Simon described himself as traveller, writer, chef and full time friend. Many in the ELT community knew Simon through his publishing activities, his Presidency of IATEFL, his engagement with global issues in ELT, hIs training activities in many countries, and his friendship.
You probably know of Simon’s deep commitment to bringing people together through learning, particularly learning English
Award in Simon’s memory: This is the basis for an award in Simon’s memory, sponsored by three partners, Macmillan Education, International House World Organisation and International House London, with whom Simon was deeply connected.
If you have a local language project which brings people together through learning English you could be interested in this award. Illustrative examples of such projects might be:
Designing materials in an area which lacks resources
Planning an educational radio series
Running a creative writing project with output that could be used in classes
Starting a drama or extensive reading group
The prize aims to help and support the project, and includes publicity, mentoring, funding and speaking about it at an international conference. The precise mix will depend on the nature and needs of the project.
