In a new video, Hau Ming Tse, a Research Fellow in the Department of Education, as well as students and teachers from Northfleet Technology College talk about how the design of their new school building has affected learning.

The new school building was designed by architects, teachers and students to ensure that their modern style of teaching and learning was reflected in the building itself.

Design Matters is a project led by Harry Daniels, Professor of Education in Oxford’s Department of Education. The AHRC funded project investigates the effects of newly designed schools on their users, particularly students and teachers. This addresses an important policy issue but also has implications for architectural practice, educational theory and methodology. To find out more about Design Matters, visit:
