The objective of this Academic Workshop is to gather representatives of different academic programs and industry to discuss learning approaches to be incorporated at different levels of college curriculum. The effort is intended to generate collaboration throughout architecture, engineering, construction, owner, and operator (AECOO) industry.

Researchers, academicians, and practitioners in the AECOO industry are invited to submit short papers (no more than 8 pages) and/or presentations describing best practices, experiences, and challenges incorporating BIM in creating educational opportunities. Papers are also invited to describe specific course or project experiences. Specific topics to be addressed include:
