2020 has changed the way we work, socialize, and learn. While we work to integrate valuable learning methods with new ways of doing things to ensure our safety, we ponder what the classrooms of tomorrow will look like.

Join us for our first virtual fall conference as we ask experts in the field of education and design what we can expect for the future of educational environments.
