AS196 HON Partnership

A Flexible Learning Space

One classroom with the capability to meet many teaching styles…

The AS196 Classroom Design

The room was updated in 2011 with a generous donation from the HON Company who truly transformed the space into a flexible modern day classroom. Imagine having the capability to redesign a classroom within minutes to support the learning goals.  With the innovative shape of the SmartLink furniture, any instructor can easily modify the learning space environment tailoring it to fit the lesson design and purpose; whether the need be for individual, student/group collaboration or student-centered layouts.

Why HON?

HON transforms a learning space to create a dynamic classroom environment using easily moveable SmartLink furniture.
