Digitally Assisted Life-(Im)Balance?

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference Paperpeer-review


This position paper argues that ‘work-life balance’ is an important and complex topic and that digital technologies play significant roles in bringing about what is experienced as poor or positive work-life balance. As yet we have limited understanding of the many, and continually evolving, systemic roles that digital technologies and habits play in life-balance. This includes how their design can either enhance or degrade that experience. Finally we argue for the need to develop methods for identifying and modelling systemic factors that underlie problematic and beneficial digital behaviours and the technological designs and affordances that support them
