About this Event

Cognitive scientists have learned a lot about how physical environments influence our mood and, through our mood, how we think and behave. Science-based findings can be applied in practice to develop places where people perform to their full potential and have other positive working experiences. Rigorous research effectively details how design can, via mood, improve collaboration with others, concentration on solo work, job satisfaction, employee engagement, and trust in employers and co-workers, for example. This course translates cognitive science research that can be used in practice from “science-ease” into everyday language so it can, in the economic context of efficient real estate management, be utilized now and in the future to create places where people work well and feel good while doing so.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how environmental psychology research informs the psychology of space to affect moods.
  • Become familiar with how the power of design and sensory experiences affect mood and, via mood, employee performance, job satisfaction, engagement, and trust in employers and coworkers.
  • Recognize the design universals that optimize sensory experiences to encourage positive moods.
  • Be able to integrate relevant science-based findings and real world concerns, to support desired emotional experiences and boost human performance.

This course is approved through IDCEC for credit with IIDA, ASID and IDC and is also AIA CES approved LU | HSW
