ITI members embrace co-working following Cardiff conference

Several ITI groups have organised co-working sessions in the past few weeks, inspired by Richard Lackey’s talk about co-working at the ITI Conference in May.

Co-working involves meeting up with other professionals to work from the same space. Linguists who take part in co-working sessions do not have to be working on the same project, but co-working can lead to interesting opportunities for collaboration. Cardiff was an appropriate setting for Richard’s talk, as ITI Cymru Wales’s co-working days recently reached the three-year mark, having moved last year from fortnightly to weekly due to demand.

In May and June, several regional groups met at co-working spaces, libraries and cafes around the UK, Bristol and Cardiff, and Manchester linguists already meet regularly. Groups in Barcelona, Belfast, Leeds, Liverpool, Newcastle and Sheffield also gave co-working a try, and many are planning to make it a regular fixture after the summer. Interest was also shown in Birmingham, London, Paris, Plymouth and Southampton. Please consult your regional group for further detail and to find out when you can join their next session.

Richard commented: “Although plenty of online spaces exist, the ability to talk directly with your peers can make it well worth leaving your home office for a day”.

The full story is available in the July-August issue of the ITI Bulletin.
