Noise, acoustic, and the psychological work environment - Significance of the sound environment for a good working environment in schools

The overall objective of the project is to investigate to what extent a better sound environment can improve teachers’ wellbeing. The researchers behind the project will undertake a controlled acoustic intervention in two Danish elementary schools. The hypotheses is that a better acoustics has the following effects:

  • The background noise in the classes decreases when teachers teach.
  • The sound environment is better - ie. that teachers find to be less exposed to noise at work, and less disruption and turmoil in the class.
  • Teachers thrive better - ie. that they experience an improvement in their work environment on the following parameters:
    • exertion level
    • perceived demands at work
    • requirements for concentration
    • signs of strain and stress (mental fatigue, headache, and voice problems)
    • job satisfaction and
    • thinking about quitting the job.
