  • New contract to improve print services across campus

    The University has recently undertaken a tender for the provision of print services.  The outcome is that Danwood will be taking over the provision of  multi-functional devices (MFDs) and the University will be exiting the relationship with Ricoh as current leases expire or are transferred to a new arrangement.  

    Danwood are the UK’s leading independent managed print and document centric service provider offering specialist support and expertise.

    The overall aim of the project is to redesign the University’s printing services to make them more reliable, more efficient, less wasteful and more sustainable.

    Key benefits of the project include:

    • Campus wide improvements to print, copy and scanning functionality
    • “Follow me” printing enabling increased accessibility to secure printing across campus
    • Significant savings and efficiency gains
    • Reduction in overall paper usage
    • Improved servicing and maintenance of equipment
    • Reductions in energy consumption

    Danwood’s Audit and Assessment team will be visiting campus in the next few weeks to gather information on the current service.  IT Services will be working closely with Danwood’s Project and Account Management team to redesign and implement a new MFD fleet to suit the needs of staff and students.

    If you have any queries about this project please email Further updates will be available on the IT Services website:

  • Introduction to Qualitative Interviewing

    30 July 2015

    Qualitative in-depth interviews are a much used and useful research tool in academic and applied social research. This one-day course provides an introduction to the theory and practice of qualitative interviewing. The course is designed primarily for researchers with minimal or no experience of qualitative interviewing. However the course may also be useful for more experienced researchers who have had little formal training or who wish to reflect on their practice. The day includes sessions exploring the characteristics of qualitative research, how to prepare for an interview, tips on how to conduct interviews effectively and the development of discussion guides for interviews. The teaching sessions are interspersed with practical exercises exploring different types of interaction that might occur during an interview and various aspects of interviewing practice. Participants will be given the opportunity to carry out a practice interview, experience being interviewed and observe interviewing taking place. We will explore a variety of ethical and other issues as these arise in discussion.

    The speakers are very experienced social researchers who will draw on their own research as well as established practice within the social sciences.
