Balance Network retreat

13-15 Jan 2014, Birmingham

The Balance Network, together with its associated projects, organised a gathering of academics interested in issues relating to Work-Life Balance (WLB), Digital Technologies, and the links between the two to facilitate a deeper understanding of work across disciplines in these themes.

The three day retreat presented an opportunity for participants to deepen their understanding of academic work within other disciplines across the themes of the network. It also involved virtual participation of some members who were unable to attend in person.

Each participant brought an item to the retreat (e.g. piece of reading, writing, potential bid, key topic they would like to explore more), which they worked on individually and formed the basis for group discussions and peer review sessions.

The event was held at Woodbrooke, Birmingham over 13-15th January, 2014.
