Designing for Learning

Spaces for learning need to be carefully designed and managed—our brains perform much better in some places that others and our tired heads need opportunities to refresh if they’re going to continue to develop knowledge and skills. Applying what neuroscientists have learned about design-learning connections makes “lessons” more productive and positive experiences more likely. 

Understanding Air Temperature

The temperature of air surrounding us has a dramatic effect on how we experience a space and what we do/think while we’re in it.  The highlights of neuroscience research on our “best temperatures,” how design can influence how warm/cold we think a space is, and why ambient temperature matters at all are reviewed here.

Place Love

People can build positive relationships with places just as they do with other humans.  When person-place bonds are established, physical and mental wellbeing and performance skyrocket.  Neuroscience research details practical ways design can encourage connections between people and places.
