Lecturer wins iPad in Teaching and Learning Newsletter competition

14 May 2012

The winner of a competition celebrating the new UCL Teaching and Learning Newsletter has been announced.

Dr Marlen Aasa-Chapman, Lecturer in Virology at UCL

May 2012 will see the launch of UCL’s first Teaching and Learning Newsletter. Published in conjunction with the Teaching and Learning Portal, the e-newsletter will contain all the latest T&L-related news from around the university as well as information on innovative teaching methods and institutional priorities.

To celebrate the launch of the newsletter, the first issue of which will be emailed to subscribers this month, a competition was run offering new subscribers the chance to win an iPad.

The lucky winner, who was chosen at random, was Dr Marlen Aasa-Chapman, Lecturer in Virology. She said, “I’m so happy to have won the iPad – I don’t think I’ve ever won a prize before!

“I’m currently in my probationary period as a lecturer and I’m studying for a Professional Certificate in Teaching and Learning in Higher and Professional Education at the Institute of Education. I read about the newsletter just as I was writing my first essay for the course, and subscribed because I thought it could be a good source of ideas.”
