“Nomadic Work/Life in the Knowledge Economy: Insights for ICT practitioners and designers”
Researchers involved in the Nomadic Work/Life in the Knowledge Economy Project (http://nwl.ul.ie) will present topics of interest for ICT practitioners and designers that emerged from their research. The Nomadic Work/Life in the Knowledge Economy project focuses on the mobility of highly-skilled professionals (managers, scientists, engineers, consultants etc.) who work in information-intensive environments. In particular, the team examines how mobile work affects non-work activities, and how it correlates with technology-mediation and gender differences in the workplace.
The team members will present a brief overview of their research, in particular of the practical implications for design, work management, collaboration, etc
