

2014 Winner - English Language Teachers’ Association of India (ELTAI)

“Training the trainers in virtual learning”


An IATEFL Projects Award was granted to ELTAI in 2014 to fund a two day workshop in which 17 teachers of English would receive training in how to incorporate the use of technology in their teaching.


The sessions covered:

  • Virtual and Flipped classrooms

  • Mobile learning

  • Google Drive

  • Social Networking

  • Blogging

  • Google and Yahoo groups


Active chapters of ELTAI were asked to nominate a member to receive the training. This member then cascaded the learning to their chapter within 3 months of the original workshop and small grants were available to undertake this.

Training Manuals to support this learning were prepared in respect of the technology tools selected.



“The grant from IATEFL has helped us to empower a large number of our members with new skills in using internet tools in ELT. It will naturally result in the enhancement of learning in their classrooms. It has also made it possible for us to have a face-to-face meeting with our members working in different regions in our country. Since this project, ELTAI has witnessed a remarkable increase in enrolment of new members”

S. Rajagopalan (Head of ELTAI Project)
