summary

The present special issue of the Journal of Information Technology in Construction is comprised of a selection of papers initially presented at the 9th AiC BIM Academic Symposium & Job Task Analysis Review held 7-8 April 2015 and hosted at the National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) headquarters in Washington, DC. The Academic interoperability Coalition (AiC) BIM Academic Symposium series (http://www.bcn.ufl.edu/cacim/conferences/) is an event held in April of each year and has provided a productive platform for the presentation and discussion of the most recent advances with regard to the teaching of Building Information Modeling (BIM) in institutions of higher learning. The present selection of – substantially revised and extended – papers from the AiC symposium includes outstanding contributions covering BIM in Education topics related to:

  • Learning Outcomes Assessments
  • Pedagogical Models
  • Interdisciplinary Approaches
  • Research Opportunities
  • Accreditation Issues
  • Curriculum Integration
  • Sample Courses & Sample Lessons
  • Student Projects

As the editor of this special issue, I would like to acknowledge the strong and active community of academics, researchers, and industry experts in view of their excellent contributions to the field, as selectively manifested in the present collection of the papers. I specially thank Dana K. “Deke” Smith, FAIA for his contribution to the success of the AiC Symposia.
