    Seminar #1: The Information, Knowledge and Techniques to Help Navigate the Truths, Myths, Misconceptions and Lies about LEDs
    (This seminar was previously offered on Thursday, April 18, 2013)
    LED technology has been rapidly advancing and has offered exciting new options in providing illumination for many applications. There is a systems approach to the manufacturing of LED luminaire which requires an understanding of the performance benefits. This allows the lighting specifier to separate the myths from the realities when working with LED luminaires.

    Seminar #2: Designing Healthy Lighting for Senior Living
    As we age, the physical and aesthetic manners in which we see are altered. A mature eye requires more light to function while being increasingly more sensitive to glare. This session will discuss some of the physiologies of this change and explore avenues to combat the changes in both institutional and residential applications. Awareness, empathy and knowledge are the keys to lighting solutions for the aging eye.

    Seminar #3: Quality of the Visual Environment
    Lighting design has evolved well beyond product specifications and lighting calculations. A great lighting design merges the art and the science of lighting into a work of art. The IESNA has a formal system for considering a wide range of lighting design criteria. By taking into account the critical issues in each space and melding the aesthetic aspects, the designs can be fabulous to look at while being functional and comfortable to the people in the space.
