Education Research 

Campus research drives our active learning solutions.  

The changes in education today are a challenge we have studied for years -- and continue to study as we develop insight-led products for the 21st-century campus. We engage in various studies with schools at all levels, observing educators at work and testing design principles, product ideas and applications. We're going to school practically every day, listening and learning, working with teachers, students and administrators to create new, innovative, active learning spaces.

Insights and Applications Guide - Version 4

The guide provides the latest thinking on spaces all around campus, including research, design guidelines and applications. Also included are our product offerings for learning spaces in seating, tables, visual work tools, technology and faculty stations. Learn more.
