We are a team of UofG staff helping the institution support and sustain positive change for the University community.
We focus on projects and initiatives which improve the staff experience, the student experience, or both.
If you have any questions, we'd love to hear from you!
"Like many research-intensive institutions, the University of Glasgow has in place a small team to facilitate transformation across a range of different functions.
Our initiative focuses on a small number of projects intended to make our operations more efficient, while also improving the experience of staff and students"
David Duncan, Chief Operating Officer, and University Secretary
Part of the transformation agenda within the University is to explore new ways of working. We are currently running an Automation proof of concept. This means we are building and deploying virtual workers to help reduce the pressure on teams who manage the high volume administrative tasks that are essential to the smooth running of services. Adding virtual workers to teams means that time can be freed up to focus on other activities.
Assessment and Feedback
We are supporting the University to develop a sector-leading, evidence-based inclusive approach to assessment and feedback that enables our students to be lifelong, self-regulated learners and to actively contribute to assessment and feedback processes. At the heart of our approach will be meaningful, diverse, and inclusive assessment that is responsive to changes in higher education and the workplace.

Business & Service Design
The University is a complex environment, with people, processes, and systems operating collaboratively. Our services enable students and staff to achieve goals, but user expectations and the needs of the organisation continue to evolve. That’s where design comes in.
