The University of Bath piloted a Masters course on Modern Building design for the 2014/2015 calendar year. The course included such concepts as smart materials, modern methods of construction as well as BIM.
Digital Node supported the University of Bath and created content for the MSc in Modern Building design. It was our responsibility to create content for the module ‘BIM and the Design Process’ and align this content to the overall course as well as in line with industry best practice and guidance.
We aimed to resource the course accordingly with industry involvement which involved experts from the Construction Industry providing course content and guidance.
The main intention of the course was to align the learning outcomes to the BIM Task Group’s Learning Outcome framework and ensure students completed the module with the current processes and knowledge needed to understand the UK Governments BIM objectives for Level 2 BIM.
Digital Node also supported the module with Technical Workshops where we were able to tutor on technologies currently available in the BIM environment in industry including design software, coordination software and Computer Aided Facilities Management tools.
“Rebecca put together an excellent course, carefully tailored to meet the varied needs of our postgraduate students who had a wide range of backgrounds and experience. She took responsibility for creating the teaching material, delivering it in an effective and professional manner, and assessing it according to our regulations and tight deadlines. She was able to draw on her vast network of high-level industrial contacts to help make the classes interesting and relevant, building a good rapport with the students which was demonstrated through their overwhelmingly positive feedback on her course and teaching style at the end of the year.”
