Formal learning spaces that adapt to and even take advantage of tomorrow's changes create new opportunities and increase the effectiveness of the space.
A key indicator of student success is engagement. Formal learning spaces that foster peer-to-peer and student-faculty interactions increase the level of students' participation and the odds of their success.
Many formal learning spaces do not have the luxury of outdoor vistas and natural daylighting. Consider opportunities for connecting to nature through color, lighting, and displays of students' work.
