Communication can flow freely and most effectively in learning environments that incorporate a combination of small intimate spaces and group spaces that encourage the sharing of ideas. Communication Zones promote active discussion
around conference-style configurations. They also provide the multi-purpose furnishings and resources that allow students to illustrate ideas, delegate tasks or brainstorm topics.
Giving students the opportunity to grow their confidence, self-esteem and exercise critical communication skills in a supportive space is vital to not only their personal and academic growth, but also their future careers.
