Conference: Pedagogy meets Big Data and BIM

29 May 2013

On June 24-25 2013, The Bartlett is holding a conference exploring the role of cutting-edge digital technologies in built environment education.

Bartlett pedagogy conference poster

Entitled 'Pedagogy meets Big Data and BIM: Built environment education and information management', the conference will explore the fact that the digital world is colliding with the physical environment more and more frequently. For example, the built environment is increasingly monitored, managed and constructed using integrated data systems, while live data feeds provide 24/7 monitoring of energy use and movement tracking across our cities.

Building information modelling (BIM) is gaining ground as a response to developing buildings and infrastructure that are problem-free, better matched to purpose and more efficient. But how should built environment educators understand and apply these phenomena in shaping the practice of future built environment professionals?

Through this conference, The Bartlett is initiating discussion with leading thinkers and teachers of the built environment on the most up-to-date issues in critical pedagogy.

Why attend?

This conference will be an ideal place for you to showcase your views on the integration of BIM and big data into higher education and teaching, and to engage with leading international and UK thinkers. You will be given the chance to visit the annual Bartlett Summer Show and network with students and colleagues in Architecture, Construction, Energy & Environment, Engineering, Facility Management, Planning, Project Management, Real Estate, Spatial Analysis and Urban Design.
