Dr. Lauren Ronsse is a Assistant Professor of Acoustics in the Audio Arts & Acoustics Department at Columbia College Chicago. Eric Leonardson will introduce the meeting and moderate the discussion.

Sound transmission and reception is an essential aspect of communication and the environment. Among the outcomes of this meeting will be a discussion on how building design and construction affect quality of teaching and learning. Improved acoustic environments will benefit both children and adults. Our discussion aims to find ways to improve upon existing building structures, while creating effective strategies and opportunities for the future of acoustical design and architecture.
