Creating A Social Framework, Part 2: The Whole Student

Student Engagement Index (SEI)/Teacher Engagement Index (TEI): Evidence suggests that individual and group engagement factors, such as active learning, are critical predictors for a student’s academic success. An online survey tool developed by the architectural team, and consistent with primary research protocols, was used in a self-reporting structure to analyze both students’ and teachers’ perception of how their built space impacts student engagement in a Post-Occupancy Evaluation. The post-occupancy study was completed in Spring of 2019. After a year of occupancy, almost every question asked indicated that their “world of learning and teaching” has improved; at times dramatically. This research is part of a larger effort to bridge the connection between design and performance. (Dr. Lennie Scott Webber)

This session will include an introduction of key educational and A/E criteria that shaped the design of Canyon View High School, (9-12) located in the West Valley outside of Phoenix, AZ. This 2019 MacConnell Winner developed a system for prioritization that was an influential tool in correlating student-centric educational priorities with architecture that engages. The Health Safety and Welfare of elements related to safety + security, building systems, sustainability and resilience will be reviewed as to their impact on a design that leveraged both indoor and outdoor strategies to leverage the ROI both physically and socially. The dialogue that will hope to tee up nationally is:

• How can a “whole student” approach engage and promote individual successes for all students?
• How does this support not just a sense of community, but a sense of safety?
• Has a low EUI helped to provide for educational operational funding?

Learning Objectives:
1. Discuss the 10 criteria that have evolved from the primary research DLR Group for student and teacher engagement (SEI/TEI) developed in order to best design architecture that enables:
-Being a community resource
-Being stimulating architecture
-Being safe and secure
-Being innovative learning environments that connect
-Being flexible
-Being adaptive
-Being resilient and efficient
-Being thermally, visually and thermally comfortable and healthy
-Being durable and easy to maintain and operate
-Being a healthy learning environment

2. A healthy learning includes challenges of providing for the social and emotional priorities centered on student and teacher engagement that need to be included in future facing school design, especially in a post- COVID world that is demanding continued social distancing.

3. Evaluate DLR Group “VALUES” criteria for high performance/sustainability design to establish metrics for success and acceptable ROI’s (Returns on Investment) that positively affect life-cycle operating costs.

4. Review why campus commissioning that includes both building commission of systems and professional development of educational leadership and staff that may be modified to address new public health requirements supporting future facing schools and outcomes.

Program Agenda
This is the 2nd part in the Series: A Call to Action Through Data-Driven Parameters

Join DLR Group and your international A4LE colleagues to discuss how we can address a post-COVID world through a design framework that can be rapidly prototyped to addresses diverse global needs. Together, we will explore topics such as the social and virtual realities that will shape academic, social, and emotional advancements for students within an architectural context, and consider how and what criteria can best be blended to leverage return on investment.

Hosting this series will be Jim French, FAIA, Global K-12 Education Leader, Bonnie Sanborn, Design Research Leader, and Pam Loeffelman, FAIA, K-12 Education Leader.

Each session will include approximately 30 minutes where projects are used to demonstrate objectives that align design practices with future-facing educational visioning. From that framework, we will focus on how best practices can and will influence post COVID-19 initiatives. This is a topic that all of us, be we architects, educators, or parents of students are all increasingly aware of as we “shelter in place.”

This is a national dialogue that needs to be addressed. If this series allows us to launch and leverage the conversation both among ourselves and on a broader political platform “we the people” will have done our job. Our objectives include providing professionals with appropriate credits, educators with a voice, and parents with a platform to speak up on what they believe are the national priorities, especially if a national bill on infrastructure emerges.
