Ongoing Research

Ongoing Research

Research shows that as instructors and students engage in new ways of learning, classroom furniture and tools can help or hinder the process.

Our human-centered design research at schools, colleges and universities across the U.S. and Canada shows that while active learning is increasing, classrooms often prevent students and instructors from making the most of collaborative learning.

The same research can be applied to corporate learning spaces or project team rooms.

Research shows that instructors’ use of lecture is decreasing while discussion and group learning is rising. (Source: Educause Guide to U.S. Higher Education 2005)

Mobile + Versatile

Mobile + Versatile

Observation

Static furniture creates barriers to communication, limits movement, discourages collaboration and detracts from the learning experience.

Insight

Classroom furniture must be mobile, versatile and offer simple, seamless transitions for multimodal teaching and learning styles.

Engagement + Active Participation

Engagement + Active Participation

Observation

Traditional classrooms are geared toward lecture mode and do not foster democratic participation or student engagement.

Insight

Cultivating engagement requires a fundamental shift toward active participation, with tools that are accessible and convenient for all.

Multiple Postures

Multiple Postures

Observation

When teaching styles and postures are restricted, instructors can’t work the way that’s best for their curriculum and students.

Insight

Instructors need furniture that supports teaching while standing, perching on the desk and seated in conversation with students.

Temporary Storage

Temporary Storage

Observation

Lockable and hard-to-access storage in shared classrooms is not used by instructors. Their materials often end up on the floor or worksurface.

Insight

Instructors need temporary storage that is easily accessible throughout a class period, while freeing up work and floor space.
