Innovating Higher Education 

through the Built Environment

The way in which students are consuming information is evolving at the same rate as technology. In a study conducted by Barnes and Noble College looking at GenZ, 
51% of surveyed students said they learn best by doing while only 12% said they learn through listening. Without facilities and spaces to accommodate these changes, college institutions will be stuck in the past and will not able to adapt in the competitive environment.

Institutions need to rethink holistically how to prepare students for the future and the best way to deliver that information. By reevaluating the benefits that different spaces deliver to students’ learning, colleges can expand education beyond the traditional classroom format to foster an environment of continuous active learning.  

The 6th Future Learning Spaces (formerly Next Generation Learning Spaces) will gather university leaders who have created spaces for students and faculty to thrive in. Join us to learn how mixed-use developments are strategically combining learning spaces with student housing, study, media and faculty spaces. The hybridization of these buildings will be at the forefront of the discussion.
