Hilton Head, South Carolina March 25- March 27


Welcome to

Hilton Head, South Carolina


Hilton Head Island is one of the most popular resort destinations in the United States. Settlement began in the 17th century, but the Island was not connected to the mainland until 1956. Offering quality accommodations, championship golf and tennis, 12 miles of beautiful sandy beaches, marinas, nature preserves, and some of the finest shopping and dining in the Southeast, Hilton Head is a great resort for all ages.

Trung Le, AIA Principal | Practice Leader | The Third Teacher Plus of Cannon Design Toward a Regenerative Learning Ecology When complex global problems require creative thinking... When we are swept into a global culture but simultaneously find our specific, physical locale irreplaceable... When social networks reveal the capacity of and necessity for collaboration... When passionate learning is active, dynamic and happening outside education institutions... When students flourish in the face of challenges that are real and impact the world... When the environments and expectations for learning are identical to those from the Industrial Era... It is time to change the conversation about learning. It is time to transform our understanding of teaching and learning. It is time for a holistic consideration that creates a new ecology of living, growing and learning for our children.

Student Centered Learning Environments using the Building as a Teaching Tool Date/Time: March 26, 10:45 AM Location: Salon A To be truly successful, a Student-Centered Learning Environment project must be addressed in its entirety, not just one or two of its many pieces. This session will endeavor to define and address each of the facets that make up a successful project. The facets include developing the initial vision for the exciting new learning environment, engaging the public and organizing a successful campaign, designing a truly innovative facility that encompasses the necessary solutions, planning, executing and managing the construction process, assuring the facility is complete, safe and fully operational for the students, faculty and staff to occupy and that is just the beginning - to make the school truly successful it must be an environment that encourages learning. This session will use Marshall County’s LEED Schools; Hilltop Elementary and the New Cameron High School project as the crucible for exploring how the built environment can help drive the learning process by addressing solutions to real word problems. Addressing the topics will be the professionals that were directly involved in the project design construction and curriculum development. Thom Worlledge – McKinley & Associates Mark Swiger – Marshall County Schools



Flexible Learning Environments: A Presentation on the Design and Theory of Elementary 19 for Richland School District Two Date/Time: March 26, 10:45 AM Location: Salon B


Elementary 19 is the first school in Richland School District Two built under the new Superintendent Dr. Katie Brochu. Dr. Brochu brought with her new concepts and ideas for the design and curriculum of educational spaces. Luke McCary the project Architect with Stevens and Wilkinson and Dr. Brochu will lead the interactive presentation discussing the evolution in program and design based on the revised curriculum and teaching methods planned for the school. The floor plan features spaces that allow for a variety of teaching methods in large and small group settings. The design is centered around 4 pods that function as smaller schools within the 750 student population. Each pod focuses around a large central commons and can contain a mixture of grade levels pre-k through 5. The project is targeted as LEED Silver and is set to be under construction shortly. Luke McCary, AIA – Stevens & Wilkinson Dr. Katie Brochu – Superintendent, Richland School District Two


Collaborative Design for Collaborative Education: Non Traditional High School Design for Montgomery Alabama Date/Time: March 26, 10:45 AM Location: Salon C In 2005 Montgomery Public Schools developed a comprehensive Facility Master plan which was updated in 2010 and a program developed to include the construction of a new high school for east Montgomery which does not have a high school and a majority of the students either attend a magnet school or various private schools. This session will discuss the planning and issues of developing a new high school program which is attractive to potential students while fitting in well with the new urbanism developments located in its attendance area. The new high school is being designed to physically illustrate the 21st Century learning concepts adopted by the Montgomery public School system. The Superintendent of Education, Ms. Thompson will provide insight into the educational goals of the project and discuss the hurdles involved in reaching consensus within the community. The architect, Mr. Lynn will discuss how the traditional high school design in Montgomery has been reinvented from the ground up to enhance the learning concepts Montgomery Public Schools are implementing.

Adaptive Re-Use for Student-Centered Learning Date/Time: March 26, 1:30 PM Location: Salon B Learning is far more complicated than once thought, but far simpler than commonly presumed. It involves so much more than curriculum and test results. Now that the economy has left so many office buildings, warehouses and strip shopping centers empty or at reduced market value there are unique opportunities for school districts. We will provide examples of past projects and how we created unique learning spaces out of old buildings. A prime example is the New North Atlanta High School being adaptively reused from an eleven story office building formally occupied by IBM. This new high school will contain four Small Learning Communities occupying the top eight floors of the building. We will address the spatial relationships and how each learning community will contain communicating spaces as part of the learning approach. As well, common spaces are being designed with the understanding that learning often takes place outside the classroom. Not forgetting the traditional classrooms, laboratories, studios and seminar spaces we will also discuss these spaces with regard to flexibility and how learning is a product of the entire facility and surrounding environment.

