You Light Up My Life, But is That a Good Thing?

For most of us, light has been something we’ve always controlled with a simple flip of the switch. The convenience of light on demand lengthened our days, and shortened our nights. But today, we are beginning to realize light affects us in more ways than we could have imagined just a few short years ago.

In this course, we will examine the non-visual impact of light in our lives and how this knowledge is changing the way we view light in our world.


  • Discuss and better understand the science of light.
  • Investigate the non-visual impact light plays in our lives, including on circadian rhythms
  • Review the WELL Building Standard and LRC Circadian Stimulus as it relates to lighting
  • Identify trends around dynamic lighting
