Novigado webinar #2: Designing Post-COVID Learning Spaces


The second Novigado webinar took place on 18 June 2020 and focussed on the topic of designing post-COVID learning spaces.

In the past months, the COVID pandemic forced school closures in most European countries and is raising now questions on how to carry out the school opening in a safe way for all pupils and staff when the new school year starts. This compels us to rethink how to leverage technology and physical classroom design. In this context, our webinar speaker, Teresa Vendeirinho from the Steelcase Portugal, talked about their work related to post-COVID learning spaces and specifically their new publication "Designing Post-COVID Learning Spaces".
