ELTons award winner professor Stephen Bax reveals all about his career and his passion for innovation
- Before becoming a university professor at the Open University, you had some interesting and varied experiences as a Tefl teacher. Tell us about your career to date.
I started in Tefl in 1981 when I saw an advert for teachers in Sudan saying: ‘Teachers wanted, no experience necessary.’ So from 1981 to 1983 I taught English in a girls’ school in Argo in north Sudan with classes of up to 120, and I loved every minute of it, including learning Arabic.
