EDsession: Biophilic Design for Learning

  • Date:Wednesday, October 23
  • Time:8:00 AM - 9:00 AM
  • Location:Classroom 101
  • Description: Connecting people to experiences of nature in the built environment can lower stress and improve cognitive function-- this is biophilic design. This presentation will include the science, elements and case studies. It will highlight the results of a recently completed study of the impacts of biophilic design on learning outcomes and biometric stress measurements among middle school students.
  • Learning Objective 1:Hear how to incorporate specific biophilic design strategies that will produce a positive impact on learning space user's well-being and academic success.
  • Learning Objective 2:Learn to techniques to access the performance of the spaces you design with testing and biometric measurements.
  • Learning Objective 3:Become inspired to replicate the methodology, and create your own practitioner-academic research partnership and studies.
  • Learning Objective 4:Apply the principles of neuroscience theory of function, perception, and biophlic design and access a compressive list of precedent research.
