Furniture for the Millennial Student

Filed under: Faculty Professional Development — Lela Mac @ 1:08 pm

“Text, Twitter, Podcasting”… Millenials are adept at filtering information and making snap decisions.. multi-tasking.
A really good book that was recommended during this presentation, “Shift Happens” by Fisch. We’ll have to check it out!
Studies have shown that if students and faculty are attracted/comfortable with spaces used for learning.. it actually raises the retention rate. This is why Steelcase is focusing on today’s Millennial student and their way of learning/communicating (texting, computers, social interaction, groups..) Also, important to note, is that learning takes place everywhere (hallways, lobbies, student centers..).

This presentation was made by Emily Walser. She is coming to CCC to speak to IDesign and anyone else interested about Steelcase, Inc. on Nov 23rd at 1pm.
