During the event, visitors had the opportunity to experience furniture and settings that Steelcase created to address changing needs in the modern education environment, and transform traditional "stand-and-deliver, sit-and-listen" passive learning settings into an active, flexible ecosystem that better equips students for their future. Inspired by Orangebox's latest research report: The Sticky Campus and the new dynamics of Smartlearning, Steelcase also held a panel discussion during the Expo, where education and business experts shared their insights on the changing approaches to education and work spaces.

Steelcase Education works with educational institutions to create the most effective, rewarding and inspiring learning environments. "We were thrilled to return to Learning & Teaching Expo, sharing our latest research and insights into creating spaces that better equip students for newly emerging modes of learning and teaching," said Owen Pescod, Market Manager of Steelcase Education.

"We are seeing an increased interest in offering personalised learning, which encourages a much more tailored learning experience for students. In this approach, the role of the teacher shifts to help guide each student on their unique journey. This has implications in terms of the way a school campus is designed and the settings we find there."

Steelcase has studied the ever-evolving changes in teaching and learning for years, conducting primary research through engagement with schools at all levels, and secondary research that focuses on the study of learning science, brain science, ergonomics and environmental behavior theory. In one of its publications, for example, Steelcase Education used its research findings, industry insights and innovative furniture to demonstrate how to design learner-centric education spaces - from the classroom and library to social areas and faculty workplace.
