  • Find out why generations don’t mix and how to bridge the learning gaps on site and in the office
  • Learn how one contractor changed its technology DNA
  • Hear details on how millennials and boomers linked to bring transparency and speed to one iconic racetrack reconstruction

Gilbane exhibiting at A4LE North Carolina Chapter Conference

The conference will explore the potential impacts, innovations and inspirations that may result from transforming spaces to empower each and every individual learner. Whether you call it Project-Based Learning, 21st Century Learning or hands-on learning, one thing is clear – this isn’t the school we all grew up in. Curriculum focuses on the development of creativity, critical thinking, communication and collaboration. How do our facilities reflect, support and promote today’s learning styles? How does it work for each individual student? How do we transform existing spaces to support this mission?

Schools, educational leaders and designers are dedicated to preparing students for life in collaborative learning environments and cooperative work teams. School design is following suit, with environments that encourage multi-disciplinary education that more closely simulates the workplace, our lives and our future in a rapidly changing world.
