Share your thoughts on the furniture in SFU classrooms

By Centre for Educational Excellence staff

SFU's Learning Space Design Committee is collecting input from the academic community on the most desirable attributes of the tables and chairs in SFU classrooms.

SFU’s Learning Space Design Committee is inviting members of the SFU community to channel their inner interior designer.

On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, December 3–5, 2019, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., the committee will be displaying furniture options for SFU classrooms at three locations on the Burnaby campus as part of the My Classroom project. Members of the SFU community will have the opportunity to view and try out these options that have the potential to “transform our learning spaces into flexible, integrated and connected spaces” for students and instructors.

Whether you are a faculty member, a student or a staff member, the committee members are eager to hear your views on the ideal setup for learning and teaching and will be there to listen.

Please take some time in the next few days to drop by the display locations to share your input:

  • James Douglas Safe Study Area (near Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt) – Table and chair samples
  • AQ 4000 South – Sample classroom setup
  • Math West (West Mall Centre 2800) – Informal learning space setup

Drop in and help to shape the future of learning environments at SFU!
