Mitigating Stress

What Neuroscience Teaches Us About Work and Collaboration
Delivered November 18, 2020
Presented by Ryan J. Mullenix, NBBJ | Megha Parekh Sinha, NBBJ
Planning Types: Campus Planning

The COVID-19 pandemic is a major disruption and yet a distinct opportunity to reimagine a better way to live. Backed by neuroscience research from the NBBJ Fellowship Program with New York Times best-selling author Dr. John Medina—an initiative by the global design and planning firm NBBJ—this session presents research and ideas to create more uplifting experiences at work and how to mitigate stress for frontline workers, both immense challenges in light of an ongoing pandemic and the associated economic uncertainty.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Understand key neuroscience research about how to best work and collaborate virtually.
  2. Tie brain science research to design and planning solutions that lead to healthier on- and off-campus experiences.
  3. Walk away with an overview of key provocations for the future that seek to reduce stress—whether for students, faculty or staff.
