Design, engage, connect, repeat.

How to improve the learning process in Higher ed? We worked during 3 years to build a space that engages teachers and students. This year we built 96 classrooms and for the six following months we researched with a thousand students to understand how environment impacts on their learning process. Results showed that learning spaces could create engagement specially through flexibility. Besides that, we identified which competencies a teacher must have to better design the classroom experience.
