About the Session

FR209 - How Educational Environments Impact Learning

As an architect, you know the benefits of natural light in classrooms and how well-designed spaces can positively influence learning. But how do you help a cost-minded client buy in?

In this session, environmental research experts will define the challenges, opportunities, and potential impacts of new research in educational design, including:
• Evaluating the many contributing factors to student performance (economic, social, and cultural) and isolating the specific impacts of the physical environment
• Their perspectives on what constitutes effective research
• How their research could shape educational spaces moving forward

Come hear interesting insights—and learn to put your best case forward.

Additional presenters for this session are:

Diana Sorenson, Associate at VMDO Architects

Jeff Vincent, Deputy Director, Center for Cities+Schools at Institute for URban + Regional Development, Univeristy of California , Berkeley

Karen Dobkins, Professor, Department of Psychology at University of California, San Diego

The session will take place on May 20 from 2-3 p.m. ET.
