We need to evolve from making spaces that merely sustain to crafting ones that help people thrive and prosper. But to do so, we need to understand the diversity and complexities of human psychological needs. In this webinar, two psychological experts will discuss theoretical frameworks that help us understand how people relate to their physical environments, and highlight approaches used to recognize whether spaces are working for workspace occupants. Topics will include methods and case studies that illustrate how to better understand occupant preferences and behaviors using surveys, experience sampling, and physiological metrics using wearable sensors.
The Center for the Built Environment and Livable Analytics hosted the Webinar Series on Workplace Performance, Design, and Evaluation: a free seminar/webinar series exploring the perspectives of building occupants, and presenting tools and strategies to create and support successful workplaces. This event was the first of the webinar series, and was hosted on May 4, 2016.
