We are better together

We are a value-driven organization. When the world was upended by the COVID-19 pandemic, Stantec partnered with the Association for Learning Environments (A4LE) to offer a complementary collection of learning resources focused on supporting our education community. We knew our clients and communities were looking to us for solutions and support—this is how we responded.

The webinars created for this initiative still bear valuable information and thought leadership. We hope these resources provide timeless insight on how to improve learning environments.

Webinar Series: Co-creation: Engaging Students To Plan and Design Better Schools

Presented by: Bill Bradley, PhD from Stantec. This presentation will take a closer look at the principles of co-creation within the framework of school planning, design, and operation. Attendees will explore a renewed process that seeks to recast expectations and put the needs of learners, educators, and the community at the forefront of process. Presenters will share lessons learned from projects where outcomes led to pioneering solutions in the communities they serve. Webinar Recording

Webinar Series: Makerspaces: From Elementary Schools to College Campuses

Presented by: Gwen Morgan and Allison Schneider from Stantec | Stantec’s Research + Benchmarking team traveled the US touring and gathering data on all kinds of makerspaces. From our research, four categories of spaces emerged as essential to today’s makers. Our presenters will share their findings of what inspires and defines the contemporary makerspace, and how schools are incorporating them into their learning environments in new and different ways.

Webinar Series: Post Occupancy Evaluations—Key to Healthy & Successful Buildings

Presented by: Cristy Bickel from Stantec | What can we learn from post-occupancy evaluations? In this session, presenters will share the details of a post-occupancy evaluation, from what it is to the process and recommendations for who should be involved. We’ll show you how to use these evaluations to determine how well your facility is performing against goals, and uncover lessons learned from other schools to inform building design for the future.
