SCHOMS 2022 – We’re back in action!

Top – Tec are delighted to be returning as a sponsor for SCHOMS 2022, taking place at Durham University from the 21st – 23rd of June.

We would like to thank everyone at SCHOMS for all their hard work in putting this event together. We can’t wait to see everyone in person for what promises to be a great couple of days.

What are we taking?


Delegates should make sure to drop by our stand  between 11:00am and 4:00pm on the 21st for a chat. We can’t wait to show you our new solution – RISE. It was developed as part of a flexible learning spaces project for The University of Michigan.

Working with John Jahn at the University we outlined several specific objectives to the solution:

  • It needed to be flexible in nature.
  • Users should be able to seamlessly switch between technology focused and traditional activities.
  • When not in use the equipment should not obstruct or hinder the user from the class.
  • Finally, the solution should be able to pair with other furniture to facilitate collaborative activities.

The unit we designed can be in use as a traditional display while the screen is raised. It can also be partnered with flexible desks for collaborative group work. Therefore, allowing the user to create different spaces to suit their learning or teaching style on the day.

Another key aspect of the unit’s design was creating a functional but low impact. It needed to be a nesting shape that allowed multiple units to sit close together when not required. This meant the unit had to be slim but also wide enough to accommodate both the screen and its height adjustable parts. Finding this balance was something our designers worked hard to achieve.
