Affordances are the characteristics of a space that encourage certain behaviors. This course presents the physical, emotional, and cognitive affordances employees need in order to do their work, as well as the role of the workplace in providing support. A well-designed workspace participates in enabling optimal human performance–cognitively, emotionally, and physically.
This 1-hour course explores the concept of affordance, which when applied effectively in the workplace can help create the conditions that support well-being—allowing people to do their best work and enhancing the workplace experience.
