Green, Alan C.
The presentation by Alan C. Green briefly discusses the activities and concerns of EFL and elaborates on the learning environment of the 1970's. Building programming is discussed along with the need to consider--(1) time utilization, (2) architect's early involvement in the process of building programming, (3) prevention of domination over the team, (4) program for the future, (5) research, and (6) careful communication. Five major discoveries made in the last few years are described--(1) the 24' by 32' classroom is not the only viable setting for education, (2) the most important person in education is the individual student, (3) education is not static, (4) instructional technology has a very important role to play in the educational plant, and (5) most people live in cities and most education takes place there. Significant developments in educational environment are dealt with including large and small group instructional space, common areas, classroom design, facility suites, vocational education facilities, special educational environment, modular scheduling, library innovations, information availability, instructional aids, resource centers, mix of facilities, open plan schools, school renovation, furniture design, and construction systems.
