This book is the essential guide to the pedagogical and industry-inspired considerations that must shape how BIM is taught and learned. It will help academics and professional educators to develop programmes that meet the competences required by professional bodies and prepare both graduates and existing practitioners to advance the industry towards higher efficiency and quality.
To date, systematic efforts to integrate pedagogical considerations into the way BIM is learned and taught remain non-existent. This book lays the foundation for forming a benchmark around which such an effort is made. It offers principles, best practices, and expected outcomes necessary to BIM curriculum and teaching development for construction-related programs across universities and professional training programmes. The aim of the book is to:
- Highlight BIM skill requirements, threshold concepts, and dimensions for practice;
- Showcase and introduce tried-and-tested practices and lessons learned in developing BIM-related curricula from leading educators;
- Recognise and introduce the baseline requirements for BIM education from a pedagogical perspective;
- Explore the challenges, as well as remedial solutions, pertaining to BIM education at tertiary education;
- Form a comprehensive point of reference, covering the essential concepts of BIM, for students;
- Promote and integrate pedagogical consideration into BIM education.
This book is essential reading for anyone involved in BIM education, digital construction, architecture, and engineering, and for professionals looking for guidance on what the industry expects when it comes to BIM competency.
