  16. Experience and issues Successful scholarships in partnership with IATEFL Active evaluation of further support of the ELT community Evaluation in collaboration with staff members Careful about new initiatives

  17. Criteria for selection of projects and project partners Mission to ensure IHT is true to principles in language teaching as a way of developing cultural understanding and benefitting those in need We need to prove we’re worthy of the non-profit status of IH London and IH Oxford

  18. Criteria (continued) • Must be related to IH areas of expertise • Must have a definable goal • Must be politically neutral • International projects must have a partner with a UK base • Should be scrutinized to measure impact and legacy • May be individual projects or strategic partnerships • Proposal must be submitted • with costs

  19. Follow up and strategy What will the MOU say? What will be the mutual communications benefits? What special circumstances or issues might there be? What are the staff benefits and consultation? How will the participating staff feedback and contribute to project evaluation?
