We have a digital first strategy when it comes to printing and communications, for example we no longer give out printed prospectuses and booklets and use digital screens instead of leaflets for sharing information amongst our campus community. Our reprographics unit on campus has been closed and we are developing a new app for students that aims to become a one stop shop for all staff and student information.
Our digital transformation strategy recognises the importance of investing in technology to allow for a shift in working practices. For instance improving video conferencing to reduce travel and improving remote connectivity to optimise the sharing of office space and hot desking.
By transitioning from a paper-based exam system to a digital exam system for the whole University we will significantly reduce the amount of paper we use.
