The changes converging in education – and work – today are extraordinary.

  • There’s a new generation of learners, Gen Y, with different experiences and expectations than those of their boomer parents.
  • Rapidly changing technology is continually offering new approaches to work, to learning and to instruction.
  • Multiple pedagogies are being employed at every level and within every category of education.

These changes present a challenge to successfully teaching 21st century skills in 20th century-style facilities.

With all this concurrent change impacting the way we learn, the way we teach and the way we do business, it’s more important than ever to maximize your real estate and create active learning spaces to prepare today’s learners for the global, mobile, non-stop reality of today.

Attend this education symposium to discover how insight-led research and innovation in furniture, tools and technologies can help you create active learning spaces that are smarter, more effective and designed for change. Featuring Dr. Lennie Scott Webber, Director of Educational Environments for Steelcase and former Chair of the Department of Interior Design at Radford University, as well as other expert panelists, this seminar will help you create dynamic learning environments for an ever-changing world.
