Vandal Voices: Classroom Quality: How building design affects student performance

Feb. 13, 2020
5:30-6:30 p.m.
Amsterdam Lounge (609 W Main St, Boise)

Recent studies have shown that poor classroom design can reduce student performance by up to 30%, but, how does one quantify what a “well-designed” classroom looks like? And how are Idaho’s schools measuring up?

University of Idaho research assistant professor Damon Woods will discuss how student health and engagement are impacted by environmental factors like lighting, air quality and temperature. The talk will end with a conversation on how Idaho’s parents, teachers and school board members can work to change the status quo of poor classroom quality. We’ll discuss practical, economically viable ways to improve the indoor environmental quality and the energy efficiency of our schools.
