Classroom design hinges on the future of how we teach

Changes in the education process are impacting the way we design our classrooms. They're also impacting what we consider a classroom. The growing number of students taking classes online has led to an expansion of our definition of a learning environment.

Ellen Kollie recently covered this in College Planning and Management. In her article, she sheds light on the future of our educational delivery systems, and what we are doing today to support flexible learning environments that students and teachers want.

She turned to me as a source in her reporting, and included my thoughts on the future of classroom design, and the role online education is playing in this change. Thanks for featuring my feedback, Ellen.
