Keynote Presentation

Keynote Presentation:  Bringing Academics, Health and the Physical Environment Together - Creating the “Student-Centered Learning Home”

Speaker:  Tracy Enger, Program Manager, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

Description:  Where students learn is just as important as what they learn. The spaces, especially the indoor environment, where kids learn have a profound impact on their academic, physical and emotional well-being. Schools are not just places for students to go to class. With the increase of school-based health centers, food programs, and shelter-in-place sites, our schools are the locus of learning, healing and community. For many students, regardless of its physical condition, their school is seen as the cleanest, healthiest, safest place available to them. Given the elevated role schools play in today’s culture, we must design, build, equip, furnish and maintain the nation’s schools in a way that not only is optimal for the building facilities, but also meets the academic, health, and social goals of the diverse occupants who inhabit those spaces. This session explores how every one of us who contributes to these educational spaces can be educators, healthcare providers, social workers, facilities managers and industry leaders devoted to delivering optimal learning environments for optimal outcomes.

General Session: Portable Classroom - An approach to sustainable school design as it relates to portable classrooms

Speaker: Paul Byrne, Principal, paul byrne architect LEED AP

Description: This presentation will investigate an approach to sustainable school design as it relates to portable classrooms. Practicing architecture I felt I had a minimal amount of ability to make a positive impact on what is arguably the biggest issue of our time, Global Warming. This was despite the fact that the largest sector of our nation’s energy output is dedicated to heating and cooling buildings. However, after learning that almost 1/3 of all the public classrooms in CA were, the notoriously energy inefficient, “relocatables” (over 100,000) we started Green Apple Classrooms a grid-neutral portable project. As the market for new buildings slowed during the last recession we pivoted to solar energy retrofits of relocatables and formed Sovereign Modular. SovMod is a company specializing in the solarizing of relocatables by taking advantage of a creative but simple structural technology.

Keynote Presentation

Keynote Presentation:  Proven Strategies for Educating Gen Z – A Model that is reinventing “Learning Places”

Speaker: Kevin M. Greischar, AIA, K-12 Education Leader, Principal, DLR Group

Description: The growing unrest among Millennials and Gen Y students created a wake-up call to our nation’s K-16 education systems, Gen Z (iGen) students expect to be met where their world is today. They are being educated in an increased globalized and technologically innovative environment. This promises to seriously disrupt the futures of these generations in ways yet known. It’s hard to forecast the types of jobs that today’s kindergarteners will be pursuing 15-20 years from now. But we do know our education models need to acknowledge this unprecedented societal change. The new Missouri Innovation Campus (MIC) facility acknowledges the Gen Z learner and is an example of breaking down the barriers of traditional classrooms into “Learning Places”.

General Session

General Session:  Spatial Implications of Early Childhood Pedagogies

Speaker:  John Noble, AIA, LEED AP, Project Architect SHP LEADING DESIGN

Description:  It is a settled matter that the learning environment exerts considerable influence on students’ learning outcomes, but it is less clear what the relationship between pedagogy and space could be, in an ideal world scenario. While much is made in the current discussion of design for education of the correlation between spaces and learning outcomes, there is comparatively little documented research on the correlation between specific spatial/design decisions and their impact on behaviors, experiences and learning. In light of the discreet number of well-defined, distinct pedagogical strategies that guide early childhood education, we believe that this is perhaps the most clear-cut arena in which to explore how specific design decisions (open/confined, inside/outside, bright/dark, large/medium/small, connected/self-contained, etc.) influence, for good or ill, the impact of the teaching methods employed within. To that end, we will explore some of the work our office is involved in (including a collaborative effort with the Schools of Education and Architecture at the University of Cincinnati) along with a discussion of how these insights have informed our work through a presentation of a few of our recent projects.
