A room with many applications

Tips

The control panel should be located by both the lecturer’s position and by the doors. It is likely that scenes would include full lighting for entrance, exit and note taking and a reduced light level for slides or films.

Large rooms used primarily for lectures, especially with seating for more than 80 pupils, tend to be raked with the lecturer situated on a podium to ensure visibility. The various levels and steps must be lit at all times.

A larger proportion of general lighting is required so the students have good working conditions; the SLL guideline suggests between 300–400 lx on the writing surface.

Extra lighting should be provided for the location of the lecturer to enable them to both read notes clearly and maintain student concentration.

Visual distraction should be kept to a minimum and contrast on the teaching board or screen should also be created. A similar level of importance should be placed on the ambient light as in a classroom.
