How well do your learning and teaching environments work for you?
Introducing a collaborative way to build better learning environments.
Whether you’re involved in running a new school, an established trust, a university department, public library or creative studio you will have worked hard to establish your educational vision. At Co-DB we want to help you make your building reflect your vision and support the change you want to see.
You may have inherited your learning environment from a bygone era, when curricula and priorities where different, or
had little say in how a new building was designed and built. You may have realised that your current fit out was chosen from a catalogue and doesn’t live up to expectations.
Traditionally our learning spaces have been designed, built, maintained and used by very distant groups of people, resulting in poorly used spaces that cost a lot whilst doing very little for your educational goals. At Co-DB we bring together users, designers and makers to achieve better results through joint understanding and collaborative action.
of collaborative design and build:
Poorly designed, anonymous spaces make high quality learning and teaching hard.
Collaboration creates spaces which nurture learning and speak of your unique pedagogy.
