Strategies to Assess Studio Spaces Designed to Enhance Student Learning
Ahmadi, Reza; Saiki, Diana
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v109 n1 p57-61 Win 2017
Teachers are not always aware of how the classroom design influences teaching, particularly in many family and consumer sciences (FCS) classes that require studio space, such as apparel and interior design classes. The purpose of this paper is to introduce strategies to assess studio spaces that are designed for enhancement of student learning. Three primary methodologies to assess the physical learning environment were employed: charrette, behavioral mapping, and focus group. The three methods helped identify issues with the classroom design that may affect quality of learning.
