SEMINAR 4th June: Jon Whittle & Gillian Symon - Multi-Sensory Experiences: Exploring Work-Life Balance in a Digital World
2 June 2014
Wednesday 4th June 2014 at 3pm, Chadwick B05 LT
Jon Whittle from Lancaster University and Gillian Symon from Royal Holloway University of London.
Digital technologies – smart phones, email, social networking, etc. – are fundamentally changing our relationship with work. Digital technologies enable us to be always connected and allow us to work wherever and whenever we want. However, the question remains as to how digital technologies affect our work-life balance. Is always-on connectivity a good thing because it gives us freedom to work any time and any place? Or does it cause unnecessary stress because we can never switch off?
The Digital Brain Switch (DBS) project is studying the changing nature of work-life balance as a result of digital technologies. We are particularly interested in how people switch between different work-life roles – parent, spouse, friend, co-worker, manager, employee – and how digital technologies either support this or act as a barrier.
In this talk, we will present early results from the project. The project takes a multi-disciplinary approach. We have worked with three diverse groups of participants to collect video diary and interview data on how digital technologies affect work-life balance. In addition, we are designing and building new technologies that could potentially help people to manage their work-life balance.
