To mark the 20th annual ITA Telework workshops, Oxford Brookes will be hosting a 2-day event on 20-21 August 2015 at the Headington Campus, Oxford.
This is intended to be a small, ‘invitation-only’ event, whichwill take stock of telework developments over the years and think critically and creatively about the next phase of research, policy and practice.
Day 1, Thursday 20th, will be very much an academic reflection on the â€˜state of the fieldâ€™. Questions to be explored here will include:
Day 2, Friday 21st, will look at the practice and policy agenda for telework â€“ and the key challenges ensuing for researchers in the field. It will also include a discussion of Day 1 outputs. The agenda for the day will include:
There is no conference fee in attending the event. However, participants will need to cover all their own expenses while in Oxford (and we are expecting some substantive input in advance of the event, to help prime the discussions). University accommodation will be available for those looking for a value-for-money place to stay.
La Academia Internacional de Teletrabajo (AIT) tiene su origen en la FundaciÃ³n Internacional de Teletrabajo (FIT), asociaciÃ³n independiente sin fines de lucro que se iniciÃ³ en 1995. Desde 1996, una serie de eventos internacionales condujeron a la promociÃ³n de investigaciones sobre teletrabajo y otras formas de trabajo y desafiaron el intercambio entre investigadores y teletrabajadores.
Algunos de los workshops anteriores se han realizado en diversos lugares tales como Londres, Amsterdam, Turku, Tokyo, Estocolmo, Badajoz, Sao Paulo, Cracovia y Creta. El resultado de los mismos ha sido la publicaciÃ³n y ediciÃ³n de libros de altos estÃ¡ndares acadÃ©micos.
The International Telework Academy has its roots in the International Telework Foundation (ITF), an independent non-profit association, which was launched in 1995 under the auspices of three independent members. Since 1996, an international series of telework workshops has been conducted to promote academic research in the domain of telework and other new forms of work, and to encourage exchange between researchers and practitioners in the field.
The academy has held a number of workshops including the UK, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Finland, Japan, Brazil, Canada and Greece. These workshops have resulted in the publication of several edited books of high academic standard.
