Classrooms examined include general purpose classrooms, lecture halls, seminar rooms, and specialized classrooms such as distance education and interactive video classrooms. Separate guidelines are presented for each classroom type. The manual also explores the use of technology in classrooms, discusses a team planning approach to programming for classroom design, offers advice on equipment security and on meeting accessibility regulations, and provides practical applications for surveying classrooms using illustrative checklists. Appendices contain designing issues involving accessibility under the Americans with Disabilities Act; regulations, codes, and compliance agencies; a bibliography of books and articles on classroom design; a list of professional organizations involved in facility design; the authors' biographies; and photos of sample classroom designs.
