Given that it is winter, and that the crisis is not over yet, rather it is in full swing, I have decided to engage in my workshops online for the foreseeable future.
This was a decision I wanted to take before new year and I contacted my provider and made it clear that is what I was going to do. It will significantly reduce the risk to me.
I just hope that the online sessions are as good! Seriously though, not an easy decision to make, but nonetheless essential. I am also on the fed up side lately so working from home might help that. I completed my degree as a home based learning course which I found great.
When it comes to the development of working conditions, I believe students learning from home is up there as being something that they can do. Working or studying from home is essential in times like this. But, I don’t like the idea of people working from home who could otherwise work in person. Some areas like being a doctor… or lawyer, require face to face work for court cases and hospitals respectively. Although, a lot of lawyers are remote working anyway. My point is, utilise the work from home but do not overdo it.
How did you find the transition to home working? Do you enjoy it or are you simply in the office out of respect for old fashioned working values? A lot of people suggest that working from home creates laziness, and to a degree I agree with that, especially if one is sitting in their pajamas for a conference or in bed whilst on the laptop for work.
