Abstract

This report considers the impact that building information modelling (BIM) is having on the learning needs of undergraduates and postgraduates; in particular those programmes within the built environment and architectural schools and faculties. With Government strategy now gathering momentum, developing an informed and equipped workforce is a growing priority. Besides this is the requirement that all higher education institutions (HEIs) respond to changing needs across industry, and although many programmes have begun to recognise this, the need for guidance and consistency has also come into focus. BAF was established in late 2011 to respond to these needs and now includes the vast majority of HEIs with an interest in this area. The opportunity to build upon the original work of the group, particularly around articulating learning outcomes, and to share information was further enhanced by a HEA-funded interactive workshop at the University of Salford, November 2012.
