Co-Working Community

Join us on Monday mornings for these online co-working sessions, to add some accountability and peer encouragement to your week.


How does it work?

Open to all doctoral students and FTRs; you’re welcome to bring along whatever you’re working on (writing, reading, note taking, editing, training course, anything!).

The sessions are 9:30 to 12:30, and will consist of three x 60-minute blocks, each made up of 50 minutes’ focused work followed by a ten-minute break, like this:

09:30 - 10:20  Block 1
10:20 - 10:30  Break
10:30 - 11:20  Block 2
11:20 - 11:30  Break
11:30 - 12:20  Block 3
12:20 - 12:30  Wrap Up

At the start of each block, you’ll be asked to enter a short summary in the chat of what you want to achieve in the 50-minutes, and then with microphones off and cameras on (if possible / practical) we’ll work in silence. At the end of the session, you’ll be asked to note in the chat how you got on. 

Because no verbal participation’s required, it’s particularly suitable for anyone working in a library or shared space.


Just think: by lunchtime, you could have finished three solid hours of work – a pretty good start to the week! 


Every Monday through term


How does it work?

Join the CWC mailing list here and receive the Teams link for the term.

You will receive one email every week with a reminder of the Teams link, and be added to the Division's CWC Microsoft Teams group (called 'Social Sciences - CWC'). Through the Teams group,  you will be able to keep in contact with other members of the group between sessions, share resources or links. and arrange additional meet-ups (for example, during the vacations) as suits you.

You attend the sessions you can: no need to book or cancel in advance  

We will generate a retrospective Cosy booking for that session, to keep your training and development transcript up to date.
