“Creating Engaging Learning Spaces in the Hub City - Centering Around Learning"


Creating engaging learning spaces is an integral part of the educational process.  While creating well-designed learning spaces is great for ambiance, studies also prove that well-designed learning spaces also enhance the overall learning experience for our students. 

Our educators and students deserve learning spaces that are engaging, inspiring, and cultivate creativity. 

Join us in Spartanburg at the 2020 South Carolina Chapter Conference as we re-examine the planning, design, construction, pedagogy and operations of our learning environments.

We invite you to share your expertise with other industry experts in the field of educational environments. As communities respond to their evolving needs, we ask you to share your lessons, stories and expertise of creating exemplar learning environments.

Please note the sessions are to be educational in nature. Sales, product, or marketing presentations will not be accepted.

Proposals must be submitted by November 25, 2019.
