Description

The National Institute of Building Sciences buildingSMART alliance is sponsoring its ninth event to focus on building information modeling (BIM) in education. The BIM Academic Symposium will be held Tuesday, April 7, 2015, followed by a BIM Job Task Analysis Review on Wednesday, April 8, at the Institute’s headquarters in Washington, D.C.

This two-day event brings together representatives of different academic programs and industries to discuss the technology-based collaboration among the architecture, engineering, construction, owner, and operator (AECOO) industry and academia. The Academic Workshop will explore how BIM educational activities incorporated at different levels of college curriculum are affecting the attainment of educational outcomes through credentialing, accreditation, or certification.

AGENDA

  Tuesday, April 7, 2015: BIM Academic Symposium
  The Symposium agenda consists of 10-min. presentations of papers grouped by similar subject, followed by small panel sessions with the authors to entertain questions and discuss findings.

Wednesday, April 8, 2015: BIM Job Task Analysis

Universities are providing education related to BIM and in this ninth annual event; we have seen that effort mature over time, but we are still not necessarily in harmony on the product. By defining the job task analysis it will help identify a target toward which we can all aim.

This day is focused on how we will define the knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSA) and the job task analysis (JTA) process. A typical JTA Workshop spans three days with a psychometrician facilitator. Certainly, we are not going to replace the ultimate JTA workshop needed, however we have gotten to the point of determining that a single BIM position is likely not the end point.

The day will begin with a review of initial work developed by the National Institute of Building Sciences – Commercial Workforce Credentialing Council for the Department of Energy as well as work by Dr. Wei Wu, California State University, Fresno; Dr. Raymond Issa, University of Florida; and Dr. Tamera McCuen, University of Oklahoma; into knowledge, skills, and abilities needed for BIM positions. The intent of this discussion and workshop is to vet the initial findings as case studies and develop a strategy for work to be taken up by the buildingSMART alliance Academic Interoperability Coalition.
