Average: 4.4 (9 votes)

As with recent years, the British Council invited a number of ELT bloggers interested in reporting on the annual IATEFL conference to become a 'Harrogate Online Registered Blogger'. Over 40 bloggers signed up and did a fantastic job of reviewing and commenting on the conference.

As many of you know, TeachingEnglish has a featured blog of the month award. For April, we also have an additional award for the best blog coverage of IATEFL Harrogate online 2014.

Below is the winner, the shortlist, a selection of recommended posts and special mentions.

Winner: Reflections of an English language teacher - Lizzie Pinard

Congratulations to Lizzie, who provided insightful and extensive coverage of IATEFL online 2014. Each post gave a very clear overview of the session and a well-balanced personal reflection. Read their posts by going to the link above or click here


Blog-efl Graham Stanley

More great insight from Graham. Review and opinion on several of the recorded talks. Make sure you read Graham's excellent two-part post on Sugatra Mitra's controversial closing plenary. Also worth looking at is his own selection of the best blog posts from the conference.
