Peter C. Lippman is lecturing at SETT in Skandinavia

EIW Architect's Associate Director Peter C. Lippman will be travelling to Skandinavia in May for the SETT- Skandinavian Educational Technology Transformation Forum

Skandinavia is heavily invested in the education of future generations and take pride in furthering technology to aid the children in education.

At the Forum Peter will lecture on the importance of creating spaces conducive to learning to encourage not only collaborative working but also private working environments to help concentration. There are many factors that can affect a potential working environment such as lighting, temperature and air quality. As we all know good air flow and natural light helps the body whilst it is working. It is also important to address the type of work that will be conducted in specific areas. If a space is too small to host a group or a space too exposed for single person study, it will diminish the effectiveness of the study space.

All these things will be addressed and elaborated upon in Peter's lecture and we are looking forward to hearing what he has to say.

Moving beyond the classroom: Accommodating the changing pedagogy of higher education. By Peter C. Lippman

This paper questions the future of the ‘classroom’ as a paradigm for teaching and learning settings within the university. In turn, it proposes the notion of ‘learning spaces’ as layered transactional settings for liberating our thinking and our approach to spatial design in order to achieve dynamic learning environments able to meet current and future needs of teachers and students.
