Abstract

A primary objective of any credible academic program is to maintain learning environments and facilities that meet the approval of our accreditation bodies. In recent times, an increased emphasis on providing spaces that enrich collaboration and amplify opportunities for productivity has been witnessed. A student’s ability to absorb information and work in partnership with each other is greatly affected by the built environment. This includes such influences as the available classroom technology as well as the furniture and other equipment being used within the learning space. A well-designed instructional environment can also enhance camaraderie between scholars and aid in recruitment and retention. But what happens when a program has limited resources or imperfect prospects related to physical space at the institution?

A student’s ability to absorb information and work in partnership with each other is greatly affected by the built environment. This includes such influences as the available classroom technology as well as the furniture and other equipment being used within the learning space. A well-designed instructional environment can also enhance camaraderie between scholars and aid in recruitment and retention.
