Design Matters: The Effects of New Schools on Students’, Teachers’ and Parents’ Actions and Perceptions.

We are pleased to announce the launch of our website which provides information on a study of post-occupancy usage of five newly built schools. The aim of our study is to understand the impacts of design of such schools on students’, teachers’ and parents’ engagement in the educational process on a number of levels. This addresses an important policy issue but also has implications for architectural practice, educational theory and methodology.

The website provides a clear overview of the project, who is involved and updates on data collection and findings, along with information on relevant events/conferences and details of publications.

The Design Matters team are Professor Harry Daniels, Professor Andy Stables, Dr Sue Learoyd-Smith, Hau Ming Tse and Sarah Cox.
