Designing the Classroom of the Future

From Hybrid to HiFlex – the evolving HED classroom

What was once a proof of concept is now in high demand across the country, as universities look to implement hybrid and HiFlex solutions now. Join us February 23rd to leverage the learnings from someone who has successfully designed and implemented the classroom of the future – twice. 

Gary Kayye has been in AV design for 25+ years and he’s also a full-time professor at the University of North Carolina.  His unique perspective led him to design two iterations of UNC’s classroom of the future and to freely share those plans with his colleagues. The result? 50 colleges and universities around the world leveraging these plans as a launch-pad for their own AV-over-IP-based classrooms and active-learning spaces. 

The college classroom or lecture hall is no longer a confined space between 4-walls. Every classroom needs hybrid capability and some likely need a true hiflex environment. This design approach to a learning space means that a student never has to miss class, a professor can teach from anywhere in the world, lectures are automatically streamed and archived and in-room projectors are really more of a digital canvas than a display. 

Join us on Feb 23rd 2p EST/11a PST for a conversation with Gary Kayye to discuss lessons learned, things to consider and AV solutions available today.

The Evolution of Physical Retail Spaces

As the retail experience continues to evolve, so does the role of the store. More research is emerging that supports the need for increasingly compelling in-store experiences. “Immersive” retail has become an effective mechanism for doing so, but what exactly is it? Why is it important and how is it being measured? Join us on October 5 as Remi Del Mar, Product Manager for Commercial Displays and AR Solutions, Epson American, Inc., hosts a live Q&A with two thought leaders and influencers in this space: Laura Davis-Taylor and Jennifer Acevedo.

Laura Davis-Taylor is the founder of Branded Ground and has more than 25 years’ experience as a consultant and within the walls of the most lauded global agencies. Jennifer Acevedo is the editor-in-chief and associate publisher of VMSD magazine. Together, they will offer industry insights and thought-provoking ideas about the future of retail, including the impact of experiences that can turn physical stores into destinations and how brands can transform themselves from being seen to being remembered.
