Obligatory interior design commentary from the interior designer ;-)
Most educational spaces are not designed for the adults who live and work in these spaces. The few spaces which are distinctly set aside for them (Teachers Lounges) are often an afterthought - and typically filled with discarded, hacked, broken, and re-purposed items.
Could professional learning be made more impactful - or might teachers be more willing to engage in it - if they had a place to go to work, learn, and collaborate with peers that made them feel like valued professionals?
I would be really interested in learning from all of you:
What kinds of interactions do you envision might happen within them?
Where should these spaces should be located?
What might they look like?
What would you want to find within one?
