Old norms are giving way to a deeper, broader and more individualized perspective on what student success is and how to achieve it. Many educators are rethinking their teaching methods, curricula, support services and technologies, all with the aim of developing a more relevant and strategic approach. The Active Learning Center Grant from Steelcase Education is launching its third cycle to help educators create the most effective, rewarding and inspiring active learning environments to meet the evolving needs of students and teachers.
It’s not just a millennial thing. People of all ages are craving informal, casual and authentic spaces at work. These inspiring, breakout spaces can benefit the holistic wellbeing of workers while helping to promote employee engagement.
Steelcase global research shows the workplace can be an important tool in engaging employees. The workplace can do this by placing an emphasis on the wellbeing of people, considering their physical, cognitive and emotional wellbeing needs at work. There is a cultural movement in office design to create thoughtfully curated office spaces that are more human-centered — focusing on design, materiality and performance.
