Learning Environments: All In All, It’s Not Just Another Brick In The Wall!

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) is supporting a seminar on future learning environments on 19 and 20 September, at the University of Nottingham.

The seminar, first proposed by the RIBA School's Client Forum, is the first of its kind, and will bring together experts and practitioners from all disciplines, providing a forum for developing a vision for future learning environments and acting as a vehicle for its realisation. The programme has been designed by a panel of industry experts to ensure that all content is directly responsive to the needs of professionals.

Over the two days the event will examine all elements involved in the provision of learning environments, promote thought leadership and disseminate best practice and cutting edge design from around the world.

Through a combination of inspirational speakers - including Mukund Patel of the Department for Education and Skills, Shirley Turner of the Education Building and Development Officers Group and Judith Smyth from the Office for Public Management - interactive workshop sessions, discussion groups, demonstrations, panels, and case studies, the key issues covered will include:

  • Sustainable design: the real cost
  • Pupils’ vision for learning environments
  • Overcoming barriers to good practice
  • Designing for the future: pedagogical, technological and environmental change
  • Legislation: what does it mean for you?
  • Environmental quality: acoustics; temperature; air quality

In addition to the seminar, accommodation and subsistence over both days including dinner is included in a registration fee of £495 + VAT.
