Design for education
In addition to designing and producing “hardware” for working and learning, Milder Office offers “Learning Things”, a workshop program designed to assist a community of practice to better understand, make sense of, and collectively improve their work/learning environments and flows.
In two hour workshops, “Learning Things” grow awareness about learning as a system. Building on everyday experiences, workshop participants move from personal insight to a shared understanding on how to best work towards continuous improvement of their work- and learning experience.
