It gives me great pleasure to announce the winners of this year’s UCLU Student Choice Teaching Awards. We have been delighted to receive nominations from across the university, highlighting the impact good teaching can have on students’ experience at UCL. Every nominee should be proud of the positive impact they’ve had in helping students develop and thrive at UCL. The high quality of the nominations didn’t make it easy for the panel, but the winners were those which really showed themselves to stand out in their dedication to quality teaching and support for students.

Cycling and Culture Symposium at UCL on 1 May

Wed, 23/04/2014 - 15:07

Cycling has been growing quickly in London but still remains a minority form of transport, with even lower participation in other parts of the UK. What status does this give cycling in culture? Are cyclists considered ‘outsiders’, and if so, what does this mean?

This half-day symposium organised by UCL Transport Institute will look at cycling and culture from a range of perspectives, attempting to shed light on how cyclists interact with their environment and with others.
