Pupil Participation in School Design - Design and Ergonomics Applied Research Group

A collaboration between ergonomists and children’s geographers to understand factors which effect the participation of pupils in the Building Schools for the Future Programme.

The two year AHRC funded project was completed in June 2009. The funding was used to support Coventry and Northampton Universities’ observations of the way and extent to which pupils were involved in the early stages of the design of their schools. The activities of 10 diverse schools in rural and urban areas around the two universities were analysed with a view to understanding and locating best practice.
