Identifying Best Practice/Lessons Learnt
Time: 14:30 - 15:30
West Calder High School – New Building, New Learning: Neil McIntyre, West Lothian Council, Kevin Cooper, NORR Architects & Julie Calder, West Calder High School
The new West Calder High School opened this summer, based on a radical brief for an innovative client. In this presentation, the client will describe the vision for the new building, the architect will explain the process of its creation and, most importantly, together with the help of some of the young people who’re now using it, the school’s Head Teacher will react to how learning is now being delivered within this ground-breaking new environment. In so doing we will also take time to reflect on the future learning implications of such environments and their connections to wider society.
