‘BIM-Hub’ – A learning hub for international problem-based learning

  • The Project
  • Explore an innovative approach to international problem-based learning in the Built Environment (BE) education using a real-time online collaboration platform, in order to enhance employability skills.
  • Demonstrate and test methods, practices, technologies to support the international collaboration using Building Information Modelling (BIM) platform.
  • Final year students from Loughborough, Coventry and Ryerson (Toronto) Universities form multidisciplinary design teams and use BIM to develop a building scheme in the initial stages of design.
  • Develop a guidance of effective practice for international collaboration in BIM and to disseminate the findings via BIM-Hub website.
  • Anticipated Impact
  • The project has the potential for large-scale impact:
  • Guidance and lessons learnt from the virtual teamworking process and the organisation of international collaboration, via website.
  • The basis of a community of learning for a large number of educators and students.
  • Wider adoption of the approach within curricula of BE courses across the globe.
  • Redefine the collaboration within a real-time online platform, with a far-reaching impact on construction education and industry practice and policy, particularly in supporting businesses become BIM level 3 compliant.
  • Data
  • Focus groups/ interviews with all three participating universities, reviewing their experience of collaboration and barriers and factors promoting success.
  • Pre- and post-implementation questionnaires, looking at experience of online collaboration, relevant technologies motivation and employability.
  • Recordings of virtual meetings held in GoToMeeting, viewing students’ improvement in collaboration, use of technology.
  • Personal reflections from students and staff involved.
  • Interim Findings
  • Empirical evidence gathered so far:
  • Improved project management skills of participating students.
  • 17% increase of student satisfaction level from the previous year.
  • Analysis of data has identified:
  • Factors that support and impede students’ learning, collaboration and interaction in various online environments.
  • Interim models for learning in online collaborative learning .
