John Lewis vouchers competition portal redevelopment survey

The Teaching and Learning Portal – UCL’s one-stop shop for information about teaching – is soon to be redeveloped.

The aim of the project is to ensure that this site provides UCL staff involved in teaching with all of the information they need in an attractive, user-friendly format.

The first stage is to ask UCL staff for their input.

You can have your say by completing a short online survey by 2pm Friday 27 June. It should take no more than 10 minutes to complete and will give you the chance to win £100 of John Lewis vouchers.

To take part, visit Opinio.

Terms and conditions

There is no cash alternative for the stated prize.

The Teaching and Learning Portal editor’s decision is final.

The survey closes at 2pm on Friday 27 June 2014.

A winner will be selected at random on 30 June 2014.

The prize draw is only open to members of UCL staff who are involved in teaching or supporting students’ learning.
