Ferco: education seating made better

SPONSORED: Nicola Haw explains how the Collaborative Wave promotes active and inclusive learning

Posted by Rob Bertels | December 04, 2017 | Facilities

New Innovation in Lecture Theatre Seating

Developed to address new learning for a new generation, the Collaborative Wave supports and facilitates a wide range of teaching styles and new pedagogic approaches including active learning. 

With its contemporary aesthetic, the system provides an active learning space which enhances student engagement and outcomes.

It features an aesthetically pleasing curved desk with a larger than average writing surface, teamed with individual front-of-class seats which rotate and move away from the desk, creating smaller collaborative student-led learning ‘pods’ which promotes flexibility for study groups and also encourage engagement and communication.

Mirroring real life working environments, the wave both maximises physical space and integrates fully with and supports technology and digital classrooms.  

 

Campus Asset Innovation

Universities have the power to transform the lives for all their students, but success will only happen if practices that empower inclusive learning for all students are planned through strategic developments, and with leadership support to embed them across the campus at every stage of curriculum development and student engagement.

Ferco has forged strong links with some of the UK’s leading universities and colleges and continues to develop design-led educational seating products that provide the foundations for innovative teaching and learning.

Unique Seating System

Seating solutions are intelligently designed and flexible – and engineered to withstand the rigours of busy lecture spaces.

The seats offer ergonomic and postural support, individual height adjustment and will return to the original front-facing position when not in use. The seats can be upholstered in a huge range of fabrics to enhance any design scheme, while the desktop and modesty panel can be made to compliment the aesthetic.

With the right technology in place, students – as individuals or groups – can share their information.   And whatever information is on the front screen, can be viewed by students on their own digital devices, allowing them to make personalised notes and use any assistive technology they own to support their learning.  With such technology, the Collaborative Wave creates an inclusive and fully accessible learning environment for larger cohorts.

And In this dynamic period of change, we are constantly innovating to provide the most effective learning environment, working with you to provide the optimal solution for your educational institution and to ensure your lecture theatre reflects the way you intend to use your space. We are focused on partnership, collaboration and client satisfaction.
