Just as today's younger workers expect a blurring of work/life boundaries, students and faculty expectations have changed as well. Online learning has transformed what colleges are building. Informal learning spaces for progressive teaching modalities, social spaces or campus hubs and technology zones are in demand. Peer reviewed studies show that classrooms designed for active learning, where physical space supports a focus on engaging experiences for students and faculty, had a statistically significant effect on student engagement.
Students today prefer learning environments that empower them to learn anytime, anyplace, and at any pace, both in school and beyond. Much like employees in the work environment, students want to learn peer to peer and have space to collaborate. Creating spaces that allow for physical movement and flexibility for students and teachers is key to support the methodology that that the mind and body work together so that physical feedback and actions reinforce the learning process.
