The Innovation Awards ceremony 2003 took place at the Delfina Gallery in East London.

The guest speaker at the event was Scott Thornbury, chosen by our teaching centres in a poll to find the most innovative ELT writer today.

ELTons were presented to the following UK ELT innovators:

Tim Kelly and Hilary Nesi , Warwick university
Fiona Joseph, Flo-Joe
Martin Mulloy, BBC Worldwide

Tim Kelly and Hilary Nesi, Warwick University

Tim Kelly and Hilary Nesi won their award for an idea to improve the listening skills of international students studying in English. The six units focus on different aspects of lectures and contain 89 video excerpts from University lectures, including Germaine Greer talking about how women are portrayed in the media.

The units become progressively more challenging and include work on vocabulary, note-taking, and language. Learners can request assistance in the form of transcriptions, cultural notes, a dictionary, a grammar book, notepad pages, and feedback
