COLOUR Your World
A discussion about how we perceive colour, how it impacts us, affects our mood, well-being and even our ability to learn. We will explore how these impacts change as we age. We will consider how to intentionally apply colour to various spaces as we design learning environments.
- What is colour
- How do we perceive colour and how does it affect us?
- What are the impacts of each colour on our cognitive,
psychological and physiological health and well being?
- How do gradients of hue and shade impact the effect colour
has on us?
- How does colour impact our learning?
- How does the way colour impact us change as we age?
- How to intentionally apply colour to various spaces and
environments in the design of learning environments

Indoor Air Quality in Educational Facilities Webinar
November 18, 2020
1:00 PM – 2:00 PM MST
School reopening during the COVID pandemic has become a debate in the past few months and both K-12 and post secondary facilities are being challenged to mitigate the risks. Heightened awareness around the risk of airborne diseases matched with climate-induced seasonal wildfire smoke reinforces the importance of indoor air quality when designing learning spaces for student health and success.
Join Mary On
and Samson Tam
as they explore the reason why indoor air quality
has become an important topic for schools
in recent years and discuss potential solutions, passive and active strategies that bring long term health effects in schools.
This session will include a 20-minute presentation
followed by a 15-minute Q+A and 20-minute guided breakout discussion
for networking, sharing of ideas and challenges.
Please register for this free event. Once you have registered, you will be sent a link to access the webinar.
