Stakeholder engagement and assessment methods to design & deliver user centric spaces
Competitiveness amongst Universities, changing expectations from students, rising fees, introduction of new frameworks and the rapid pace of change occurring with technology is changing the entire education landscape.
New campus development, as well as re-lifing and retrofitting existing spaces can create an opportunity to disrupt traditional ways of teaching and transform the way in which students interact and learn, but it must be approached in the right way.
It is clear therefore, to attract and retain students, as well as improve engagement and drive better results; the classroom of the future must utilize the physical space effectively, whilst leveraging tech-driven innovations that support the innovative environment and teaching approaches.
Clearly, understanding how existing spaces are performing by leveraging, ratings tools and post occupancy assessment will be key.
With this in mind, this year’s event will continue to focus on process of creating innovative, comfortable, accessible, flexible, collaborative, and aesthetically pleasing and technology enabled spaces, but fit will evolve to cover performance assessment of spaces
