Abstract

The paper presents the initial findings of the UK-based Accelerating Change for Built Environment Education (ACBEE) initiative. An empirical investigation of first phase ACBEE case studies of excellence has been carried out to unpack the type and level of industry-higher education engagement within UK built environment courses. These range in nature from continuing professional development and whole courses down to individual modules taught at undergraduate, postgraduate or corporate levels. The method comprised of the structuring and classification of the case studies through the use of setting and content codes. These were tabulated and subsequently analysed to determine the characteristics of engagement. This has resulted in the development of an initial outline classification framework of the type and level of industry/higher education engagement derived from the case study analysis.
