T29 Designing Schools that Enhance Learning

Through case studies and discussion, this panel will explore how inclusive, well-designed classrooms are key to supporting positive educational outcomes for future generations. This will include a review acoustics, biophilic design and space layouts that balance solo and active learning. Recommendations from prominent building guidelines will be addressed, including LEED, RHFAC and WELL.
