The Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership L4H project was officially launched on 4 October 2018. Over three years, the Consortium will run summer schools, workshops and meetings to create a multi-disciplinary teaching course on the topic of “Health Research for Lighting Design”. The course will consist of three educational modules: “Interior Lighting for Domestic Spaces”, “Lighting for Working / Educational Environments”, and “Lighting for Healthcare Environments”.
The Summer Schools will give participants the opportunity to identify key factors and new emergent themes in health research-based lighting design to be implemented in academic curricula and research. The added value of holding intensive educational programmes in the format of Summer Schools is that intercultural learning will take place more effectively face-to-face, as teachers and students interact in an energizing and motivating way. Teaching staff from the partner organisations will give classes and observe each other working with learners in the classroom setting. Thus, it will be a valuable learning experience both for students and lecturers.
In addition, all three Summer Schools will provide training and hands-on experience on how the best available tools and equipment for health research can be applied by lighting designers.