“Smarter Schools” – How Evidence Based Design has Improved Buildings for Learning Date/Time: March 26, 1:30 PM Location: Salon C This presentation seeks to offer a brief history into the development of the school building from its early years to its current state in the 21st century and the factors that impact its design, most notably a student centered approach to teaching. The presentation will address various teaching methodologies over the past 75 years and examine the resulting architecture that those methodologies sparked. Evidence based design is a phrase that applies to any process which takes cues from past experiences and embeds those lessons learned into the design itself. No building type offers more examples of evidence based design opportunities than schools, and with the advent of new materials, new technology, and new building systems the opportunities are very exciting. Collaborative, problem solving, engagement, interdisciplinary are all words that describe the new learning landscape. The schools of the future need to embrace this direction in order to capture the energy of today’s student.

CEFPI-SE New Regional and Chapter Officer Training and Orientation Date/Time: March 26, 3:00 PM Location: Salon A Many times new chapter and regional board members are elected but do not have an understanding of the responsibilities of their office, bylaw requirements, and the relationship between State, Regional, and International organizations. CEFPI-SE suggests all new chapter and board members would benefit from attending this session which will include overview of office responsibilities and tools available from CEFPI International. We will also discuss “best practices” as they apply to each Chapter. Plan to attend for acquiring information regarding your new position and how to assist CEFPI-SE and your chapter in becoming better organizations. Jim Copeland, AIA, REFP – Moseley Architects. Carla Terian – CEFPI



The Immersive LearningScape Date/Time: March 26, 3:00 PM Location: Salon B In an increasingly flattening world, a heightened focus on providing an outstanding 21st century education will be the differentiator in how we compete on a global scale. How will we holistically teach students; allowing them to experience new learning methodologies and embrace the world as an accessible, transposable knowledge environment? The classroom must give way to the LearningScape: a combination of spaces that together make a landscape for various ways of scholarship and multiple opportunities for size-specific learning. The Immersive LearningScape of the future will be centered on authentic, experiential learning to create a classroom environment where students are able to Think, Create, Discover, Impart and Exchange through various interaction levels with other students, teachers, professors and mentors ‌ whether they are in the same room or across the world.

Planning and Design Strategies for 21st Century Middle Schools Date/Time: March 26, 3:00 PM Location: Salon C When the new Colonel Smith Middle School Complex opens in 2012, it will be one of the country's most progressive examples of a collaborative and technology-based learning environment for middle school students. This presentation shows how the client's dynamic vision, combined with a truly integrated planning and design process, will result in a high-tech, flexible, and sustainable 21st century learning environment. From the beginning, the client, Fort Huachuca Accommodation School District, expressed the desire to implement a STEM curriculum with a focus on project-based, interdisciplinary instruction. A collaborative approach that brought all disciplines to the table from day one greatly enhanced this effort. Hand-held technology, cloud computing, flexible furniture and furnishings, and Net Zero Energy Building strategies are just a few of the elements used to achieve a student-focused planning and design solution that can be applied to new or renovated middle schools across the country.

NEW DIRECTIONS, or better stated … Now What? Panel Discussion Date/Time: March 27, 10:30AM Location: Exhibit/Meeting Hall In recognition of the large scale changes impacting educational organizations (economy, instruction practice, technology, etc …) over the last few years, the CEFPI-SE Region 2011 Strategic Plan created a focus group to identify the variables in the new directions occurring in the marketplace. Come and participate in this panel discussion to assist the sub-committee identify the areas and issues where our constituency would benefit from CEFPI-SE developing awareness and expertise. Topics could include Community Use of Schools, Changing Requirements of Core Space, Innovative Collaboration for Silo Organizations, Assessing Benefits of Design Innovations (Technology); Business Teams (Project Team Building), Temporary Space (mobile, swing, alternate, recovery, etc…) among a few. This is your chance to assist in defining the specific areas of interest the Region will intentionally focus on over the next few years, providing valuable benefits to our public and private members.
