20 Okt EIfI at a special interest day: „School development meets school architecture“
The school of the future is a flexible room. New pedagogical approaches give new challenges to school buildings. The room characterises the pedagogical everyday life, creates possibilities, stimulates to action and becomes the third teacher. This can only be successful if all stakeholders – education authorities, school management, college students and parents, planners and architects – are involved in the planning process for new and renovated buildings. On 29th of September 2016 a project manager of the European Institute for Innovation participated in the special interest day „School development meets school architecture“. The special interest day provided different opportunities:
– discussions with renowned experts and practitioners about new ways of school development and school architecture
– to deal together with educators, architects and planners with current concepts and successful practical examples
– to meet the nationwide acclaimed school building “Campus Learning House” in Osterholz-Scharmbeck
The presentation of Dr. Karl-Heinz Imhäuser was very interesting and the following working phases were a good possibility to realise special needs of school development, financial issues for new pedagogical concepts in cooperation with modern school architecture and to get in contact with representatives of the administration, principals and teachers, architects and educational institutions.The working phase where the EIfI participated was named “Phase 0 – Design Vote – Financing – Planning process and Educational Architecture”.
