AS192 Steelcase Partnership

An Engaging Learning Space

A classroom with a singular focus to provide all learners with a interactive space.

The AS192 Classroom Design

The room was updated in 2013 with a generous donation from the Steelcase who truly transformed the space into a flexible modern day classroom. Using Steelcase’s flexible Verb line, instructors can seamlessly adapt the learning space from a collaborative group setting to an individualized lecture/testing environment. The Verb Collection features chevron tables and Node chairs that accommodate a variety of classroom layouts.  The Collection’s signature individual whiteboards are the foundation for collaboration, display and presentation. The unique marriage of furniture and instructional tools within this Collection transform both the space and the instructional delivery.

Why Steelcase?

Steelcase Education is focused on creating the most effective, regarding and inspiring active learning environments to meet the evolving needs of students and educators. Steelcase provides an evidence-based approach to their design strategy that includes best practices, innovative research, evaluation and data-driven assessment of the design spaces implemented at each institution.

It’s Verb!  Thinking and doing…

Steelcase’s Verb provides an integrated collection of classroom furniture designed to support a full range of teaching and learning styles that engage the learners.
