My second interview

Posted by Nick on December 2, 2008

Some of the stuff that came out in this conversation is quite interesting – though my interview technique still needs some work and I do at one point refer to my ideas for a “Nirvana for the repository”.  Cringe!

My second interview…

Though I intended to focus on PERSoNA, this interview necessarily takes in Open Access and the repository in general, the second half is more PERSoNA.

My very first interview

Posted by Nick on September 25, 2008

I can safely say that my interview technique needs some work.  Jeremy Paxman can relax.  For now.

In actual fact the SDF did not prove to be the easiest environment to interview academic staff as they were scurrying from workshop to workshop and not terribly amenable to interrogation during tea break.  I did manage to get some recorded material that should still serve as a useful starting point but I do need to think a little more about the questions.

Anyway, here is

My very first interview…

NB.  The lady in this interview HATES Wikis!

Staff Development Festival

Posted by Nick on August 29, 2008

Well, I’ve set my stall.  Almost.  A couple of Innovation North tablecloths, posters, leaflets and my brand new recoil stand.  Adjacent to the University Research Office for synergy.  It’s missing something though, je ne sais qua…it needs someone with a bit more artistic flair than I…

One activity that I intend to carry out during the Festival is ad hoc interviews with a cross section of colleagues about their understanding and use of web 2.0.  I plan to be relatively informal – grab a digital recorder and wander around with my mic like John Sargeant – then I can edit the results and post on here as a podcast; though I will also try to apply the principles of IPA and extract some meaningful data that we can then use as a springboard for more detailed exploration.
