Webinar Focus: Distance learning and virtual reality learning platforms are becoming the go-to learning content delivery system. With so much emphasis on e-learning, learning in place, and anytime, anyplace, anywhere teaching and learning methodologies, what is the future for the built environment? Will bricks and mortar facilities still be relevant? How will schools and other learning environments be affected by this growing development for distance learning?
Presentation Description: For centuries – and that’s a long time, the association with teaching and learning and the built environment have been a packaged unit. Students attend a brick and mortar facility, teachers deliver content in a prescribed face-to-face method, engagement of school community and activities take place within the built environment and we know how to function.
Over time, distance learning has been introduced into the instructional platform. Teachers and students engage in sharing information and content in a two-dimensional reality via a distance learning platform. Some instruction and engagement take place within a tangible structure while other elements of the teaching and learning process are delivered virtually. This has been a norm for the industry for decades. Yet, we are now face with a new reality of what our future make be in terms of buildings, community hangout, and overall, the effect and impact that the immediate need for distance learning is having and will continue to have with respect to migrating back to a structured environment.
