To further support Educators in developing their skills and curriculum, Autodesk has announced a series of webcasts specifically for Educators.
The next is April 1, 2011:
Building Information Modeling and the Implication for Architecture Pedagogy. Building Information Modeling (BIM) is being rapidly adopted by architects, engineers and contractors with significant, if only vaguely understood, implications for the practice of architecture. Changes in design approach, project organization, collaboration, legal and risk parameters, fabrication and construction execution are likely to be profound, as are the ramifications for pedagogy. This presentation will examine both industry context and teaching implications of BIM in the training of architects, investigate potential relationships with accreditation criteria, and propose strategies for connecting BIM, practice and teaching approaches.
Your participation in generating topics of value will ensure that these webcasts are a productive use of your limited time for learning new industry information and the Autodesk solutions.
Notice that the classes are stated in Pacific time, so be sure to adjust your appointment time according to your time zone. (Eastern Standard Time, subtract three hours).
And don’t worry, if you miss a webinar, such as today’s Paramentric Design and Energy Analysis – What Students Need to Know, check here for the archives.
