Do You Hear What I (Should) Here? Optimising Spaces for Acoustics and Inclusion

Leanne Rose-Munro, Learning Space Advisor, Monash University and Amanda Robinson, Associate Director, Marshall Day Acoustics

The fundamental purpose of learning spaces is to facilitate speaking, listening, collaboration and learning. But some spaces do not have optimal acoustic conditions, with noise generation and reverberation excluding many learners. By equipping participants with basic acoustic knowledge and tools, we will demonstrate how spaces can be optimised to their full potential.

Participants can send a picture of a learning space beforehand, with comments on how the space ‘sounds’, and what it’s like to speak, listen and collaboratively teach and learn in. The presenters will help you get the most from your space.
