Tim Goodier from King's College London is the winner for the 2014 British Council Master's Dissertation Award, with Best Potential for Impact on the ELT Industry. Alongside the winner were special commendations to Santi Budi Lestari from the University of Warwick, Cathryn Tolon from the University of Sussex and Sanghoon Mun from the University of Bath. Find out more and read the dissertations on the EnglishAgenda web pages.

This year's competition has been extremely impressive with research into English Language Teaching themes such as CEFR statements, linguistic diversity and online gaming for English language learning, covering a wide range of contexts such as Belarus, Poland, Rwanda and Brazil.

For the last three years, the British Council has partnered with UK universities to find the best ELT Master's dissertations. The scheme, where universities submit the best dissertation from their ELT Master's programmes and then judge them along with a panel of British Council experts, is designed to recognise and celebrate the brightest minds in ELT at Master's level.
