Agile Workspaces – Background
Agile workspaces create environments that provide a flexible space for activity-based working and learning. Generally, creating different learning areas gives students and employees autonomy. You empower them to decide where, how, and when they want to work. But why is this so important? In education, agile workspaces encourage collaboration, boost student engagement, and productivity. In business environments, agile working and workspaces provide workers flexibility. Flexible working is proven to boost staff retention. A flexible space also means a reduction in the costs of office space and equipment.
Agile Workspaces in Education – The Importance of Furniture
Agile workspaces are based on the pedagogy – agile learning. Put simply, it is a learning style that focuses on collaboration and flexibility. In order to create an effective agile learning space, you must create multi-purpose, flexible spaces. Also, the spaces need to be able to accommodate a number of learning styles and activities. Additionally, technology must also be integrated to facilitate different learning styles and future-proof the design. Most importantly the space needs to set the expectations that students will experience within the workplace.
Modular furniture is a key aspect of creating agile workspaces. In fact, today’s classroom or lecture theatre can instantly transform into an open and interactive learning space. Therefore the furniture that you choose should be mobile and easily managed to suit personal preference. Height adjustable desk and chairs, mobile screens, trolleys as well as designated collaborative areas are all important components for delivering a truly flexible and adaptable workspace.
